proposals in the IBC/IFC code
development process would affect
membrane structures:
* Inlatable or portable enclosure prohibition
for spray application processes.
This proposal is intended to
prohibit the use of such enclosures
unless in compliance with NFPA 33.
This is the standard for all spray application
uses/processes. There is
a revision requested in NFPA 33 to
address inlatable or portable enclosures,
so IFAI has requested that
this proposal be revised to request
compliance with NFPA 33 only without
the initial prohibition. Codes
are generally written in this manner,
and IFAI is requesting support
from the proponent of this proposal
as well.
* New deinition of Inlatable Amusement
Device and referenced ASTM standard.
New criteria are proposed in
the IFC to address in more detail the
use and testing of inlatable amusement
devices. ASTM E2374-19 is
proposed as the new standard. It is
important to note that installations
on private property are exempt from
this regulation.
Awnings: IFAI submitted a proposal
to the IBC similar to the tent proposal to
refer to the State of California regulations
for the testing of tent fabrics. This also
didn't get a positive recommendation
from the committee because the
California State Fire Marshal is looking
to revise the statutory requirements in
the near future.
IFAI also submitted a proposal to
Appendix D Fire Districts in the ICC
codes regarding the testing of canopy
fabrics to eliminate the accelerated
weathering and water leaching prior to
the NFPA 701 tests being conducted. It
44 intents oct-nov 2021
has been brought to our attention that
there are very few testing agencies that
either can or will conduct such tests on
large samples.
