NFPA 101 - 12.3.2.2 Cooking Equipment

Question asked by Nicholas Dawe on Mar 29, 2017

This code section was added to NFPA 101 The Life Safety Code in 2003 (why?)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

12.3.2.2 Cooking Equipment.  Cooking equipment shall be protected in accordance with 9.2.3, unless the cooking equipment is one of the following types:
(1) Outdoor equipment

(2) Portable equipment not flue-connected

(3) Equipment used only for food warming

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most commercial cooking equipment in a kitchen is on wheels, so does 12.3.2.2 permit portable deep-fryer or portable charcoal grilling, inside the an assembly? Section 9.2.3 is the LSC's heating and venting requirements, which is not applicable if (1) - (3) exists.

 

This seems like a unintended hole in the code. Can someone help?
