Recently, one of our engine company's discovered several sprinkler riser rooms in the community that lack drywall protection on the interior of the riser rooms. One of them has electrical wiring exposed on the inside of the wall with no conduit protection. Are there code exceptions for sprinkler riser rooms that do not require the interior of the room to be drywalled or have any fire rated construction? Thank you in advance.
