General Storage Requirements

Louis Guerrazzi, EIT

When a building is protecting high piled storage, whether it be a project with solid piled Class II Commodities or Group A Plastics stored on racks, Chapter 12 of the 2016 edition of NFPA 13 will provide the general requirements for the installation. This seminar will highlight the requirements applicable to all storage arrangements and commodity classifications with standardized protection criteria in NFPA 13.  Topics include applications, discharge considerations, design methods and protection of idle pallets.

Miscellaneous and Low-Piled Storage

Roland Asp, CET and Louis Guerrazzi, EIT

 

When is storage not treated as storage?  When it meets the definition of miscellaneous or low-piled storage. Typically, the requirements of NFPA 13 for the protection of storage are distinct from the occupancy or hazard class requirements of the standard. Miscellaneous and low-piled storage is the exception.

 

These specific storage arrangements are protected by the rules found in Chapter 13, which typically reference the occupancy rules and not the storage rules within NFPA 13. This program will show how the provisions of this chapter combine with both the occupancy hazard classification rules and the rules for protection of high-piled storage involving commodity classification.  It will also focus on these specific storage arrangements and the protection rules found in Chapter 13, Protection of Miscellaneous and Low-Piled Storage. This presentation will discuss situations where the application of the rules found within Chapter 13 are appropriate and what that application entails.

Protecting Palletized and Solid-Piled Class I-IV and Group A

Robert Upson, MS FPE

When many people think of storage, often the first thing they think of is rack storage. This seminar will highlight the other storage configurations – palletized, solid-piled, bin box, shelf, or back-to-back shelf storage. It will focus on NFPA 13, 2016 edition, Chapter 14, Chapter 15, and some of their unique sprinkler protection requirements and challenges.  High challenge fires of these storage arrangements require attention to the details of protecting them properly. (WI# 18128  1.5 Hrs)

Protecting Rack Storage for Class I-IV

Victoria B. Valentine, PE

Rack storage is definitely a high challenge fire scenario.  There are many options presented in NFPA 13 for protecting racks.  Different ceiling sprinklers, sprinkler inside the racks, variations in configurations including aisle width will all result in different sprinkler locations and demands.  This lesson will review the many standardized options available when protecting Class I through Class IV commodities. (WI# 18127  1.5 Hrs)

Protecting Rack Storage of Group A Plastics

Roland Asp, CET

The storage of Group A plastic on racks is one of the most challenging fire situations that fire sprinklers can experience. These storage arrangements can promote a severe fire condition which may include a rapid spread of fire with a high rate of heat release.  Chapter 17 in NFPA 13 titled “Protection of Rack Storage of Plastic and Rubber Commodities” spells out the acceptable protection options for this extreme fire risk. Chapter 17 gives the layout technician many options including the use of Standard Spray Sprinklers (CMDA), Control Mode Specific Application sprinklers (CMSA), Early Suppression Fast Response sprinklers (ESFR) and in-rack sprinklers.

 

This presentation will outline the different acceptable protection criteria and options found in Chapter 17. A thorough understanding of the requirements of this chapter will help the layout technician to choose the most appropriate protection for this challenging storage arrangement.

Inspecting Storage Occupancies

Jason Webb

Storage occupancies have long been segregated from other occupancy hazards for planning their protection scheme.  Once a system is in place, it is important that the system is inspected, maintained, and tested over its lifetime.  This lesson will review the nuances of inspecting storage occupancies in accordance with NFPA 25.
