    Mixed Occupancy Exhaust System

    Mixed Occupancy Exhaust System

    New postby mtCDCcb on Wed Dec 07, 2011 3:00 pm

    We have a mixed occupancy building. Bottom level ski shop, upper levels (3) residential. The ski shop wants to convert one of their rooms to a ski tuning room. Lite maintenance to skis involving waxing and sharpening. Would this change in use require the intallation of any kind of exhaust system in the ski tune room? Thanks.

    Sounds like it would require an exhaust fan if it produced any of the underlined items:
    - 502.1 General. An exhaust system shall be provided, maintained and operated as specifically required by this section and for all occupied areas where machines, vats, tanks, furnaces, forges, salamanders and other appliances, equipment and processes in such areas produce or throw off dust or particles sufficiently light to float in the air, or which emit heat, odors, fumes, spray, gas or smoke, in such quantities so as to be irritating or injurious to health or safety.
