Rolled Carpet Storage

Rolled Carpet Storage

Rolled Carpet Storage

Is anyone aware of fire sprinkler design criteria for rack storage of rolled carpet other than FMDS0830?

RE: Rolled Carpet Storage

Travis is correct. I don't have access to GE GAP and that would be the only other source other than proprietary fire test data.

RE: Rolled Carpet Storage

I had a project years ago with rack storage of rolled carpet but it was stored ~5'-10' or so. I think we used 0.6/2000 with K14 storage sprinklers.

Higher than that and there isn't anything I'm aware of.
