Is there a such thing as "hospital grade" smoke detectors? I have a dental office project and they
will be installing hospital grade conductors, raceways, grounding, receptacles, an emergency generator
with separate circuitry and other components.
I am wondering about the smoke detectors that are proposed for
installation, ...some in the patient care areas and some in the other non-patient care areas of the building.
This is a Type "B" occupancy building, non-sprinkled, V-B construction, single story, approx. 4,700+ sq. ft.
We are on the 2006 I-Codes and the 2008 NEC. Please list the applicable articles or code sections.
Thanks for any assistance!
