Temporary Trailers

I am looking for information on temporary construction trailers and where ther fall in Use and Occupancy Classification. Business owner wants to know if they need a sprinkler system installed in this trailer that will be used to house 4-6 office people for about a year.

  1. Steve,

    I am not aware of any requirement for a construction trailer to be suppressed. Normally they are for the purpose of conducting business, and at the very least would be a “B” use group. Bonding and grounding is always a concern depending on how the electric is supplied, given the external aluminum skin. A fire extinguisher is also a requirement.

    That should be it. Let me know if you need anything else.
