OP3 Protection of Adjacent Buildings from Fire



Intent 1:

To exempt open-air storage garages from the requirements of Sentences, , and (2), which would otherwise limit the area of unprotected openings, and permit unlimited unprotected openings, on the basis that the fire load of the contents is relatively low, the space is well ventilated and the limiting distance is not less than 3 m. These conditions are to limit the probability of the spread of fire from the garage to an adjacent building, which could lead to damage to adjacent buildings.
