NFPA 211 protects lives with safer chimneys, fireplaces, and vents.
Avoid dangerous errors and maximize safety in residential and nonresidential properties. Consult guidelines in the 2006 NFPA 211 for construction projects involving chimneys, fireplaces, vents, and solid fuel-burning appliances.
Significant changes in NFPA 211: Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents, and Solid Fuel-Burning Appliances include:
Revised structural and foundation requirements for chimneys and fireplaces
Changes in the effective area of chimney connectors
Revised provisions for firebox/fireplace construction and sizing
Apply the accepted rules for everything from selection of equipment to installation to inspection. A chapter on maintenance provides facts about inspection of existing chimneys and cleaning methods. NFPA 211 is essential for architects, installers, equipment manufacturers, AHJ's, and building owners. (Softbound, 57 pp., 2006)
