We're designing a fire sprinkler system for plastic (Group A material, unexpanded polyethylene) recycling site. We are designing only for the depot area. There are raw materials stored as solid blocks up to ...We've raw material stored as solid blocks up to 12 feet (3.6 meters).
I am thinking this should be considered rack storage under NFPA 13 Section 220.127.116.11 (2016 Edition) for Protection Criteria for Rack Storage of Class I Through Class IV Commodities Stored Up to 12-ft (3.7m) in Height.
Am I wrong considering this? Note that compacted material will have a lower combustion propagation velocity than generic goods. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
