I had a discussion with other peers about the hazard classification of nail salons (not a hair salon in this case).
Peer 1 argued for OH2. It's semi-mercantile, typically behind the front desk they sell beauty care products of moderate flammability.
Peer 2 argued for OH1. It's not mercantile like we're used to; it's not aisles, it's a couple of cabinets by a front desk in the majority of cases. But the chemical storage in those beauty products to him says he can't go all the way light hazard even with mostly open floor space.
Peer 3 argued for Light Hazard. This is no different from a doctor's office. They have cabinetry, they have equipment, they have flammable chemicals (alcohol at the very least). Plus he'd really like to be able to use CPVC pipe for the light hazard occupancy to save money.
I see the argument for all three, so I figured I'd offer it to more peers. See where folks land on this. Thanks in advance.
