System Riser room size

System Riser room size

I know the minimum size for a fire sprinkler riser room is 36 SF. But I can't seem to find the code section in NFPA-13 (2013 edition)! I have come across it before but now when I am looking it eludes me.. sad. Please help if you know the code section. Thanks!

RE: System Riser room size

I've never heard of a minimum size and it certainly is not in the standard.

RE: System Riser room size

Thanks! It must have been the guideline recommendations from the various Fire depts. which call for a 36 SF minimum room. Apparently I thought that was in the NFPA-13 standard. Thanks for clearing that up. Much obliged.
