Ensure fire safety with new construction and fire protection practices in NFPA 307.

The 2011 edition of NFPA 307: Standard for the Construction and Fire Protection of Marine Terminals, Piers, and Wharves provides state-of-the-art general principles for construction and fire protection in these types of structures. It's essential for architects, building contractors, owners, and code officials, especially since special use piers and wharf structures that differ in design and construction from cargo handling piers require special considerations based on the type and function of the structure.

Address safety issues with new rules based on industry best practices:

  • Revised requirements for wood and unprotected substructures; and piles and stiffening members of piers and wharves
  • New provisions for use of corrosion resistant materials in fixed extinguishing system that are exposed to weather
  • New recommendation for alternate hydrant spacing in locations in shipping container handling areas

NFPA 307 is essential to fire protection and safety in marine terminals, piers, and wharves nationwide. To protect lives and property, insist on the latest edition. (Softbound, 30 pp., 2011)
