    I have an occupancy in my city that was converted from a Menards (home improvement) to a small manufacturing plant for a specific product line. Besides dividing the floor into separate assembly lines the main area has not been partitioned.

    Was looking for direction in either NFPA72 or the IFC to determine at what point they need to increase the height of their strobes. Thank you for your assistance.

    At the time the conversion was made, the fire alarm system should have been evaluated for compliance at that time....
