  • in reply to: Wood burning cooking appliances #14718

    im assuming this is outdoor? are these appliances listed for cooking? if they are listed, its not much different than say a charcoal bbq, or a wood pellet smoker, they still reach high temps.

    we created a simple excel spreadsheet with all the information provided by the building dept. the list gets updated any time a permit is issued and distributed to our dispatch center and all our senior officers.

    Julien. just because they do not share common exit facilities does not mean 9.5 does not apply, what is the occupant load of the building? more than 10, then 9.5 would apply.

    couple of things that might affect the rating, agreed with Robert that we need to know if 9.5 of the OFC applies, but further to that, does the attic contain any building services? does the other unit have access to the attic? is it being used for storage space? does it need detection?

    most tri-plexes i come across i have found that they have been converted from a single family dwelling at one time without a permit, you may want to considering asking the building dept if there is any history on this building.

    hey steven, email me at [email protected] and i will send you what we have.

    in reply to: Chip Truck Inspections #13697

    We too have a bylaw requiring chip trucks to have a license and part of that license is to have an inspection and written letter of approval from the fire dept. thankfully all of our chip trucks are made non-mobile (wheels removed, connected to at least 2 utilities, or a trailer which is not easily moved) so we apply the fire code requirements to them. we do have a checklist that we usually accompany with our inspection, if your interested I can email it to you

    in reply to: Fire Code Compliance Affidavit #13500

    why give them the option? wouldnt it be in the best interest for both the owner and the municipality to be in there once a year? we dont have any kind of bylaw regulating short tern rentals, just curious why?

    when you say the “red plastic ribbon” are you referring to one to activate the battery?

    in reply to: Sports Complex – Glass Gate system #13201

    first I would think that a building permit is required here because you are altering a means of egress. if they havent yet, i would refer them to the building dept.

    as for door hardware, if they are outward swinging with no need to swipe, then the door hardware wouldnt be an issue. also, they are interconnected with the fire alarm to automatically unlock when the alarm is active?

    next would be the fire safety plan, the plan would have to be altered to show these gates.

    i would verify if there was a permit taken for the installation of these gates first, if they have been installed as they look like they have been, then i would request some for of documentation to show that there can be used here either from an engineer or architect.

    although
