As craft distilling continues to be immensely popular, the fire protection engineering expertise of TERPconsulting is critical in distillery and brewery occupancies where the production and storage of alcohol-based products present unique fire hazards. The specialized knowledge of TERPconsulting’s licensed engineers is essential to ensure the safety of both personnel and valuable assets.
TERPconsulting’s experts assess the specific fire risks associated with distilleries and breweries considering factors like flammable liquids, high-proof alcohol, and the presence of open flames during the production process. This evaluation guides the TERPconsulting engineering team in the design of fire prevention measures, such as fire-resistant construction materials, explosion venting systems, and safety protocols for handling hazardous materials.
The knowledge and experience of TERPconsulting’s fire protection engineers are crucial in the design and installation of fire detection and suppression systems tailored to the occupancy’s needs. These systems often include advanced technologies like foam suppression systems, spark detection systems, and fire-resistant storage solutions for raw materials and finished products.
Flammable liquids, spirits handling and storage, and the distillation process require careful fire code implementation and safeguards to reduce hazardous materials in an industrial occupancy. TERPconsulting’s code specialists ensure compliance with local fire codes and regulations, working closely with authorities to secure permits and inspections to maintain compliance with NFPA 30 — Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code.
