SCIF & Sprinkler Penetration

SCIF & Sprinkler Penetration

SCIF & Sprinkler Penetration

We're working on a new US Gov't project with a SCIF and following UFC 4-010-05 we are required to have a dielectric union in the SCIF on the sprinkler pipe.

Wondering how others are handling this. We've used a section of CPVC through the SCIF wall with black steel on either end of the CPVC for pipes <4" and dielectric gasket kit on flanges when the black steel pipe is 4+". This doesn't meet the black-and-white of the UFC, but we've never failed an inspection, design, or product submittal.

What are you doing when you penetrate a SCIF wall? Do you have a detail or picture that you can share?

I appreciate all the help.
