receptacle outlets in Category I, II, and III sunrooms as specified by the Florida Building Code and AAMA


Staff provided a full analysis and the TAC discussed the request taking the following action:


DCA09-DEC-351 by Joseph Belcher, Code Consultant

Admin TAC: Vote: 6/2


Question: In the case of sunrooms attached to single family dwellings, do the provisions of AAMA 2100 related to receptacle outlets prevail?


Answer: Yes. AAMA 2100 is more specific than NFPA 70 with regard to the definition of sunrooms and the placement of receptacle outlets, and therefore in according to Section 102.1 of the FBC, Building, AAMA 2100's provisions prevail over NFPA 70 with regard to the subject in question.
