A portion of a home-improvement store has K11.2 ceiling-only sprinkler protection above double row racks. The owner is looking to store bagged charcoal (without any impregnated ignition fluid or plastic wrap) atop reinforced plastic pallets in this area. What would the commodity classification be for this arrangement if no plastics are intermixed?
a. Class II
b. Class III
c. Class IV
d. Group A Plastic
Solution | Posted 07/14/20
d. Group A Plastic. Bagged Charcoal (non-mineral spirit impregnated) is an example of Class III commodity (NFPA 13-2016 Table A.5.6.3), but must move up two commodity classifications due to the presence of reinforced plastic pallets (NFPA 13-2016 Section 188.8.131.52).
