Meeting in San Antonio, TX, the full committee of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 33) recently approved the Chapter 18 proposal permitting spray painting of yachts inside temporary membrane enclosures. This was the result of several years of collaboration with Lauderdale Marine Center, the largest yacht repair facility in the United States. The new standard addresses the risks of spray painting marine vessels and other objects that are too large to fit into conventional spray booths.

Lauderdale Marine Center and their fire consultant, Greg Cahanan, brought the proposal to the NFPA after the marina became aware of the need for stricter fire safety standards. NMMA’s Vice President of Government Relations, John McKnight, who chaired the membrane enclosure task group said,“It sets the bar for fire protection during spray painting, which is critical for the yard and those who permit and insure it.”

The new standard also addresses the issue of using enclosures within buildings. With the help of Lauderdale Marine Center’s consultant, William Koffel, PPE, a new technology has been approved that allows the top of the membrane tent to fail at a low temperature allowing sprinklers to function properly in the event of a fire.

Along with other responsible shipyards, Lauderdale Marine Center already employs the best management practices set forth in the standard regarding electrical, ventilation, fire sprinkler, and flammable material issues. The marina is also a State of Florida Clean Marina providing pump-out hookups at each slip and a comprehensive petroleum spill recovery plan.

The new fire prevention standard will be published in the 2015 edition of the NFPA 33 code.
