In my Int Fire Code book they list what kind of fire systems are required per what kind of "Group" the building is. Where can I find the definitions for the different groups? Ex Group A, Group E, Group R1 etc.
It sounds like you would have to try the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). However the information is not free. It will cost you, or you could call up an architect. Or a fire sprinkler contrator. Scott
Check with your local BOCA chapter for the exact listings, however a brief description is: A= Assembly (5 different classes) B+ business..........E=Educational..... F=Factory (2 classes).....H=High Hazard....I=Instituional(3 classes)....M=Merchantile....R=Residential(3 classes)....S=Storage (2 classes) and U=Utility. If you want more info, I will get it for you.
That previous post was suppose to say B=Business. Also by different classes A-1 is theater, A-2 is night club, A-3 is restaurant, A-4 is church, and A-5 is outdoor assembly. R-1 is Hotel, R-2 is multi family and R-3 is one/two family dwellings.
