Subject: When is non-water fire suppression required in a chemical
In-Reply-To: <DCHAS-L%201107010000340731.000D**At_Symbol_Here**LIST.UVM.EDU>
We are in the design phase of creating a new, modest-size chemical
stockroom, which is considered an occupied space.  Is it current
standard to have fire suppression that uses a non-aqueous agent?  Does
it depend on what chemicals are present?  It will definitely house
general organics, acids and flammables.  Is there a prevailing design
philosophy I can present to the decision-makers?
