Sprinkler coverage above electric car charging points


Recommended Posts

Recently visited a site with sprinkler coverage above electric car charging points in a basement above a multi-story office building. The basement was relatively open to the air (windows with vents in places), but no vents or windows near the car charging points. 

The sprinkler system has a head above each car, but now charging points have been installed. It was the type of building/management where I don't think these additional hazards would have been considered (i.e. high temperature lithium battery fires).

Is there any information/standards relating to this? It's not something I have come across before.
