GRILLS: Grills.sdcpm.com



 SDFD 2007 Fire Code Amendments.  Basically, if a building is sprinklered any grill is OK.  Gas grills with 1 pound tanks are OK in nonsprinkled buildings.
(note: Most common areas are 20lb with are not allowed)

55.0308 308.3.1 Open-flame cooking devices. Charcoal burners and other open-flame cooking devices shall not be operated on combustible balconies or within 10 feet (3048 mm) of combustible construction.
Exceptions:
1. One- and two-family dwellings.
2. Where buildings, balconies, and decks are protected by an automatic sprinkler system.
3. 308.3.1.1 Liquefied-petroleum-gas-fueled cooking devices. LP-gas burners cooking devices having LP-gas container with a water capacity not greater than 2.5 pounds [nominal 1 pound (0.454kg) LP-gas capacity] shall not be located on combustible balconies or within 10 feet (3048 mm) of combustible construction.
Exception: One- and two-family dwellings.
Reason: This is largely an editorial change for clarity. LP-gas-fueled cooking devices are included in the "open-flame cooking devices" regulated by Section 308.3.1. Section 308.3.1.1 is essentially an exception to the prohibition contained in Section 308.3.1 and the code is being revised to clarify that fact. Also, the term "burners" was revised for consistent terminology with the charging paragraph. This revision is as published in the 2007 Supplement to the IFC.


NOTE: 1pound tank "This would signify a small portable hibachi type grill. Most of the type with it's own cart use a 20 lb tank."
