shall apply to both new and existing occupancies. 

EXCEPTION: 

(1) Buildings controlled by the Federal Government, provided they are 
not subject to the provisions of Section 15452, Education Code. 

(2) Homes and institutions and day care facilities which provide non- 
medical board, room, and care for 6 or fewer ambulatory children. 

These regulations shall also apply to any building housing any occu- 
pancy when such building is used as an auxiliary or accessory structure 
to any of the occupancies specified herein. They do not apply to structural 
requirements not relating to fire and panic safety nor to matters dealing 
exclusively with health and sanitation. 



(b) In accordance with Section 1 3 108 of the Health and Safety Code, 
these regulafions shall govern the design and construction relating to fire 
protection in any state institution and in any state-owned or state-occu- 
pied building. 

For purposes of these regulations, "state-occupied buildings" are de- 
fined as those portions of a building which are leased or rented by the 
state and shall include all required exits leading therefrom to a public

by the stale shall not fall within the scope of this subsection unless such 
portions present an exposure hazard to the state-occupied area. 

(c) These regulations shall also govern the use and maintenance of "or- 
ganized camps" as defined in Section 18897, Health and Safety Code. 

(d) These regulations shall also govern the use and maintenance of any 
building or structure used or intended for the housing of any person of 
any age when such person is referred to or placed within such home or 
facility for protective social care and supervision services by any govern- 
mental agency. 

(e) These regulations shall also govern the construction, use and main- 
tenance of every building of any type of construction or occupancy hav- 
ing floors used for human occupancy located more than 75 feet above the 
lowest floor level having building access. 

For the purpose of this subsection, "building access" shall mean an ex- 
terior door opening conforming to all of the following: 

(1) Suitable and available for fire department use. 

(2) Located not more than 2 feet above the adjacent ground level. 

(3) Leading to a space, room or area having foot traffic communication 
capabilifies with the remainder of the building. 

(4) Designed to permit penetration through the use of fire department 
forcible entry tools and equipment unless other approved arrangements 
have been made with the fire authority having jurisdiction. 

(f) These regulations shall also apply to vehicles, ships and boats or 
other mobile structures when fixed in a specific location and used for any 
occupancy within the scope of this section.

and panic safety standards and are predicated on the basis that the area, 
height and fire-resistive qualities of buildings housing the various type 
occupancies regulated herein are substantially consistent with the fire, 
explosion and panic safety provisions of nationally recognized stan- 
dards. When the area, height, fire-resistive qualities, and arrangement of 
exits of a building do not conform to these regulations for the occupancy 
in question, additional exit facilities, fire separations, and fire extinguish- 
ing systems as are deemed necessary by the inspection authority, shall be 
provided to afford a degree of safety to the occupants of the building sub- 
stantially equivalent to these regulations.

§1.05. Supervision. 

(a) Every occupancy within the scope of these regulations shall be 
staffed with competent adult persons who shall give an alarm in the event 
of fire, assist the occupants of the building to safety and take other action 
as necessary. 

(b) When any child in a R-2.2. 1 Occupancy is 1 2 years of age or less

rectification is being carried out. The inspecUon authority may require 
immediate compliance with any or all of the regulations, or he may grant 
a reasonable length of time in which to conform.

§ 564. Metric Units. 

Metric units of measurement in this standard are in accordance with 
the modernized metric system known as the International System of 
Units (SI). One unit (liter), outside of but recogi\ized by SI, is commonly 
used in international fire protection. The units are listed in Table 1 with 
conversion factors. 

Table 1 

Conversion Factor 

1 gal = 3.785 L 

1 in. = 2.540 cm 

1 ft. = 0.305 m 

1 pound (mass) = 0.454 kg 

5/9(OF-32) = oC 

1 psi = 0.0689 bar 

For additional conversions and information see ASTM E380, Stan- 
dard for Metric Practice. 

If a value for measurement as given in this standard is followed by an 
equivalent value in other units, the first stated is to be regarded as the re- 
quirement. A given equivalent value may be approximate. 

The conversion procedure for the SI units has been to multiply the 
quantity by the conversion factor and then round the result to the appro- 
priate number of significant digits.

Article 5. Selection and Distribution of 
Portable Fire Extinguishers 

§ 565. Selection of Fire Extinguishers. 

(a) The selection of extinguishers for a given situation shall be deter- 
mined by the authority having jurisdiction in accordance with adopted 
codes or ordinances. The character of the fires anticipated, the construc- 
tion and occupancy of the individual property, the vehicle or hazard to 
be protected, ambient-temperature conditions, and other factors shall be 
considered. The number, size, placement, and limitations of use of extin- 
guishers required shall be determined by using Sections 567 through 573.

§ 565.1 . Classification of Hazards. 

(a) Light (low) Hazard. Locations where the total amounts of Class A 
combustible materials, including furnishings, decorations and contents, 



is of minor quantity. These shall include buildings or rooms occupied as 
offices, classrooms, churches, assembly halls, etc. This classification an- 
ticipates that the majority of contents are either noncombustible or so ar- 
ranged that a fire is not likely to spread rapidly. Small amounts of Class 
B flammables used for duplicating machines, art departments, etc., are 
included provided that they are kept in closed containers and safely 
stored. 

(b) Ordinary (Moderate) Hazard. Locations where the total amounts 
of Class combustibles and Class B flammables are present in greater 
amounts than expected under Light (Low) Hazard occupancies. These 
occupancies could consist of offices, classrooms, inercantile shops and 
allied storage, light manufacturing, research operations, auto show- 
rooms, parking garages, workshop or support service areas of Light 
(Low) Hazard occupancies, and warehouses containing Class I or Class 
II commodities. 

(c) Extra (High) Hazard. Locations where the total amount of Class A 
combustibles and Class B flammables are present, in storage, production 
use, and/or finished product over and above those expected and classed 
as ordinary (moderate) hazards. Tliese occupancies could consist of 
woodworking, vehicle repair, aircraft and boat servicing, individual 
product display showrooms, product convention center displays, storage 
and manufacturing processes such as painting, dipping, coating, includ- 
ing flammable liquid handling. Also included is warehousing of, or in- 
process storage of other Class I and Class II commodities.

§ 565.2. Selection by Hazard. 

(a) Extinguishers shall be selected for the specific class or classes of 
hazards to be protected in accordance with the following subdivisions. 

(b) Extinguishers for protecting Class A hazards shall be selected from 
the following: Water-type, halogenated agent types, multipurpose dry 
chemical and wet chemical type. 

(c) Extinguishers for protection of Class B hazards shall be selected 
from the following: carbon dioxide, dry chemical types, halogenated 
agent types, and water-type and water chemical extinguishers rated for 
Class B hazards. 

(d) Extinguishers for protection of Class C hazards shall be selected 
from the following: carbon dioxide, dry chemical types, halogenated 
agent types, and water mist types rated for Class C. Carbon dioxide extin- 
guishers equipped with metal horns are not considered safe for use on 
fires in energized electrical equipment and, therefore, are not classified 
for use on Class C hazards. 

(e) Extinguishers and extinguishing agents for the protection of Class 
D hazards shall be of types approved for use on the specific combustible- 
metal hazard.

§ 566. Application for Specific Hazards. 

(a) Class B Fire Extinguishers for Pressurized Flammable Liquids and 
Pressurized Gas Fires. Fires of this nature are considered to be a special 
hazard. Class B fire extinguishers containing agents other than dry chem- 
ical are relatively ineffective on this type of hazard due to stream and 
agent characteristics. Selection of extinguishers for this type of hazard 
shall be made on the basis of recommendations by manufacturers of this 
specialized equipment. The system used to rate extinguishers on Class B 
fires (flammable liquids in depth) is not applicable to these types of haz- 
ards.

§ S67.4 



• 






It has been determined that special nozzle design and rates of agent 
application are required to cope with such hazards. Caution: It is undesir- 
able to attempt to extinguish this type of fire unless there is reasonable 
assurance that the source of fuel can be promptly shut off. 

(b) Fire extinguishers provided for the protection of cooking ap- 
pliances that use combustible cooking media (vegetable or animal oils 
and fats) shall be listed and labeled for Class K fires. 

(c) Three-dimensional Class B Fires. A three-dimensional Class B 
fire involves Class B materials in motion such as pouring, amning or 
dripping flammable liquids and generally includes vertical as well as one 
or more horizontal surfaces. Fires of this nature are considered to be a 
special hazard. Selection of extinguishers for this type of hazard shall be 
made on the basis of recommendations by manufacturers of this special- 
ized equipment. The system used to rate extinguishers on Class B fires 
(flammable liquids in depth) is not directly applicable to this type of haz- 
ard. 

(d) Water Soluble Flammable Liquid Fires (Polar Solvents). Extin- 
guishers used for the protection of water soluble flammable Hquids, such 
as alcohols, acetones, esters, ketones, etc., shall be selected in accordance 
with Section 565.2. AFFF type and FFFP type fire extinguishers shall not 
be used for the protection of water soluble flammable liquids, such as al- 
cohols, acetone, esters, ketones, etc., unless specifically referenced on 
the extinguisher nameplate. 

(e) Electronic Equipment Fires. Extinguishers for the protection of 
delicate electronic equipment shall be selected from the following: car- 
bon dioxide type or a halogenated agent type, or a distilled water mist 
type with a minimum Class A: C Rating. 

(f) In patient care areas and sleeping rooms of health care facilities, fire 
extinguishers, including the agents and expelling means, should be se- 
lected and utilized which would not be detrimental to patients and are ap- 
propriate for the type of fire expected, such as distilled water mist type 
fire extinguishers with a minimum "2-A: C" Rating.

§ 567. Distribution of Fire Extinguishers. 

(a) The minimum number of fire extinguishers needed to protect a 
propevty shall be determined as outlined in this section. Additional extin- 
guishers may be installed to provide more suitable protection. 

(b) Fire extinguishers shall be provided for the protection of both the 
building structure and the occupancy hazards contained therein. 

(c) Required building protection shall be provided by fire extinguish- 
ers suitable for Class A fires. 

(d) Occupancy hazard protection shall be provided by fire extinguish- 
ers suitable for such Class A, B, C, D, or K fire potentials as may be pres- 
ent. 

(e) Extinguishers provided for building protection may be considered 
also for the protection of occupancies having a Class A fire potenfial. 

(f) Buildings having an occupancy hazard subject to Class B and/or 
Class C fires shall have a standard complement of Class A fire extin- 
guishers for building protection, plus additional Class B and/or Class C 
extinguishers. Where fire exfinguishers have more than one letter classi- 
fication (such as 2-A:20-B:C), they may be considered to safisfy the re- 
quirements of each letter class. When using multi-purpose exfinguishers 
for the protection of Class B hazards, the maximum travel distances de- 
scribed in Table 2 must be observed. 

(g) Rooms or areas shall be classified generally as light (low) hazard, 
ordinary (moderate) hazard, or extra (high) hazard. Limited areas of 
greater or lesser hazard shall be protected as required. 



(h) On each floor level, the area protected and the travel distances shall 
be based on fire extinguishers installed in accordance with Tables 2 and 
3. 

(i) Fire extinguishers shall not be obstructed or obscured from view. 

Exception. In large rooms, and in certain locations where visual obstruction can- 
not be completely avoided, means shall be provided to indicate the fire extinguish- 
er's location. 

(j) Fire exfinguishers shall be conspicuously located along normal 
paths of travel where they will be readily accessible and immediately 
available in the event of a fire. 

(k) Where wheeled extinguishers are installed, aisles and doorways 
through which such exfinguishers are to be moved shall have a clear and 
unobstructed width not less than one foot (1 ft.) wider than the overall 
width of the exfinguisher.

Fires in Flammable Liquids of Appreciable 
Depth. 

(a) Portable fire extinguishers shall not be installed as the sole protec- 
tion for flammable liquid hazards of appreciable depth [greater than 1/4 
in. (0.64 cm)] where the surface area exceeds 10 sq. ft. (0.93 m-). 

Exception; Where personnel who are trained in extinguishing fires in the pro- 
tected hazards are available on the premises, the maximum surface area shall not 
exceed 20 sq. ft. (1.86 m^). 

(b) For flammable liquid hazards of appreciable depth, a Class B fire 
extinguisher shall be provided on the basis of at least two numerical units 
of Class B extinguishing potential per sq ft (0.0929 m^) of flammable liq- 
uid surface of the largest hazard area. For fires involving cooking grease 
or water-soluble flammable liquids, see 566 (b) and 566 (d). 

Exception: AFF'F or FFFP type extinguishers may be provided on the basis of 
a IB rating of protection per sq ft of hazard. 

(c) Two or more extinguishers of lower ratings shall not be used in lieu 
of the extinguisher required for the largest hazard area. 
Exception: Up to three AFFF or FFFP extinguishers may be used to fulfill the 
requirements provided the sum of the Class B ratings meets or exceeds the value 
required for the largest hazard area. 

(d) Travel distances for portable extinguishers shall not exceed 50 ft 
(15.25 m) as shown in Table 3. 

(e) Scattered or widely separated hazards shall be individually pro- 
tected. An extinguisher in the proximity of a hazard shall be carefully lo- 
cated to be accessible in the presence of a fire without undue danger to 
the operator.

Hazards. 

(a) Fire extinguishers with Class C ratings shall be required where en- 
ergized electrical equipment can be encountered which would require a 
nonconducting extinguishing medium. This requirement includes situa- 
tions where fire either direcfly involves or surrounds electrical equip- 
ment. Since the fire itself is a Class A or Class B hazard, the fire extin- 
guishers shall be sized and located on the basis of the anticipated Class 
A or B hazard. 

Note: Electrical equipment should be de-energized as soon as possible to prevent 

reignition.

(2) All traces of extinguishing material shall be removed from the in- 
side of dry chemical and dry powder type shells before filling with the 
test liquid. 

(3) The cartridges, and some cartridge receivers of dry chemical and 
dry powder extinguishers having externally mounted gas cartridges, 
shall be removed and a suitable plug inserted into the shell opening at the 
point of removal. 

(4) On wheeled extinguishers of the stored-pressure water, loaded 
stream, or cartridge-operated types, the discharge nozzle shall be re- 
moved and the complete remaining assembly, including the hose, then 
tested as described in Secfion 592.2. 

(5) On all wheeled dry chemical, dry powder, Halon 1211, AFFF/ 
FFFP, and carbon dioxide extinguishers equipped with a shutoff nozzle 
at the outlet end of the hose, the hose (complete with couplings but with- 
out the discharge nozzle) shall be removed and tested separately. 

(6) On all wheeled stored pressure dry chemical extinguishers, the 
head assembly is to be removed and be replaced with a suitable test bon- 
net. 

(7) The hose of the hydrostafic test pump is then attached by the flex- 
ible connection to the discharge nozzle, hose assembly, test bonnet, or 
test fitting, as is applicable. In the case of wheeled dry chemical and dry 
powder extinguishers, procedures and fitfings should be those recom- 
mended by the manufacturer. 

(8) The test liquid supply to the test pump is to be turned on and the 
extinguisher then filled to the top of its collar. 

(9) For extinguishers tested with their cap in place, the cap must be 
tightened SLOWLY while the test liquid supply remains open. When all 
of the entrapped air within the shell has been bled off and after test liquid 
emerges, the cap must be fightened fully. 

(10) For extinguisher tested with a test bonnet or fitting, the bonnet or 
fitting must be tightened FULLY while the water supply remains open. 
When all of the entrapped air within the shell has been bled off and after 
test liquid emerges, the vent must be closed Ughtly. 

(11) Pressure is then applied at a rate-of-pressure rise so the test pres- 
sure is reached in not less than 30 seconds. This test pressure is main- 
tained for at least 30 seconds. Observafions are made at this fime to note 
any distortion or leakage of the extinguisher shell.

( 1 2) If no distortion or leakage is noted and if the test pressure has not 
dropped, the pressure on the extinguisher shall be released. The extin- 
guisher is then considered to have passed the hydrostatic test. 

(1 3) All traces of test liquid and moisture must be removed from all dry 
chemical, dry powder, and halogenated agent extinguishers by use of a 
cylinder dryer. If a heated air stream is used, the temperature within the 
shell must not exceed 150o F (66" C). 

(14) Any extinguisher shell that fails this hydrostatic test must be de- 
stroyed by the owner or at the owner's discretion. 

(c) Testing Procedures — Hose Assemblies. 

(1) The discharge nozzle must be removed from the hose assembly 
without removal of any hose couplings. 

(2) For dry chemical and dry powder types, all traces of dry chemical 
or dry powder must be removed. 

(3) The hose must be completely filled with test liquid before testing. 

(4) Pressure is then applied at a rate-of-pressure rise to reach the test 
pressure within one minute. The test pressure is to be maintained for one 
full minute. Observations are then made to note any distortion or leakage. 

(5) If no distortion or leakage is noted, or the test pressure has not 
dropped, or the couplings have not moved, the pressure is then to be re- 
leased. The hose assembly is then considered to have passed the hydro- 
static test. 

(6) Hose assemblies passing the test shall be dried internally. If heat 
is used for drying, the temperature shall not exceed 150°F (66*^0. 

(7) Hose assemblies failing a hydrostatic test must be destroyed by the 
owner or at the owner's discretion.

Article 23o Table for Conversion of 

Classification of Older Extinguishers to 

Approximate Present Classification 

§ 616. Method CDassification. 

Under the present method of classification it is possible for units of the 
same size to have different classifications. For example, 15-pound car- 
bon dioxide extinguishers may have a classification of 4-B:C, 6-B:C, or 
8-B:C, according to the fire extinguishing potential of the individual 
units. Therefore, an exact conversion from the old method to new method 
of classification is not possible. 

§616.1. Use of Table (ISSew). 

Wherever fire extinguishers are found with the present classification 
on the label, this table should not be used. The classification is usable di- 
rectly in the application of Article 11, "Placement of Portable Fire Extin- 
guishers," of this part. 



§ 616.2. Old Classification (Conversioo). 

Wherever fire extinguishers are found with the old classification on 
the label, use this table for approximate conversion and use the resulting 
classification value in applying Article 1 1 of this part. For example, a 
15-pound carbon dioxide extinguisher has the classification "B-1 , C-1" 
on the label. From this table, it is found that the approximate classifica- 
tion under the present method is "4-B,C" ( — 158).

vent alarm or supervisory signal operation. 

Combination systems shall provide for the fire alarm signal to take 
precedence or be clearly recognizable over any other signal even when 
the non-fire alarm signal is initiated first. Distinctive alarm signals shall 
be obtained between fire alarm and other functions, such as burglar 
alarm. The use of a common sounding appliance for fire and burglar 
alarm is acceptable if distinctive signals are obtained. A steady, continu- 
ous, sound for one alarm function and a pulsing sound for the other alarm 
function is acceptable. 

§ 759. IVIounting.

The provisions of this section shall apply to all handle goods, stick, 
dowel, spike and California candle fireworks having a stick dowel or in- 
side diameter greater than 1/8 inch and other devices as noted. 

Handle goods are exempt from compliance with the provisions of sub- 
sections (a), (d) and (e) of this section if they incorporate all of the follow- 
ing features: (1) a soft, crushable type paper mbe, (2) an inside diameter 
of 3/8 inch or less, (3) 3 inches or less of combustible chemical composi- 
tion, and having an overall length not exceeding 12 inches without any 
choke or other muzzle restriction. 

(a) The chemical composition tubes or cases of all stick or handle fire- 
works items, whether spike or dowel, except flares, shall not exceed 9 in- 
ches in length or have an inside diameter greater than 5/8 inch and shall 
be convolute or spiral wound of chip board or other paper having equiva- 
lent strength and shall be well glued. The above dimensions do not in- 
clude the stick, dowel or tubular handles of such items. 

The chemical composition tubes in all fireworks items shall be sealed 
in a manner that prevents leakage of the pyrotechnic composition during 
shipping, handling, or normal operation and shall be constructed in a 
manner to allow functioning without burnout or blowout. 

(b) The use of any choke or other muzzle restriction in any stick or han- 
dle fireworks item, whether spike or dowel or California candle is prohib- 
ited. 

(c) Compositions in all devices shall be designed and manufactured to 
prevent loosely compacted charges. Pyrotechnic compositions shall not 
discharge a flame longer than 8 inches or throw sparks further than 10 



feet from the composition tube muzzle. Handle goods shall not throw 
sparks further than 6 feet from the composition tube muzzle. 

(d) Clay base shall have a minimum finished thickness of 1/2 inch and 
shall be formed in place inside the tube. In no case shall the final composi- 
tion charge and the clay be formed in a combined operation. All clay used 
as clay base shall be sufficiently moistened to insure permanent effective 
adhesion to the inside of the tube or case. 

(e) Fireworks devices which are intended to be hand-held and are so 
labeled shall incorporate a handle at least 4 inches in length. Handles 
shall remain firmly attached during transportation, handling and full op- 
eration of the device, or shall consist of an integral section of the device 
at least 4 inches below the pyrotechnic chamber. 

Spikes and dowels shall be inserted into the chemical composition 
tubes a minimum distance not less than 25% of the length of tubes 6 in- 
ches or less in length and not less than 2 inches into tubes over 6 inches 
long. They shall be cemented firmly in place against the clay base. There 
shall be no void space within the chemical composition tube. 

Spikes provided with fireworks devices shall protrude at least 2 inches 
from the base of the device and shall have a blunt tip not less than 1/8 inch 
in diameter or 1/8 inch square. 

(f) All fuses of every type and kind of fireworks items shall be securely 
fixed in contact with the composition charge to insure against accidental 
loss. Each fuse shall be capable of either supporting the combined weight 
of the fireworks item plus eight ounces dead weight, or double the weight 
of the item without separation from the fireworks article. 

Fuses on all items shall bum for not less than 3 seconds but not more 
than 6 seconds. 

Fuses on all items shall be treated or coated in such a manner as to re- 
duce the possibility of side ignition. The fuse on devices such as "ground 
spinners" that require a restricted orifice for proper thrust and contain less 
than 6 grams of pyrotechnic composition are exempt from this require- 
ment. 

Fireworks items sold or offered for sale at retail which are not enclosed 
in sealed packages, shall have their fuses or other igniting means covered 
in a manner approved by the State Fire Marshal to provide reasonable 
protection from unintentional ignition. 

(g) All pyrotechnic devices having a base shall provide stable support 
to maintain the item in a vertical position when firing. When bases are 
added to the device, they shall be firmly glued in place. 

The base or bottom of fireworks devices having a base or fireworks de- 
vices that operate in a standing upright position shall have the minimum 
horizontal dimensions or the diameter of the base equal to at least one- 
third (1/3) of the height of the device including any base or cap affixed 
thereto. 

(h) The appearance of any fireworks items resembling those articles 
classified by statute as "dangerous fireworks" shall constitute sufficient 
grounds for their classificafions, by the State Fire Marshal, as "dangerous 
fireworks." Special reference is intended, though not by way of limita- 
tion, to cherry bombs and sky rockets and other fireworks which normal- 
ly explode or rise in the air during discharge. 

(i) Pinwheels shall be limited to a maximum overall diameter of 15 in- 
ches, shall be substantially constructed and all driver gerbs, firepots and

responsible to the licensed pyrotechnic operator in charge. The actual 
arming operation shall be accomplished by a competent person. During 
all arming operations all personnel shall take shelter when launching, ex- 
cepting only the individual arming the rocket and his or her necessary as- 
sistants. 

All internal self-contained firing circuits (within the rocket) includ- 
ing, but not by way of limitation, multiple stage ignition, parachute re- 
leases, bursting charges, etc., shall be provided with an arming and dis- 
arming device operable remotely from without the assembled rocket in 
the launching position. 

(b) The firing circuit shall be shunted at both the control center and the 
launching site by the pyrotechnic operator assigned to arm the rocket. 
Both shunts shall be in place and he or she shall test them to insure that 
the tiring circuit is effectively short circuited, before the rocket is set in 
the launching position. 

(c) The single special key, which removes the launching site shunt 
from the firing circuit, shall be the sole means for completing the firing 
circuit at the control center. The arming operator shall retain the shunt 
key in his or her personal possession from the time the circuit is initially 
shunted until the arming operations are completed and he or she removes 
the last shunt in the control center and establishes a ready firing circuit. 

(d) No other means or device than a remotely controlled electric circuit 
of an approved design may be used to launch single stage rockets or the 
first stage of multistage rockets.

§1174. BasJs. 

These rales and regulations are based upon the presumption of fact that 
fabrics and similar materials commonly known to be flammable in- 
crease, or may cause the increase of, the hazard or menace of fir; that 
proper and adequate flame-retardant treatment through the use of certain 
chemicals is possible whereby the danger to life and property from fire 
and panic can be materially reduced; and, that there do exist certain fab- 
rics and materials which by nature are nonflammable.

Article 3. Registration and Labeling of 
Chemicals 

§ 1210. Chemical Registration. 

Any chemical manufacturing concern desiring to have a chemical reg- 
istered by the State Fire Marshal shall accompany its application with the 
laboratory test report, and the registration fee as provided in Section 
13127 of the Health and Safety Code. 

§ 1 21 1 . Standard Fabrics. 

Persons wishing to submit a llame-retardant chemical for registration 
by the State Fire Marshal shall first obtain standard fabrics in accordance 
with the provisions of this section. For exterior chemicals a 10-ounce 
double filling grey duck (Federal Specification CCC-D-761 , February, 
1933) will be used, while for interior chemical a #250 cotton drill dyed 
blue Pontamine 4GLN (or its equivalent) color index #533 will be the 
standard. 

Chemicals intended for the treatment of synthetics such as acetate, ny- 
lon, Orion and Dacron, and various fiber mixtures, shall be tested as 
applied to appropriate fabrics made of such fibers or mixtures. 

The concern submitting the sample for test may desize the standard ex- 
terior fabric before application of the chemical if it so desires. If this is 
done, however, the chemical will then be registered only for use on un- 
sized or desized fabrics. This is based on the premise that a chemical 
which is effective on sized material will be at least equally effective on 
unsized material, but that the reverse is not necessarily true. If the con- 
cern desires to submit its chemical for test on desized material, the entire 
sample of standard fabric shall be desized before any portion of it is 
treated with chemical or cut for testing.

Cost of laboratory tests shall be borne by the applicant seeking regis- 
trafion of any flame-retardant chemical. 

The State Fire Marshal reserves the right to publish all or any portion 
of the laboratory test results. 

§ 1 21 3. Treating Test Fabrics. 

The sample of standard fabric shall then be submitted to an approved 
laboratory, together with sufficient chemical to treat at least five yards of 
the fabric, and the necessary instructions for its proper application. The 
chemical shaU be applied as per instructions, by a member of the labora- 



tory staff, or may be applied by the person submitting the chemical in the 
presence of a member of the laboratory staff or a representative of the 
State Fire Marshal's Office. If the applicant so desires he may treat the 
test sample in his flame-retardant application plant in the presence of ei- 
ther the laboratory staff member or a representative of the State Fire Mar- 
shal. (See note.) Exterior chemicals shall be khaki color for testing. 

§ 1214. Special Processes. 

In cases where chemicals cannot be applied by spray, brush, or immer- 
sion, but must be applied by a specialized plant process, they shall be reg- 
istered only for such method of application. Samples of both the treated 
and untreated fabric or material of sufficient size for test shall be sub- 
mitted to an approved laboratory.

results of actual field use, continued listing of a registered chemical or 
fabric or material shall depend upon the ability of the chemical or fabric 
or material to prove satisfactory in actual use. Repeated field failure(s), 
regardless of laboratory test results, shall be presumed to result from 
chemical(s) or faulty application thereof. 

§ 1 220. Retests. 

The State Fire Marshal may at his discretion require retests of the man- 
ufacturer' s product to ascertain continued compliance with these rules 
and regulations. 

§ 1 221 . Secondary Registrations. 

A company desiring to have an already-registered chemical listed un- 
der the company's own trade or brand name may do so as follows: 

(a) The manufacturer of the registered chemical shall certify in a letter 
to the State Fire Marshal that he agrees to furnish the registered chemical 
to said company for sale, distribution, or use under the new name. 

(b) The concern shall certify in a notarized letter to the State Fire Mar- 
shal that the chemical or compound sold, distributed, or used under the 
new name shall always be identical in all respects to the original regis- 
tered chemical. 

(c) The company shall pay to the Office of the State Fire Marshal the 
original and annual renewal registration fee as prescribed by statute.

§ 1 222. Interior Types. 

Registered interior flame-retardant chemicals shall be listed as 
"Type I" or "Type II," depending on the lasting qualities of the treatment. 
A "Type I" chemical shall impart a relatively permanent treatment to fab- 
rics, and fabrics so treated must meet the requirements of the fire resis- 
tance test after at least three launderings and three dry cleanings. A 
"Type 11" chemical shall be normal water soluble type, which is removed 
by laundering and by certain dry cleaning processes in which solutions

I.D. Bunsen burner, with the air supply just sufficient to remove all traces 
of yellow flame, but without any distinct blue inner cone, adjusted to a 
length between three and one-half inches (3 1/2") and four inches (4") 
shall be applied vertically at the center of the lower edge. No exposure 
time limitation is imposed, since every effort must be made to initiate sus- 
tained combustion. 

Failing to ignite the area originally exposed, the specimen should be 
moved to expose an area near either vertical edge.

Article 6. 



Flame-Retardant Application 
Standards 



§1290. Chemicals. 

No flaine-retardant application concern shall apply a flame-retardant 
chemical on a job governed by the scope of these regulations unless the 
concern and the chemical are registered with and approved by the State 
Fire Marshal. 

§1291. Use. 

No concern shall apply any tlame-retardant chemical to any fabric or 
material for use goveined by the scope of these regulations unless the 
chemical is registered with and approved by the State Fire Marshal for 
treatment of that particular type of fabric or material. 

§1292. Application. 

The chemical shall be applied evenly and to all parts of the article be- 
ing treated. 

§1292.1. Fire-Resistance. 

The treated fabric or material shall meet the requirements for fire resis- 
tance described in Sections 1237, 1237.2, 1261, 1264.1, 1264.2 or 
1 264.3, whichever is applicable. Samples for testing may be smaller than 
sizes specified in these sections. 

History 

1. New section filed 9-1-50; effective 30th day thereafter (Register 21, No. 5). 

2. Amendment filed 3-1-67 as procedural and organizational; effective upon fil- 
ing (Register 67, No. 9). 

§1293. Admixtures. 

No concern shall add to or mix with any registered chemical any other 
chemical or substance excepting a thinning or penetrating agent ap- 
proved by the chemical manufacturer. 

RECOMMENDED STANDARD PRACTICES 
AND PRECAUTIONS 

§1300. Pretreatment Examination. 

Before applying any flame-retardant chemical, the application con- 
cern shall first carefully examine the fabric or material to determine: 

(a) The type of fabric or material. 

(b) If it has been previously treated. 



(c) If it contains any sizing or loading. 

(d) If it can be effectively and safely treated. 

Assuming that the fabric or material is of a type for which the chemical 
has been registered, the concern must then decide how much chemical 
must be applied. This will depend on the area to be treated and the type 
of fabric. The percent weight gain must be commensurate with that deter- 
mined for the cheiTiical on the standard qualifying fabric. It may be neces- 
sary to apply slightly more or less chemical than this, depending on the 
weight and type of the particular fabric being treated, but in every case 
sufficient chemical shall be applied to obtain satisfactory flame resis- 
tance. 

If examination shows that the fabric has been previously treated, con- 
sideration must be given to the possibility that the old treatment com- 
bined with the new might nullify the flame-retardant effect, or might 
cause excessively rapid deterioration of the fabric. Whenever possible, 
all traces of any previous chemical treatment should be removed before 
re-treating. 

The presence of sizing in a fabric can have a decided effect on the 
flame-retardant treatment, especially the exterior type. Some exterior 
chemicals will be registered only for the treatment of unsized or desized 
canvas, and may not be applied to a sized material unless the sizing is first 
removed. Whenever practical, sizing should be removed before treat- 
ment with any chemical, since a treatment is always more effective and 
will last longer on an unsized fabric. 

Celanese and acetate type rayons are extremely difficult to treat suc- 
cessfully, even though chemicals may be listed as approved for such fab- 
rics. Applicators are cautioned not to undertake the treatment of such fab- 
rics unless they have adequate knowledge and experience. 

Before treatment of printed or dyed interior fabrics, the applicator 
must determine if the colors are fugitive and apt to run if the fabric is wet. 
In such a case, the applicator must be especially careful in applying the 
chemical, so as not to cause the colors to run. 

It is an acknowledged fact that certain metals and metallic pigments 
in contact with chlorinated paraffin will accelerate the liberation of hy- 
drogen chloride, especially at high temperatures. This effect is most pro- 
nounced with iron, zinc, and pigments composed mainly of salts of these 
two elements. Zinc oxide is extremely harmful in this respect and its use 
should be avoided, since its effect extends even to properly stabilized 
chlorinated paraffins. 

§1301. Fire Hazards. 

Certain solvents, thinners, and penetrating agents (such as alcohol, to- 
luol, ketones, petroleum solvents, etc.) sometimes used with flame-re- 
tardant chemicals are highly flammable, and manufacturers and applica- 
tors must take all necessary precautions to guard against the hazard of fire 
when using such liquids, especially indoors. 

§1302. Interlinings. 

In the case of drapes, curtains, etc., which have interlinings, the appli- 
cator shall make every effort to treat the lower, accessible pordon of the 
interlining, but it shall not be deemed necessary to treat the entire interlin- 
ing, or to open the bottom of the article if it has been sewed. 

§1303. Water pH. 

Manufacturers whose chemicals are diluted with water by the applica- 
tor must take into account the variation in pH of the water supplies of var- 
ious localities. The pH of tap water in the Los Angeles area is sometimes 
as high as 8.7. 

§1304. Liability. 

Protection of public property is a primary responsibility of the applica- 
tion concern in the field. Dripping, splattering, spilling, etc., should be 
anticipated and provision made for use of drop cloths and shields. The 
flame-retardant application concern may be held liable for damages to 
persons or property arising out of and occurring during the course of 
flame-retardant chemical apphcafion and for negligence of his or its 
agents, servants, employees or subcontractors.

spection authority from any part of the fabric or material and in whatever 
size and number he deems necessary, and the management shall permit 
the State Fire Marshal or his duly authorized representative to take such 
specimens for testing purposes. It is assumed that the inspection authority 
will use reasonable judgment in taking test specimens to avoid unneces- 
sary damage to the article.

§1320. Pre-Job Notification. 

Prior to the performance of every job of flame-retardant chemical 
application by a registered flame-retardant application concern on the 
premises of any occupancy mentioned in Sections 13115 or 131 19 of the 
Health and Safety Code, such concern shall first notify the local fire de- 
partment or the nearest office of the State Fire Marshal, giving the time 
and date that the job is to be performed. This provision shall not apply to 
work done by an application concern on its own premises. The fire de- 
partment or State Fire Marshal may take samples both of the chemical be- 
ing applied and of the finished treated fabric(s).

§ 1321. FSame-Retafdant AppSication Certification. 

After every job of flame retardant chemical application by a registered 
flame-retardant application concern, an approved certificate of flame re- 
sistance shall be furnished the person or concern for whom the work was 
done, and copies sent the State Fire Marshal and the local fire authority. 
These certificates shall be delivered within 10 days after completion of 
the job, shall be filled out completely and signed by an authorized repre- 
sentative of the registered application concern. 

Notation shall be made on the reverse side of the certificate indicating 
the kind of material and color, and, where curtains or drapes are treated, 
whether they are unlined, lined, or lined and interlined. Whenever possi- 
ble the location and use of the treated articles should be given also. 

This section shall apply only in cases where treated fabrics are in- 
tended for use or may sometimes be used in the State of California. 

§ 1321.1. Fabric and Material Certification. 

All concerns in whose name an approved flame-resistant fabric or ma- 
terial is registered shall issue approved certificates of flame resistance 
covering all such products sold for use in occupancies governed by the 
statutes. Copies shall be furnished the buyer as well as the State Fire Mar- 
shal and the local fire authority of the customer's city. These certificates 
shall be delivered within 10 days after the product is shipped and shall 
be filled out completely and signed by an authorized representative of the 
concern. 

In addition to the required description on the reverse side of the certifi- 
cate as to yardage or quantity, color and kind, notation should be made 
of the manufacturer' s production or lot control number, the purchase or- 
der or invoice number, and, where possible, the ultimate location and use. 



§ 1 322. Certified True Copies. 

Upon receipt of written request justifying such privilege, the State Fire 
Marshal may authorize issuance of certified true copies of certificates of 
flame resistance where conditions warrant. These certified true copies 
shall conform in every detail with the approved standard form on file in 
the office of State Fire Marshall. This form is idenucal to the approved 
standard certificate of flame resistance, with an additional legend ap- 
pended, as follows: 

We hereby certify this to be a taie copy of the original "CERTIFI- 
CATE OF FLAME RESISTANCE" issued to us, "original copy" of 
which has been filed with the California State Fire Marshal. 

Spaces are provided below the legend for the names of the authorized 
issuing concern and its designated official. 

In every instance when a certified true copy is issued, a copy shall be 
filed with the State Fire Marshal and the local fire authority in the custom- 
er' s city. Test specimens of required size shall accompany the copy sent 
to the State Fire Marshal. 

All of the data from the original certificate shall be copied exactly, spe- 
cial attention being given to the name of the registered chemical, fabric, 
or material and its registration number and the name of the issuing con- 
cern's official. 

Notation shall be made on the reverse side of the certified true copy 
showing (a) the location of ultimate use, when known or obtainable, such 
as school, theater, night club, or other occupancy governed by the stat- 
utes, (b) the yardage or quantity, (c) the kind of fabric or material, (d) its 
color, (e) the manufacturer's batch or production control number, and (f) 
the purchase order or invoice number as a means for identification. 

§ 1 323. Filing Test Samples. 

Flame-retardant application concerns shall attach to the certificate 
submitted to the State Fire Marshal's office not less than one two-inch 
(2" ) X six-inch (6" ) test sample of the fabric or material treated by them, 
excepting only where such sample cannot be taken without defacing fin- 
ished converted goods such as curtains, drapes, flats, etc. No exception 
is permitted for yardage goods. 

Test specimens of approved registered fabrics and materials shall be 
submitted to the State Fire Marshal. The wide variation in fire resistant 
quality of registered products, ranging from noncombustible to flame- 
proof, militates against setting a single test size and frequency. In gener- 
al, a one foot (1 ' ) by three foot (3 ' ) specimen of each unit or lot of fabric 
and film production bearing the production or lot number shall be sub- 
mitted by the producer directly to the State Fire Marshal. For other spe- 
cial fabrics and materials, the sample size and test frequency will be spe- 
cified on an individual basis to the concern in whose name the product 
is registered. 

§1324. Job Labeling. 

To every arficle that is treated and to every roll or package of registered 
approved fabric or material a small label or tag shall be securely affixed, 
bearing the following information: 

(a) The Seal of Registration of the State Fire Marshal of California. 

(b) Name and registration number of the concern responsible for the 
job or producUon. 

(c) Name of the registered chemical used or the registered fabric or ma- 
terial. 

(d) Date the chemical was applied, or the fabric or material was pro- 
duced. 

(e) The statement, "This article must be re-treated after washing or 
drycleaning by systems with soap and water added" (if treated with a 
"Type 11" chemical). 

This information may be stamped, printed or stenciled on the article 
if so desired. 

Concerns which treat or manufacture yardage goods may print or sten- 
cil their name, or the name of their fabric if registered, on the salvage (at 
least once every three yards) instead of affixing the label or tag as above.

§1326. Retreatment. 

In cases where instructions are issued by the State Fire Marshal requir- 
ing retreatment or replacement of fabrics or materials previously treated 
with a flame-retardant chemical or registered as an approved fabric or 
material, the retreatment or replacement shall be made within ten (10) 
days after date of the order so requiring. A new certificate of flame resis- 
tance covering each such retreatment shall be delivered as for an original 
job as is provided for by Section 1321. A new sample of the retreated fab- 
ric or material shall be attached to the certificate of flame resistance sub- 
mitted to the State Fire Marshal. 

§1327. Installation. 

The standard fire resistance tests presume installation of approved reg- 
istered fabrics in a normal vertical position. Some decorative materials 
installed otherwise, such as in narrow strips or suspended overhead in a 
horizontal position, may exhibit different burning characteristics. Since 
it is not feasible to devise tests for all such installations differing from 
normal, they must be judged on an individual basis. Where indicated, the 
State Fire Marshal may perform such additional tests as he deems neces- 
sary to insure adequate fire resistance of materials as installed.

quantity of blasting agents to calculate the total quantity involved for 
application of the aforementioned Table of Distances. 

(b) Minimum intra-plant separation distances between mixing units 
and the ammonium nitrate storage areas and blasting agent storage areas 
shall be in conformity with the Table of Separation Distances of Ammo- 
nium Nitrate and Blasting Agents from Explosives or Blasting Agents. 

§1572.2. Mixer Design. 

The design of the mixer should minimize the possibility of frictional 
heating, compaction, and especially, confinement. Open mixers are pref- 
erable to enclosed mixers. Bearings and gears should be protected against 
the accumulation of ammonium nitrate dust. All surfaces should be ac- 
cessible for cleaning. Mixing and packaging equipment should be con- 
structed of materials compatible with the fuel-ammonium nitrate com- 
position. 

§ 1572.3. Blasting Agent Composition. 

The provisions of this Article shall be considered when determining 
blasting agent compositions. THE SENSITIVITY OF THE BLASTING 
AGENT SHALL BE DETERMINED BY MEANS OF A NO. 8 TEST 
BLASTING CAP AT REGULAR INTERVALS AND AFTER EVERY 
CHANGE IN FORMULATION, OR AS MAY BE REQUESTED BY 
THE "CHIEF'- HAVING JURISDICTION. 

(a) Oxidizers of small particle size, such as crushed prills or fines, may 
be more sensitive and hazardous than the ordinary prills and should be 
handled with greater care. 

(b) No liquid fuel with flash point lower than that of No. 2 Diesel fuel 
oil (1 lOF. minimum or equal) shall be used. 

(c) Crude oil and crankcase oil shall not be used because they may con- 
tain light ends that offer increased vapor-explosion hazards or gritty par- 
ticles that tend to sensitize the resulting blasting agent. 

(d) If solid fuels are used, they shall be chosen so as to minimize dust- 
explosion hazard. 

(e) Metal dusts (aluminum powder, etc.), peroxides, chlorates, or 
perchlorates shall not be used unless such operations are conducted in a 
manner approved by the "Chief having jurisdiction. 

(f) Unusual compositions shall not be attempted except under the su- 
pervision of competent personnel equipped to determine the overall haz- 
ard of the resulting compositions. 

§ 1572.4. Facility Washdown. 

Washdown facihties shall be provided. An automatic water-deluge 
system with adequate capacity is required to protect mixers and the fini- 
shed-explosive storage area in the plant. Floors shall be constructed so

Notes to Table of Distances for Storage of Explosives 

Note: 1 — "Barricaded" means that a building containing explosives is effectual- 
ly screened from a magazine, building, railway, or highway, either by a natural 
barricade, or by an artificial barricade of such height that a straight line from the 
top of any sidewall of the building containing explosives to the eave line of any 
magazine, or building, or to a point twelve feet above the center of a railway or 
highway, will pass through such intervening natural or artificial barricade. 
Note: 2 — "Natural Barricade" means natural features of the ground, such as hills, 
or timber of sufficient density that the surrounding exposures which require pro- 
tection cannot be seen from the magazine when the trees are bare of leaves. 
Note: 3 — "Artificial Barricade" means an artificial mound or rivetted wall of 
earth of a minimum thickness of three feet. 

Note: 4 — When a building containing explosives is not barricaded, the distances 
shown in the Table shall be doubled. 

Note: 5 — When two or more storage magazines are located on the same property, 
each magazine must comply with the minimum distances specified from inhabited 
buildings, railways, and highways, and in addition, they should be separated from 
each other by not less than the distances shown for "Separation of Magazines," ex- 
cept that the quantity of explosives contained in cap magazines shall govern in re- 
gard to the spacing of said cap magazines from magazines containing other explo- 
sives. If any two or more magazines are separated from each other by less than the 
specified "Separation of Magazines" distances, then such two or more magazines, 
as a group, must be considered as one magazine, and the total quantity of explo- 



sives stored in such gioup must be treated as if stored in a single magazine located 
on the site of any magazine of the group, and must comply with the minimum of 
distances specified from other magazines, inhabited buildings, railways, and high- 
ways. 

Note; 6 — The permanent storage of more than 300,000 pounds of commercial 
explosives in one magazine or in a group of magazines which is considered as one 
magazine is not permitted except by specific approval of the enforcing official. 
Note: 7 — This table applies only to the manufacture and permanent storage of 
commercial explosives. It is not applicable to transportafion of explosives, or any 
handling or temporary storage necessary or incident thereto. It is not intended to 
apply to bombs, projectiles, or other heavily encased explosives and small quanti- 
ties in commercial establishments. 

Note: 8 — All types of blasting caps in strengths through No, 8 cap shall be rated 
at 1 1/2 pounds of explosives per 1,000 caps. For strengths higher than No. 8 cap, 
consult the chief having jurisdicfion. 

Note: 9 — For quantity and distance purposes, detonating fuse up to 60 grains per 
foot, shall be calculated as equivalent to nine (9) pounds of high explosives per 
1000 feet. Heavier cord loads shall be rated proportionally.

Notes to Table of Separation Distances of Ammonium Nitrate and 
Blasting Agents from Explosives or Blasting Agents 

Note: 1 — Separation distances to prevent explosion of ammonium nitrate and 
ammonium nitrate-based blasting agents by propagation from nearby stores of 
high explosives or blasting agents referred to in the Table as the "donor." Anuno- 
nium nitrate, by itself, is not considered to be a donor when applying this Table. 
If stores of ammonium nitrate are located within the sympathetic detonation dis- 
tance of explosives or blasting agents, one-half the mass of the ammonium nitrate 
should be included in the mass of the donor. These distances allow for the possibil- 
ity of high velocity metal fragments from mixers, hoppers, truck bodies, sheet met- 
al structures, metal containers, and the like, which may enclose the "donor." These 
distances apply to the separation of stores only. The Table of Distances shall be 
used in determining separation distances from inhabited buildings, passenger rail- 
ways and public highways. 

Note: 2 — When the ammonium nitrate and/or blasting agent is not barricaded, 
the distances shown in the Table shall be multiplied by six. Where storage is in bul- 
let-resistant magazines recommended for explosives, or where the storage is pro- 
tected by a bullet-resistant wall, distances and barricade thicknesses in excess of 
those prescribed in the Table of Distances are not required.

Title 19 



State Fire Marshal 



§ 1S843 



Note: 3 — The distances in tiie Table apply to anunonium nitrate that passes the 
insensitivity test prescribed in the definition of ammonium nitrate fertilizer pro- 
mulgated by the National Plant Food Institute; and aiTunonium nitrate failing to 
pass said test shall be stored at separation distances determined by competent per- 
sons and approved by the chief having jurisdiction. 

Note: 4 — These distances apply to nitro-carbo-nitrates and blasting agents 
which pass the insensitivity test prescribed in the DOT regulations. 
Note: 5 — Earth, or sand dikes or enclosures filled with the prescribed minimum 
thickness of earth or sand are acceptable artificial barricades. Natural banicades, 
such as hills or timber of sufficient density that the surrounding exposures which 
require protection cannot be seen from the "donor" when the trees are bare of 
leaves, are also acceptable. 

Note: 6 — When the ammonium nitrate must be counted in determining the dis- 
tances to be maintained from the inhabited buildings, passenger railways and pub- 
lic highways, it may be counted at one-half its actual weight because ils blast effect 
is lower. 

Note: 7 — If any receptor and donor are separated from each other by less than the 
specified "'Minimum Separation Distance of Receptor," then such receptor and do- 
nor, as a group, must be considered as one magazine, and the total quantity of ex- 
plosives and blasting agents stored in such group must be treated as if stored in a 
single magazine located on the site of any magazine of the group and must comply 
with the minimum distances specified from other magazines, inhabited buildings, 
railways and highways.

§1584.1. Transportation. 

Unmixed plosophoric compounds shall be transported subject to their 
classification in accordance with U.S.D.O.T. regulations governing haz- 
ardous materials. When permitted and where unmixed plosophoric com- 
pounds are transported with cargoes containing classified explosives 
such transportation shall be regulated by applicable permits to transport 
explosives. When the quantity or class of initiating devices are deemed 
to be explosives under the regulations of the U.S.D.O.T., an appropriate 
permit to transport such explosives with unmixed plosophoric com- 
pounds shall be required. Any vehicle transporting plosophoric com- 
pounds shall be capable of providing reasonable security for the safe- 
guarding of the material in a manner consistent with the requirements for 
safeguarding explosives. 

§1584.2. Storage — ^Warehouse. 

The storage of plosophoric compounds in commercial warehouses 
shall not exceed 50,000 lbs. of materials classified as an oxidizing agent. 
The storage of all hazardous substances shall comply with the nationally 
recognized standards as published by the National Fire Protection Asso- 
ciation. Unmixed plosophoric compounds shall be stored so that the indi- 
vidual components are separated by a space of at least 50 feet, or they 
shall be separated by a wall of not less than one-hour fire-resistive con- 
struction, with any opening protected with an approved one-hour fire- 
resistive door. When the plosophoric compounds are separated by the 
minimum 50 feet, the intervening space may be utilized for the storage 
of other materials which under no circumstances are incompatible with 
any of the plosophoric compounds. Where any material is incompatible 
with any plosophoric compound such materials shall be separated from 
the plosophoric compound by a wall of not less than one-hour fire-resis- 
tive construction, with any opening protected by an approved one-hour 
fire-resistive door. 

Notwithstanding any provisions contained within the National Fire 
Protection Association standards referenced herein, the storage of all 
plosophoric compounds shall be secured against loss or theft. 

§1584.3. storage— Field. 

The quantities of unmixed plosophoric compounds commonly uti- 
lized in the field shall be stored in a suitable container which provides 
adequacy of security against theft or loss. Adequate security shall mean 
that which is equivalent to the security provided for explosive materials. 
Plosophoric compounds may be stored in a building, an igloo or army- 
type structure, a tunnel, a dugout, a bin, a box, a trailer, a semi-trailer or 
other mobile facility.
