Hello:

 

First off all, I want to thanks NFPA for having on-line forums in which we can ask technical questions.

 

I work for a Chilena GLP Company called Abastible, and we have had some problems interpreting the NFPA-58, Chapter 10 (Buildings or Structures Housing LP-Gas Distribution Facilities)

 

The Application says "This chapter applies to the construction, ventilation, and heating of structures, parts of structures, and rooms housing LP-Gas systems where specified by other parts of the code" In this regard, I am confused about the type of structures Chapter 10 is referring to.

 

Does it apply to a residential dwelling units, like the one shows below?

 

Does it apply to a residential building like this one?

residential building: High-rise building

 

Commercial units like this ?

Wendy's

 

.... or Chapter 10 applies only to a special kind of building were GLP needs to be distributed to neighbor rooms?

 

That is my question ... I hope you can understand it.

 

Thanks in advance and Best Regards
