Ceiling Elevation Changes in Storage Occupancies
Victoria B. Valentine, P.E.

Storage occupancies are handled separately within NFPA 13 for spacing, location, and calculation of fire sprinklers.  These buildings may not have a smooth flat horizontal ceiling, especially when an existing building is being converted for use as a storage occupancy.  A change in ceiling elevation could occur with a stepped ceiling or a sloped ceiling.  This program will discuss the rules and their application for a storage area with a change in the elevation of the ceiling.
