2015 IBC and IFC Questions

Recommended Posts

Our local fire marshal just told us that barrel storage is not excluded from the 2015 IBC, only from the 2015 IFC. Is this correct?

Yes.   The “barrel” exemption is only in one code, not both.  When you take both codes into consideration the barreled quantities count toward you maq’s.

Don't know about the specific dates but in the current regs fire is exempt but building is not and the toughest test is what you have to meet.  The link provided does a pretty good job of explaining.

As bluefish says, the barrels count toward your MAQ.  If you are shooting for F-1, you are limited to 120 gallons un-sprinkled and 240 sprinkled.  Beyond that you classified as hazardous.

Another good explanation is from Scott Moore of Dalkita.  It's about an hour long
