Understanding the Complexities of UL300 Fire Systems in Commercial Hoods

DATE: September 18-20, 2019
LOCATION: Moses Lake Fire, 701 E Third Avenue, Moses Lake, WA 98837

The Washington State Association of Fire Marshals is hosting the Badger/Kidde factory Pre-Engineering training program addresses all of the necessary product-specific equipment service details, as well as service manuals, product literature, bulletins and other materials necessary for compliances with various codes and NFPA (i.e., NFPA 10, NFPA 17, NFPA 17 A, NFPA 70, NFPA 72 and NFPA 96) requirements. 

Beyond reviewing the necessary NFPA service related requirements, this class covers essential service, installation, and maintenance requirements required by the manual and NFPA. Additionally, the class provides Hands-On training that will provide proper installation, service, and maintenance. We will walk through how to service and install pieces of equipment and learn some hints passed along the way by other technicians.

The target audience for this class is individuals responsible for plan review or confidence testing of new and existing Type One Commercial Rangehoods and UL 300 Fire Systems. The class will focus on plan review and onsite inspections of Type One Hoods and UL 300 Fire Systems. We will discuss the importance of a thorough plan review and how to inspect the system when certifying the systems for compliance. We will discuss in depth what is UL 300 and how it relates to the International Building Code, International Fire Code, NFPA, and the listing requirements per the manufacturers. 

Upon completion, participants will be better able to complete a thorough plan review and have confidence when certifying the systems.

Class will start at 08:00hrs and ICC credit will be given.

Upcoming Events

Announcement Regarding Marijuana Extraction Facilities

 

The State Building Code Council (SBCC) has adopted emergency rules regarding marijuana extraction facilities. The emergency rule went into effect on July 1, 2015. 

This new rule establishes specific requirements for the handling of hazardous materials, establishes inspection standards and provides construction and permit requirements to ensure life/safety for occupants, first responders and the public. 

I encourage you to have your fire prevention officer or other applicable staff review the regulations which apply to both new and existing facilities. 

The specific regulations can be viewed by going to the SBCC website
