2 101-5 Log #11 SAF-DET Technical Correlating Committee on Safety to Life, Make any needed editorial changes to assure that the moved and renumbered text is correlated with the remainder of the chapter. The action taken at the ROP stage by SAF-HEA will provide correlation among occupancy chapters, but may need to be correlated within each occupancy chapter. No further action required. The editorial reformatting made at the ROP stage is an improvement. No new problems were introduced and nothing got lost. 1

3 Log #57 SAF-DET Marcelo M. Hirschler, GBH International Revise text to read as follows: ASTM Publications. ASTM International, 100 Barr Harbor Drive, P.O.

ASTM standards update, per ASTM web site August The commenter requests that NFPA staff checks the most recent editions at the time of the code going to print. Make the changes requested by the submitter. Additionally, update the edition date of ASTM E 119 from 2009c to 2010b. The action does what the submitter requested and also further updates the ASTM E 119 publication date to reflect the edition current at the time of the committee's ROC meeting. Further, SAF-DET notes that the submitter's request that further updates be made prior to publication of NFPA cannot be honored. The ASTM publication dates - as shown in the Recommendation field, and as approved by SAF-DET at its ROC meeting - is as far as NFPA can go with updating the publication dates. 2

4 Log #27 SAF-DET Technical Correlating Committee on Safety to Life, c Review the TC s occupancy chapter provisions applicable to smoke barriers and, if it is the TC s desire, revise text so as to specifically exempt latching in the appropriate locations. The occupancy chapters might need to be correlated with the change made to See Comment a (Log #CC700). The referenced comment makes changes to and to preserve the status quo relative to the latching of sliding doors in smoke barriers in detention and correctional occupancies a Log #CC700 SAF-DET Technical Committee on Detention and Correctional Occupancies, c Revise as follows: Doors in smoke barriers shall be as follows: (1) The doors shall provide resistance to the passage of smoke. (2) Swinging doors shall be self-latching, or the opening resistance of the door shall be not less than 5 lbf (22 N). (3) Sliding doors shall be exempt from the latching requirement of Doors in smoke barriers shall be as follows: (1) The doors shall provide resistance to the passage of smoke. (2) Swinging doors shall be self-latching, or the opening resistance of the door shall be not less than 5 lbf (22 N). (3) Sliding doors shall be exempt from the latching requirement of (4) The Such doors shall not be required to swing in the direction of egress travel. ROP Proposal c revised the Section 8.5 provisions for smoke barriers so as to require smoke barrier doors to latch unless exempted by another provision of the Code. The text shown in the recommendation field adds item (3) to preserve the current requirement that sliding doors need not be latching. The other changes made are editorial reformatting for compliance with the Manual of Style by not having multiple requirements in one paragraph. 3

5 Log #75 SAF-DET Marcelo M. Hirschler, GBH International / Rep. American Fire Safety Council Revise text to read as follows: Combustible decorations shall be prohibited in any detention or correctional occupancy unless flame retardant one of the following criteria is met: (1)* The decorations are considered by the authority having jurisdiction to exhibit acceptable fire performance (2) The decorations meet the requirements of NFPA 701, Standard Methods of Fire Tests for Flame Propagation of Textiles and Films (3) The decorations exhibit a heat release rate not exceeding 100 kw when tested in accordance with NFPA 289, Standard Method of Fire Test for Individual Fuel Packages, using the 20 kw ignition source (4) The decorations are present in such limited quantities that a hazard of fire development or spread is minimal. It is important that combustible decorations exhibit adequate fire performance. The requirement that a decoration be flame retardant is not enforceable as such. However, the AHJ may be able to make a judgment of adequate fire performance without requiring testing of the decoration. The AHJ may also require a fire test method different from NFPA 701 or NFPA 289, as some decorations may not be effectively tested by NFPA 701. Examples of approaches that can be taken by the AHJ include information on the composition of the decoration or evidence of its treatment with fire retardants or coatings. This comment understands the opinion of the technical committee that it may not always be possible or necessary to conduct fire tests and that the AHJ needs to be given the option of accepting a decoration without testing. The replacement of the phrase flame retardant by the recommended phrase accomplishes the committee s intent while avoiding the use of an unenforceable requirement. The annex note clarifies without introducing new requirements. The submitter's proposed items (1) and (4) will make it more difficult for the AHJ to enforce the provision. "Fire performance" includes many more considerations than a judgment related to the current requirement for "flame retardancy." Fire performance considerations involve all the material's characteristics that relate to fire. The committee refers the submitter to its Committee Statement for the rejection of ROP Proposal : decorations are typically quite minimal in detention and correctional occupancies; judgment of "flame retardancy" is being done effectively by the AHJ without the need for specific testing; the current text affords the AHJ needed leeway Log #CC3 SAF-DET Technical Committee on Fundamentals, Revise text of footnote c as follows: Any building of Type I, Type II(222), or Type II(111) construction is permitted to include roofing systems involving combustible or steel supports, decking, or roofing, provided that all of the following are met: (1) The roof covering meets not less than Class C requirements in accordance with NFPA 256, ASTM E 108,, or ANSI/UL 790,. (2) The roof is separated from all occupied portions of the building by a noncombustible floor assembly that includes not less than 2½ in. (64 mm) of concrete or gypsum fill, and the attic or other space so developed meets one of the following requirements: (a) It is unoccupied. (b) It is protected throughout by an approved automatic sprinkler system. NFPA 256 was withdrawn and is no longer published. ASTM E 108 and ANSI/UL 790 are the applicable test standards. 4

6 Log #149c SAF-DET Robert J. Davidson, Davidson Code Concepts, LLC Keying on the current language in and for existing wired glass installations, revise as follows for clarification: Notes: (1) Doors in openings in partitions required to be fire rated (FR) in accordance with Table , in other than required enclosures of exits or hazardous areas, are required to be substantial doors of construction that resists fire for a minimum of 20 minutes. Vision panels with existing installations of wired glass or glass with not less than 45-minute fire-rated glazing are permitted. Latches and door closers are not required on cell doors. In response to the Committee Statement the following changes were made to the proposal. The sections relating to existing installations are proposed to be modified by adding language clarifying that application of these sections is limited to existing wired glass installations and not intened to allow new installations. The language proposed for addition was obtained by review of existing language found at sections subsection (2) and subsection (4)(c) included below. This proposal will provide for improved correlation of various sections relating to existing installations of wired glass.. An exit passageway shall be separated from other parts of the building as specified in , and the following alternatives shall be permitted: (1) Fire windows in accordance with shall be permitted to be installed in the separation in a building protected throughout by an approved, supervised automatic sprinkler system in accordance with Section 9.7. (2) fixed wired glass panels in steel sash shall be permitted to be in the separation in buildings protected throughout by an approved, supervised automatic sprinkler system in accordance with Section Any vertical opening shall be enclosed or protected in accordance with Section 8.6, unless otherwise permitted by the following: (1)* Stairs or ramps shall be permitted to be unenclosed between balconies or mezzanines and main assembly areas located below, provided that the balcony or mezzanine is open to the main assembly area. (2) Exit access stairs from lighting and access catwalks, galleries, and gridirons shall not be required to be enclosed. (3) Assembly occupancies protected by an approved, supervised automatic sprinkler system in accordance with Section 9.7 shall be permitted to have unprotected vertical openings in accordance with (4) Use of the following alternative materials shall be permitted where assemblies constructed of such materials are in good repair and free of any condition that would diminish their original fire resistance characteristics: (a) Existing wood lath and plaster (b) Existing 1/2 in. (13 mm) gypsum wallboard (c) of ¼ in. (6.3 mm) thick wired glass that are, or are rendered, inoperative and fixed in the closed position (d) Other existing materials having similar fire resistance capabilities The building codes permit new wired glass to be installed in new construction in areas where safety glass is not required. The submitter has not justified why the Code should not be more stringent where wired glass is to be installed in an existing frame. 5
