20 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Lack of Vehicle Impact Protection NFPA 58 requires protection against vehicle impact in accordance with good engineering practice where vehicular traffic is expected at the location. IFC Section gives guidance on good engineering practices for Vehicle Impact Protection.

21 IFC SECTION 312 SECTION 312 VEHICLE IMPACT PROTECTION General. Vehicle impact protection required by this code shall be provided by posts that comply with Section or by other approved physical barriers that comply with Section Posts. Guard posts shall comply with all of the following requirements: 1. Constructed of steel not less than 4 inches (102 mm) in diameter and concrete filled. 2. Spaced not more than 4 feet (1219 mm) between posts on center. 3. Set not less than 3 feet (914 mm) deep in a concrete footing of not less than a 15-inch (381 mm) diameter. 4. Set with the top of the posts not less than 3 feet (914 mm) above ground. 5. Located not less than 3 feet (914 mm) from the protected object.

22 IFC SECTION Other barriers. Physical barriers shall be a minimum of 36 inches (914 mm) in height and shall resist a force of 12,000 pounds ( N) applied 36 inches (914 mm) above the adjacent ground surface. NOTE: South Carolina allows the use of Jersey Barriers (similar to the concrete barriers used in highway construction). Contact the OSFM Engineering Section for additional details if interested.

23 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Inadequate Vehicle Impact Protection Bollards must be spaced not more than four feet between posts on center

24 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Damaged Vehicle Impact Protection One post has been bent and the second post has pulled from the ground

25 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Improperly Installed Vehicle Impact Protection Posts shall be set no less than three feet deep in a concrete footing of not less than a fifteen inch diameter

26 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Lack of Vehicle Impact Protection and Fire Extinguisher When storage exceeds 720 pounds, NFPA 58 requires at least one portable fire extinguisher with a capacity of at least 18 lb of dry chemical with a B:C rating within 50 feet (ABC is permitted)

27 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR No Security Fence NFPA 58 requires security and protection against tampering such as a 6 foot chain link fence unless devices are provided that can be locked in place to prevent unauthorized use of valve, equipment, and appurtenances.

28 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Improper Installation of Piping Aboveground piping shall be supported and protected from physical damage

29 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Lack of Vehicle Impact Protection and Less Than 20 feet from Gas Pump

30 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Pitting & Corrosion of Tank

31 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Missing Screen on Fill Intake

32 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Cylinder Providing Pressure to Emergency Valve Closed or Empty When pressurizing cylinder fails, the emergency shut off valves are frequently held open with a screwdriver or other device so that gas transfer is possible. This prevents shutdown in the event of an emergency.

33 COMMON PROBLEMS TO WATCH FOR Remote Emergency Release Damaged This emergency release has pulled from the stanchion and the cable will not pull properly to shut the emergency valve.

34 HOW CAN YOU HELP? Be alert to changes in LP-Gas facilities in your area. During new construction or renovations of facilities such as home improvement centers, convenience stores, mini-marts, grocery stores, camping centers, or rental centers, watch for cylinder exchange racks being installed.

35 HOW CAN YOU HELP? Feel free to conduct inspections of LP-Gas facilities and become familiar with the code requirements. For dealer locations with bulk storage tanks, check to see that FD Operations personnel have worked with the facility in the development of a Fire Safety Analysis. Check for valid LP-Gas Licenses whenever you are inspection a location with dealer or reseller equipment.

36 HOW CAN YOU HELP? If you have any questions or concerns about an LP-Gas facility in your jurisdiction, please feel free to contact the Deputy State Fire Marshal assigned to your area. You may also feel free to contact the Division of Fire & Life Safety, Licensing & Permitting Section at or by at:
