Intent 1:

To exempt certain interconnected floor spaces from the requirements of Sentence and Articles to, which would otherwise require a vertical fire separation or certain fire protection measures, if:

  • the location and number of interconnected floors is limited, which will minimize:
    • vertical fire spread, and
    • delays in emergency responder access and evacuation of occupants,
  • the interconnected floor space is sprinklered, which will minimize vertical fire spread,
  • the interconnected floor space contains only certain major occupancies, which will minimize fire risks.
