In original submittal those where Duct Detectors but we found out we had nowhere to mount the duct detectors. The Heat and Smoke Detector are on top of the shaft since there is a sprinkler head in there. We know we can't shunt trip but with the sprinkler head in there the Heat and Smoke Detector were added.
