Building owner is looking to lease some warehouse space for the storage of hand sanitizer…looking at the MSDS, I see it listed as a Class IB flammable.
Going to NFPA 30 and seeing section 188.8.131.52 would be the most appropriate…which then flips me to section 16.6.1 Scheme A as the Sprinkler arrangement.
I have to look to see what design densities are needed for the ceiling spray heads and the in-racks.
Is this the correct approach? Is NFPA 30 applicable here? Just wanted to make sure I’m not missing something.
