High-rise buildings (any structure over 75 feet) were not mandated to have fire sprinklers until the s. By the middle of that decade, however, “America Burning” spurred the adoption of the model codes that offered “trade-ups” for adding sprinkler systems into new high-rises; building owners could reduce other, expensive and passive /why-and-how-the-us-retrofits-sprinklers-in-existing-buildings.

When fire sprinklers are being installed in a high-rise facility, the first step is to consider the available water supply. The Quincy, MA-based National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) defines a high-rise as a structure that measures more than 75 feet in height (translating to 7 stories or higher).

High-Rise Retrofit Schedule – IFC M The IFC has a high-rise retrofit requirement in Appendix M. It becomes an IFC requirement only when specifically adopted, but is similar to NFPA ’s year schedule for Sprinklers in high-rise buildings book.
