1 Florida Specific Amendment Code Reference NFPA 101 Open Parking Structure. A parking structure that, at each parking level, has wall openings open to the atmosphere, for an area of not less than 1.4 ft2 for each linear foot (0.4 m2 for each linear meter) of its exterior perimeter. Such openings are distributed over at least 40 percent of the building perimeter or uniformly over two opposing sides. Interior wall lines and column lines are at least 20 percent open, with openings distributed to provide ventilation. (1) A structure used for the parking or storage of motor vehicles that have: (a) at least 50% of the clear height between floors shall be open to the atmosphere for the full length of at least two exterior walls, excluding required stair and elevator walls and structural columns. Interior wall lines and column lines shall be at least 20% open and uniformly distributed or, (b) the exterior walls of the structure shall have uniformly distributed openings on (2009 two or more sides totaling no less than 40% of the building perimeter. The area of ed.) such openings in the exterior walls on each level shall be at least 20% of the total (2012 perimeter wall area of each level. Interior wall lines and column lines shall be at ed.) least 20% open and uniformly distributed. (2) The distance from any point on any floor level to an open exterior wall facing on a street, or to other permanently maintained open space at least 20ft (6096mm) wide extending full width to a street shall not exceed 200ft (61m). (3) Garages within 10 ft (3048mm) of a common property or building line shall be provided with an enclosure wall along the line of not less than 1-hour fire resistance without openings therein, except door openings meeting the requirements of shall be permitted. Reason for Amendment (Statute, Rule, FBC, Industry) FBC 406.3, see also FBC Disposition removing - new 2013 FBC is consistent with 2012 NFPA 101, SERC Y/N FBC current language is similar to NFPA 101 base code; renumbered to 101: refers to 101: which uses NFPA 88A: definition language. FBC (2013 ed) states Openings. For natural ventilation purposes, the exterior side of the structure shall have uniformly distributed openings on two or more sides. The area of such openings in exterior walls on a tier shall be not less than 20 percent of the total perimeter wall area of each tier. The aggregate length of the openings considered to be providing natural ventilation shall be not less than 40 percent of the perimeter of the tier. Interior walls shall be not less than 20 percent open with uniformly distributed openings. Exception: Openings are not required to be distributed over 40 percent of the building perimeter where the required openings are uniformly distributed over two opposing sides of the building. (2) 200 ft came from NFPA 88A; (3) 1 hr separation came from FBC; Section Area and height increases. The allowable area and height of open parking garages shall be increased in accordance with the provision of this seciton. Garages with sides open on three-fourths of the building's perimeter are permitted to be increased by 25% in area and one tier in height. Garages with sides open around the entire building's perimeter are permitted to be increased by 50% in area and one tier in height. For a side to be considered open under the above provisions, the total area of openings along the side shall not be less than 50% of the interior area of the side at each tier and such openings shall be equally distributed along the length of the tier.
