August 19, 2014 – Protecting Storage of Exposed Plastics by Kenneth E. Isman, P.E.

For many years, NFPA 13 has had criteria for protecting some arrangements of exposed plastics, but not for all storage heights and types of storage. In the 2013 edition, new criteria was added for protection of rack storage of exposed unexpanded plastics. For the 2016 edition of the standard, criteria for protecting exposed expanded plastics stored on racks is being discussed based on some new successful full-scale fire tests. This presentation will summarize the requirements as they stand now and provide a preview of the requirements likely to be in the 2016 edition of the standard.
