    Hazards in hypobaric facilities pose major fire safety concerns. Mitigate the risks with the 2018 edition of NFPA 99B.

    The presence of oxygen-enriched atmospheres poses specialized risks, and NFPA 99B: Standard for Hypobaric Facilities presents important requirements intended to protect against fire, electrical, explosive, and implosive hazards. The Standard also provides criteria for facility design, construction, operation, and maintenance.

    Use the latest best practice for architects, designers, facility staff, maintenance professionals, and safety directors. This edition:

    • Includes updated referenced standards to the most current editions available 
    • Presents revised language throughout to better align with NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code, specifically concerning interior paint/coating and flooring for Class D and E chambers and changing the wording "flame resistant (hypobaric)" to "limited-combustible (material)"

    NFPA 99B is essential for manufacturers and anyone who owns or operates hypobaric facilities.

    In addition to enforceable requirements, the Standard's Annexes provide detailed information about hazards and the fire response procedure, and also include a useful pressure table. (Print, 32 pp., 2018)
