NFPA

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Is anyone aware of a provision of the NFPA Life safety Code that mandates 
that the minimum Roof Live Load required by the regular building code 
cannot be compromised as a part of any superimposed loads (such as solar 
panels) placed on top of a roof such that the full minimum building code 
roof live load is held in reserve/available for first responders to safety 
access a roof during an emergency/fire?
