Racking Height

Unread post by Mc Safe » 15 Oct 2015, 15:48

Hi there.

What is the maximum allowable height of racking/shelving before one needs to install a sprinkler system?

In other words, what is the highest that are allowed to pack our shelves in the warehouse without a sprinkler system?

If you can include an article or advise as to where i can find this information then that would be great.

Thank you.

Hi there

I am not an expert in this particular field.

It would be normally addressed stipulated by National Building Regulations (Part T1) as well as a relevant SANS code.

Maybe one of the other users could assisst in this regard.
