FirePE | Fire Protection Engineering & Code Consulting

Services | High Piled Storage

FirePE will relieve the burden of the fire code and fire protection requirements from you and your staff and provide a clear direction for code compliance and/or alternative acceptable solutions.

All available options and alternatives will be provided, discussed and resolved to allow for the best solution to meet your warehouse needs. Provide us with your specific requirements or limits of your building and we will do the rest.

We will coordinate with your racking contractor, fire sprinkler contractor and the Authority Having Jurisdiction in order to accomplish this task.

Services include:

  • Commodity Classification

Through a survey of your products, we will be able to establish the commodity classification as outlined in the applicable fire codes, NFPA 13 and FM Global datasheets. This will allow us to lay the basis of design for the proper protection of your commodities being stored.

  • Hazardous Material Classification and Review

We will review the Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS) provided by our clients to determine the hazard classification of each chemical. After the chemical classifications have been determined and the desired quantities have been allocated, we are then able to provide our clients with the appropriate storage conditions and options as allowed for by the applicable building code and fire code.

  • Preliminary and Final Plan Review

On your behalf, we will conduct extensive code research for your particular situation and provide you with our review and analysis of the applicable code requirements for your project.

  • Technical Reports

We will provide our clients and the authorities having jurisdiction with technical opinion reports based on applicable codes, fire protection engineering analyses and other nationally recognized codes/standards. The report will be prepared to address all issues related to the client's needs.
