Sprinkler Zones

Sprinkler Zones

Sprinkler Zones

I have a four storey building with each floor level area of 1200 m2. How many sprinkler zones do we need to cover entire floor area and building.

RE: Sprinkler Zones

One Zone Per Floor.

1200 sq meters is 12,917 square foot and the maximum you can have on one floor is 52,000 sq ft.

I am assuming with four floors you have a standpipe with sprinklers supplied from the standpipe.

It is possible to sprinkler the entire building, 12,917 x 4 is less than your 52,000 sq ft maximum but be careful with the local fire official.
