Our Sheriff's Office is wanting to place a plug outlet in their armory--currently there are none in the armory. They want to set up an ultrasonic parts cleaning machine powered by 110V. 


All ammunition is loaded and stored in factory original containers or military style ammo cans with rubber seals. No reloading is undertaken by the Sheriff's Office and they have no reloading gear nor components in their armory. Contents of the armory are strictly firearms and loaded ammunition as described. There is an armorer's tool bench. Lighting is already provided via 48" flourescent lighting. 


The building was constructed and placed into use in 1999 and has not been remodeled. The only codes which apply will be the State of Texas adopted NFPA 101 at the time it was built and first occupied.
