AttentionIFC 2009 CHAPTER 40 The storage and use of oxidizing materials in amounts not exceeding the maximum allowable quantity per control area indicated in Section 2703.1 shall be in accordance with Sections 2701, 2703, 4001 and 4003.Oxidizing gases shall also comply with Chapter 30. CHAPTER 30 SECTION 3007 Compressed gases in storage or use not regulated by the material-specific provisions of Chapters 6, 31, 35 and 37 through 44, including asphyxiant, irritant and radioactive gases, shall comply with this section in addition to other requirements of this chapter. Indoor storage and use areas and storage buildings shall be provided with mechanical exhaust ventila-tion or natural ventilation in accordance with the requirements of Section 2704.3 or 2705.1.9. When mechanical ventilation is provided, the systems shall be operational during such time as the building or space is occupied.
Attention2/13/13 Plan reviewer spoke with Mr. Graver of Pep Boys regarding ventilation Per Plan reviewer: * Section 3007 of the IFC 2009 requires that ventilation be in compliance with this section. * See additional plan comments for ventilation requirements. * This process and submittal is approved pending a deferred submittal by Pep Boys to demonstrate that existing ventilation system is in compliance with the requirements. * Per Pep Boys: PB will contact local HVAC vendor to review current system and documentation of ventilation system. *PB will email Plan reviewer with ventilation information on or before the Hazmat Inspection for this nitrous oxide system storage area. * Information may also be presented to Inspector * Plan reviewer provided existing documentation of ventilation/HVAC system provided via PPRBD Mechanical, Russel Kauk. Also provided Mr. Kauk's # for contact info. *** PEP BOYS to SUBMIT VENTILATION DOCUMENTATION TO CSFD Kay Yeager on or before time of inspection.
AttentionIndoor storage and use areas and storage buildings shall be provided with mechanical exhaust ventilation or natural ventilation in accordance with the requirements of Section 2704.3 or 2705.1.9. When mechanical ventilation is provided, the systems shall be operational during such time as the building or space is occupied. Exhaust ventilation systems shall comply with all of the following: 1. Installation shall be in accordance with the Interna-tional Mechanical Code. 2. Mechanical ventilation shall be at a rate of not less than 1 cubic foot per minute per square foot [0.00508 m3/(s o m2)] of floor area over the storage area. 3. Systems shall operate continuously unless alternative designs are approved. A manual shutoff control shall be provided outside of the room in a position adjacent to the access door to the room or in an approved location. The switch shall be a break-glass or other approved type and shall be labeled: VENTILATION SYSTEM EMERGENCY SHUTOFF. 4. Exhaust ventilation shall be designed to consider the density of the potential fumes or vapors released. For fumes or vapors that are heavier than air, exhaust shall be taken from a point within 12 inches (305 mm) of the floor. For fumes or vapors that are lighter than air, exhaust shall be taken from a point within 12 inches (305 mm) of the highest point of the room. 5. The location of both the exhaust and inlet air openings shall be designed to provide air movement across all portions of the floor or room to prevent the accumulation of vapors. 6. Exhaust air shall not be recirculated to occupied areas if the materials stored are capable of emitting hazardous vapors and contaminants have not been removed. Air contaminated with explosive or flammable vapors, fumes or dusts; flammable, highly toxic or toxic gases; or radioactive materials shall not be recirculated.
AttentionIMC 2009 SECTION 402 Natural Ventilation Natural ventilation of an occupied space shall be through windows, doors, louvers or other openings to the outdoors. The operating mechanism fo such openings shall be provided withready access so that the openings are readily controlable byu the building occupants. The mimum openable area to the outdoors shall be 4 percent of the floor area being ventilated. PLEASE REFER TO PPRBD MECHANICAL DEPT.

FYI3003.2 Design and construction. Compressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks shall be designed, fabricated, tested, marked with the specifications of manufacture and main-tained in accordance with the regulations of DOTn 49 CFR, Parts 100-185 or the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII. Pressure relief devices shall be in accordance with Sections 3003.3.1 through 3003.3.5. Pressure relief devices shall be provided to protect containers, cylinders and tanks contain-ing compressed gases from rupture in the event of over-pressure. Exception: Cylinders, containers and tanks when exempt from the requirements for pressure relief devices specified by the standards of design listed in Section 3003.3.2. Pressure relief devices to protect con-tainers shall be designed and provided in accordance with CGA S-1.1, CGA S-1.2, CGA S-1.3 or the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, as applicable. Pressure relief devices shall be sized in accordance with the specifications to which the container was fabricated and to material specific requirements as ap-plicable. . Pressure relief devices shall be ar-ranged to discharge upward and unobstructed to the open air in such a manner as to prevent any impingement of es-caping gas upon the container, adjacent structures or per-sonnel. Exception: DOTn specification containers having an in-ternal volume of 30 cubic feet (0.855 m3) or less. Stationary and portable compressed gas containers, cylinders, tanks and systems shall be marked in accordance with Sections 3003.4.1 through 3003.4.3.
FYI3003.4.1 Stationary compressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks. Stationary compressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks shall be marked with the name of the gas and in accordance with Sections 2703.5 and 2703.6. Markings shall be visible from any direction of approach. Portable containers, cylinders and tanks. Port-able compressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks shall be marked in accordance with CGA C-7. Compressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks designed for protective caps, collars or other protective devices shall have the caps or devices in place except when the containers, cylinders or tanks are in use or are being serviced or filled. Compressed gas containers, cyl-inders and tanks designed for valve protection caps or other protective devices shall have the caps or devices attached. When outlet caps or plugs are installed, they shall be in place. Open flames and high-temperature devices shall not be used in a manner which creates a hazardous condition. Compressed gas con-tainers, cylinders, tanks and systems shall not be exposed to corrosive chemicals or fumes which could damage con-tainers, cylinders, tanks, valves or valve-protective caps.
AttentionLabeling - An NFPA 704 compliant Hazard Placard is required for each pedestrian entry door rooms containing hazardous materials in excess of the exempt amounts (this door could be interior or exterior) and all such doors shall be included. The minimum size of the Hazard Placard shall be 15" by 15". This requirement is subject to verification at the time of the Hazardous materials Inspection prior to signing the Fire Final.
FYICompressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks shall be separated from each other based on the hazard class of their contents. Compressed gas containers, cylinders and tanks shall be separated from incompatible materials in accordance with Section 2703.9.8. Compressed gas containers, cylinders, tanks and systems shall not be placed in areas where they are capable of being damaged by falling objects. Location. Portable or manifolded cylinders located inside of a building shall be stored in a well ventilated, dry location at least 20 feet (6.1 m) from combustible material and at least 10 feet (3m) from elevators, stairways, cor-ridors, exits or in areas normally used, or intended to be used, as a means of egress.
