NOTE - THE NOTED DISAPPROVED ITEMS MAY NOT CONSTITUTE A COMPLETE LIST OF VIOLATIONS. THE DESIGNER IS TO CONDUCT A COMPLETE RE-REVIEW OF THE PLANS FOR ADDITIONAL VIOLATIONS OF THE STANDARD COMMENTS AND INCORRECT INFORMATION PRIOR TO RESUBMITTING.

 System plans must be picked up within 30 days. All system plans left longer than 30 days will be discarded as abandoned.

3/19/2020 DisapprovedReceived deferred submittal letter for CO2. Plans and permit required prior to final.
1/29/2020 DisapprovedCARBON DIOXIDE AND INERT GAS SYSTEMS - VENTILATION CO2 system amounts declared to be greater than 100 lbs (450 lbs declared); therefore, CO2 system is required to meet the requirements of Section 5307 (shown below) for ventilation/shutoff; the plans must show details of storage location, use locations, detection schedule, etc. Alternatively, if this detection and alarm system plan is to be submitted by the CO2 contractor, a deferred submittal may be allowed; please contact Stefan Manning at stefan.manning@coloradosprings.gov for details. ------------------------------------- 5307.10 VENTILATION. Mechanical ventilation shall be installed in addition to a detection and alarm system as required in Section 5307.8 and 5307.9. All compressed gas systems shall have ventilation installed as required by 2015 IFC Sections 5001.3.3.10, 5004.3 through 5004.3., and the International Mechanical Code. Construction plan data and/or a technical report by a registered design professional shall be submitted to the fire code official demonstrating compliance with the requirements. Approved plans/permits for ventilation from the governing mechanical authority shall be prima tacie evidence for compliance. Exceptions: 1. Carbon Dioxide systems with a fail-safe feature that shuts off flow from the source tank upon reaching 5,000 parts per million and/or loss of power. 2. Inert Gas systems with a fail-safe feature that shuts off flow from the source tank upon reaching an oxygen deficient atmosphere of 19.5 percent and/or loss of power. 5307.10.1 NON-CONTINUOUS VENTILATION. Ventilation may be allowed to be noncontinuous in nature it the gas detection system activates the ventilation system upon reaching alarm thresholds as set forth in Section 5307.9. 5307.11 PIPING. Piping for all carbon dioxide and/or inert gas systems shall be located and supported to protect against damage from strain on piping and fittings, the effects of expansion, contraction and vibration, mechanical damage, and heat sources. 5307.11.1 PIPING REQUIREMENTS. Piping, tubing, hoses, and fittings shall be designed to a bursting pressure of at least four times the system design pressure. 5307.11.2 PIPE LABELING. All piping associated with carbon dioxide and/or inert gas systems shall be labeled in accordance with American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) A13.1 to indicate the material conveyed and the direction of flow. 5307.11.3 COUPLINGS. Where carbon dioxide and inert gas piping is run through areas not protected with gas detection and ventilation as required by fire code, there shall be no couplings, unions or other joints that may pose a threat due to failure, as determined by the fire code official. {2015 IFC 5307.10 through 5307.11}

Detection shall be installed for all carbon dioxide and inert gas systems that meet the thresholds shown in 5307.1. 5307.8.1 Detectors. Any detection device used for carbon dioxide and inert gas systems shall be suitable for the use intended and shall be listed or approved. 5307.8.2 Location of detection sensor. Sensors for gas detection systems shall be located in the same room or area, as close as possible to the system supply and at the height indicated in Table 5307.8.2 5307.8.2.1 Point of use detection. Where the point of use is remote from the supply a detection and alarm system is required for each point of use. GAS NAME | GRAVITY (AIR= 1.00) | DISTANCE FROM FLOOR | DISTANCE FROM CEILING | Helium | 0.138 | --- | 12 to 18 inches Neon | 0.697 | --- | 12to 24 inches Nitrogen | 0.9737 | 48 to 75 inches | Argon | 1.38 | 12 to 18 inches Carbon Dioxide | 1.53 | 12 to 18 inches Krypton | 2.89 | 12 to 18 inches Xenon | 4.53 | 12 to 18 inches 5307.9 Detection alarms. Rooms or areas where container systems are used indoors or in enclosed outdoor locations shall be provided with a gas detection and alarm system. 5307.9.1 Carbon dioxide detection. For carbon dioxide, the detection system shall be capable of notifying personnel in the immediate area of a leak at 5,000 parts per million. Upon reaching 30,000 parts per million this system must notify all building occupants of a mandatory evacuation. Exception: Systems with a fail-safe feature that complies with 5307.10 exception are not required to notify building occupants at 30,000 parts per million. 5307.9.2 Other Gas detection. For other gases an oxygen deficiency detection system shall be provided and shall be capable of notifying all occupants in the building when the oxygen level drops below 19.5 percent. 5307.9.3 Detector testing. The equipment, systems and devices listed in 5003.2.9.1 shall be tested at one of the frequencies listed below: 1. Not less than annual. 2. In accordance with the approved manufacturer#s requirements. 3. In accordance with approved recognized industry standards. 4. . In accordance with an approved schedule. {2015 IFC 5307.8 through 5307.9}
