    No offense intended, but if this is a 5-Star hotel, they have plenty of money. Why not hire a Professional Engineer (Fire Protection Engineer, Architect, or equal) who is familiar with the building codes in your country to answer all of these questions that you post on here. Posting questions such as this on here will only lead to heartache as there are many different codes throughout the US- and you will get many different answers.

    My observation of the OP ...

    He is either non-American, as he seems to have a limited grasp of the english launguage, which in that case, it is likely the hotel is outside of the US and the regulations in the US would not apply, or ...

    ... If he is an American whose primary language is english, I find it hard to beleive that with the grammatical and spelling skills displayed in the post, he could be in a management position in a 5-star hotel.

    Just sayin'.

    Notice the first sentence in my reply: "No offense, but....."

    Then I went on to explain that there are many different building, fire and life safety codes here in the US, therefore you could receive many different answers. The heartache would have been YOURS as you could have potentially received many different answers.

    THEN I went on to explain how a Design Professional (Fire Protection Engineer, Architect, or equal) is the one who should be determining the answers to these questions, through the adopted codes or standards of your country (if you have any.)

    I was not trying to be oversmart. The very questions you have asked fall under my Job Description as a Code Official/Building Inspector/Plans Examiner/Fire Marshal here in the United States. But since you want to be a Yak's A S S about this, you can take any future questions and stick them up your backside.

    And I never thought I would defend LaFireEducator, but he didn't deserve your dung flinging either.

    Have a nice time building your 5-star hotel there Gunga Din.

    I simply stated that it did not appear that english was your primary language, therefore, you were likley from overseas where our (US) standards would likley not apply.

    You need to contact the government agency responsible for this query in your country for the applicable standards, which quite likely may not be NFPA.

    I have tried to tell him this here and in several other of his threads, but apparently his english isn't good enough for him to understand this.

    Building codes are by state, and sometimes even local.

    There is no national building code. NFPA may have a standard, but most likely it is not applied in many places in this country as the local or state code may have a differing requirement.
