Machine Room Heat Detector Code Referance : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

I am looking for the code referance for location of heat detectors in relation to the sprinkler heads. I have seen many jobs that had the heat detectors on the other side of mr from the sprinklers and some right next to each other. Do you know what code book and section National and California. Thank You

Jim NFPA-72 3-9.4.2 Heat detectors shall be placed within 2feet of each sprinkler head. Hope this helps.

Don I have a NFPA 72 1990 edition and I will have to get a new code book to find that. Thanks for your help. Jim
