NFPA 33 Update: New Standard Set to be Published in 2015

Via Soundings Trade Only–

The National Fire Protection Committee on Spray Finishing, the National Marine Manufacturers Association and the Lauderdale Marine Center approved a new standard that reduces the risks involved in spray-painting large objects, including yachts in temporary membrane enclosures.

Such enclosures are used in the marine industry for the painting of yachts that are too large to fit into a spray booth. The standard not only makes painting safer, but also eases the concerns of fire marshals and regulators who oversee the work.

The new standard will be published in Chapter 18 of the 2015 edition of the National Fire Protection Association’s code 33. Read the whole story here.
