I have to build an airport terminal. My question is, should I comply with what is established in 22.214.171.124. of NFPA 101 of 2018?
Paragraph 126.96.36.199 was applicable to stages and platforms in new assembly occupancies.
Taken from the 2018 NFPA 101:
3.3.274 Stage. A space within a building used for entertainment and utilizing drops or scenery or other stage effects. (SAF-AXM)
3.3.274.1 Legitimate Stage. A stage with a height greater than 50 ft (15 m) measured from the lowest point on the stage floor to the highest point of the roof or floor deck above. (SAF-AXM)
3.3.274.2 Regular Stage. A stage with a height of 50 ft (15 m) or less measured from the lowest point on the stage floor to the highest point of the roof or floor deck above. (SAF-AXM)
3.3.218* Platform. The raised area within a building used for the presentation of music, plays, or other entertainment. (SAF-AXM)
A.3.3.218 Platform. Platforms also include the head tables for special guests; the raised area for lecturers and speakers; boxing and wrestling rings; theater-in-the-round; and for similar purposes wherein there are no overhead drops, pieces of scenery, or stage effects other than lighting and a screening valance. A platform is not intended to be prohibited from using a curtain as a valance to screen or hide the electric conduit, lighting track, or similar fixtures, nor is a platform prohibited from using curtains that are used to obscure the back wall of the stage; from using a curtain between the auditorium and the stage (grand or house curtain); from using a maximum of four leg drops; or from using a valance to screen light panels, plumbing, and similar equipment from view.
Unless the airport terminal has stages or platforms you should not have to comply with Section 12.4.6.
we have people seating in loading rooms , so we don´t need to comply with 188.8.131.52.1.1 ? specifically with the provision of smoke control system?.
The loading rooms (waiting rooms inside the terminal building not aircraft loading walkways) are necessary functions in connection with air transport operations as defined by Subsection 184.108.40.206 of the 2018 NFPA 101 and should not be considered stages or platforms in an airport terminal building per my previous post. Paragraph 220.127.116.11.5.1.1 as a possibility was not an applicable requirement for loading rooms inside the terminal building.
Aircraft loading walkways requirements will be found in the 2016 NFPA 415.
18.104.22.168 Airport Terminal Building. A structure used primarily for air passenger enplaning or deplaning, including ticket sales, flight information, baggage handling, and other necessary functions in connection with air transport operations. This term includes any extensions and satellite buildings used for passenger handling or aircraft flight service functions. Aircraft loading walkways and “mobile lounges” are excluded. [415, 2016] (SAF-AXM)
I have tried to guide you through the NFPA 101 provisions so that good sense and judgement prevails to make a decision about a smoke control system in the airport terminal building.
Thanks , very much.
