Keep pace with changes in the 2011 NFPA 160: Standard for the Use of Flame Effects Before an Audience so flame special effects won't pose threats to life and property.
The 2011 NFPA 160: Standard for the Flame Effects Before an Audience provides the latest requirements for the protection of the audience, support personnel, performers, the operator, assistants, and property where flame effects are used. Criteria apply to all aspects, including design, fabrication, installation, testing, control, operation, and maintenance.
This standard improves safety with the following revisions and additions:
- Amended the application section to clarify that NFPA 140 applies to use of flame effects when no audience is present in motion picture filming venues
- Updated definitions to correlate both special effects documents, including adding definition for performer and support personnel
- Requirements for developing and approving flame effects plan have been included
- Modified basis for establishing separation distance requirements to utilize a test method that is more practical for use in the field
Formatting changes facilitate ease of use and enhance comprehension for flame effect operators, special effects operators, venue managers, and enforcing officials. (Softbound, 23 pp., 2011)
