OR just a washer or dryer. Hazard is more the dryer.retire09 said:A "laundry Room" as an incidental accessory occupancy requires a 1 hour separation when over 100sf.Is any room or space containing a washer and dryer considered a "laundry Room"?
That would not meet codeOption is to make a laundry closet in the room. Maybe with bi-fold doors.
That would make it a separate room.
The IBC does not have a written definition of "room", when trying to define what constitutes a "laundry room".Just did an electrical and plumbing inspection on a hook up for a stackable dryer/washer in the employee working space in the back of a one room (except for the restrooms) existing 1,000 sq ft hair salon. This is in a old strip mall building with mutable B and M occupancies built before we had codes.
Are you telling me now they need to put in sprinklers or construct 1 hour walls all the way around the room?
