are these maglocks to keep the doors open or closed, if its in the closed position i would look at 18.104.22.168(4)(c) “(c) the locking device releases immediately upon loss of power to the fire alarm control panel or loss of power controlling the electromagnetic locking mechanism and its associated auxiliary controls,” my interpretation is that if the building itself looses power, then the maglocks would have to release.
thanks Alana. funny if you go into the latest OBC appendix, it doesnt include that anymore.
update: if anyone has access to NFPA 101. in the appendix. A.22.214.171.124.(2) states that a smoke alarm should be no further than 21ft from any bedroom door.
good afternoon. so a brief follow up, basically in our case a probation order isnt worth the paper its written on, a person can only be charged for a breach while currently on probation, once the order expires they are released of any obligations under the probation order. We ended up having to charge the individual again with separate fire code offences, instead of a fail to comply charge. under section 32 of the FPPA we have the ability for a compliance order, which is what we should have done instead. long story short we have had to restart the entire process once again with this individual, normally one would think that after being found guilty and fined for a fail to comply that person would have had the work completed, but its been almost a year since the guilty verdict and no work has been completed.
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@example.com and i will send you what we have.
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
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?January 11, 2021 at 12:59 pm in reply to: Kiddie 3 in 1 Smoke/Co Strobes & Red Plastic Ribbon Seals #13234
when you say the “red plastic ribbon” are you referring to one to activate the battery?
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.
youtube has quite a few of them
