3401.2 Permit Required

This section has been amended at the state or city level.
Words and terms used in this chapter and defined in Chapter 2 shall have the meanings ascribed to them as defined therein.
Tire rebuilding plants shall comply with the requirements of the International Building Code, as to construction, separation from other buildings or other portions of the same building, and protection.
Buffing operations shall be located in a room separated from the remainder of the building housing the tire rebuilding or tire recapping operations by a 1-hour fire barrier.

Exception: Buffing operations are not required to be separated where all of the following conditions are met:
  1. Buffing operations are equipped with an approved continuous automatic water-spray system directed at the point of cutting action.
  2. Buffing machines are connected to particle-collecting systems providing a minimum air movement of 1,500 cubic feet per minute (cfm) (0.71 m3/s) in volume and 4,500 feet per minute (fpm) (23 m/s) in-line velocity.
  3. The collecting system shall discharge the rubber particles to an approved outdoor noncombustible or fire-resistant container that is emptied at frequent intervals to prevent overflow.

This section has been amended at the state or city level.
Precautions against fire shall be taken in accordance with the Connecticut State Fire Prevention Code.
UpCodes note: We have deleted sections 3404.5 Fire Safety Plan and 3404.6 Telephone Number below. The 2018 Connecticut State Fire Safety Code document states:

"(Del) 3405.5 Fire safety plan. Delete section.

(Del) 3405.6 Telephone number. Delete section."

There seems to be a typo in the document because Fire Safety Plan was referenced as Section 3405.5 and Telephone Number was referenced as Section 3405.6 while in the base code, it is Section 3404.5 and 3404.6 respectively.
