Need Help Complying with California Building Code 403.6.1?

Let Watts Water Technology and ATS help!

Recently the building department agencies have been enforcing the 403.6.1 code in California which states:

“Sloping floors or floors of varying levels strategically placed drainage. At a minimum, the drainage shall accommodate the calculated flow of the automatic fire sprinklers in the remote design area or 100 gpm, whichever is greater. This design shall not violate accessibility requirements in regard to level landing or threshold height requirements. The required drainage is not intended to accommodate water from sprinklers flowing within the elevator lobby.”
