NFPA 13, 2002, CHAP V Classification of Occupancies.


Occupancy classifications for this standard shall relate to sprinkler design, installation, and water supply requirements only.
They shall not be intended to be a general classification of occupancy hazards.
5.2 Light Hazard Occupancies.
Light hazard occupancies shall be occupancies or portions of other occupancies where the quantity and/or combustibility of contents
is low and fires with relatively low rates of heat release are expected.

5.3 Ordinary Hazard Occupancies.


5.3.1* Ordinary Hazard (Group 1).
Ordinary hazard (Group 1) occupancies shall be occupancies or portions of other occupancies where combustibility is low, quantity of combu
stockpiles of combustibles do not exceed 8 ft (2.4 m), and fires with moderate rates of heat release are expected.
5.3.2* Ordinary Hazard (Group 2).
Ordinary hazard (Group 2) occupancies shall be occupancies or portions of other occupancies where the quantity and combustibility of conte
stockpiles do not exceed 12 ft (3.7 m), and fires with moderate to high rates of heat release are expected.

5.4 Extra Hazard Occupancies.


5.4.1* Extra Hazard (Group 1).
Extra hazard (Group 1) occupancies shall be occupancies or portions of other occupancies where the quantity and combustibility of contents
lints, or other materials are present, introducing the probability of rapidly developing fires with high rates of heat release
but with little or no combustible or flammable liquids.
5.4.2* Extra Hazard (Group 2).
Extra hazard (Group 2) occupancies shall include occupancies with moderate to substantial amounts of flammable or combustible liquids or
where shielding of combustibles is extensive.
