Smoke Detector Install Cathedral Ceilings and SIPS
Ok trying to get one answer. SIP supplier and General Contractor disagree on smoke detector locations.
We are in PA and under 2009 ICC Building Codes.
New Construction, single family residence.
Trying to find out once and for all if the bedroom smoke detectors can be installed on the walls of a bedroom with a cathedral ceiling? SIP guy says wall mounted is ok as long as the top edge of the smoke detector is 4" below the peak of the ceiling but not more than 12". General Contractor says it needs to be ceiling mounted.
Wall mounted is not an issue, but ceiling mounted means we'd need to plan ahead for a wire chase in the panel to account for the ceiling mounted smokie.
Any help is appreciated.
