Significant Changes to the International Fire Code: 2012 Edition

by Scott Stookey

Significant Changes to the 2012 International Fire Code is a comprehensive analysis of the changes to the 2012 International Fire Code (IFC) that are significant to design professionals, code officials, and the regulated communities.

Updates to the code cover a broad range of subjects, including construction requirements for ambulatory health care occupancies, emergency responder radio coverage, fire protection system requirements for educational occupancies, fire service access elevators, building means of egress, hazardous materials such as silane and the use of hydrogen in fuel cells and vehicles, and fire protection of marinas.

Each change analysis contains the affected code sections and identifies whether the text is new language, a modification of existing language, or has been deleted.

With a clear, straightforward approach and detailed explanations, this is an invaluable tool for understanding the new and revised requirements in the 2012 IFC..

  • Detailed line art and photographs illustrate correct and incorrect designs and installations
  • ICC-assigned code change number is included, along with a single sentence summary of the code change for a quick and easy reference
  • "Change Significance" describes why each change is important and how it can be applied in the field, providing readers with a thorough understanding of the code revisions as they pertain to the real world
  • Each change analysis also includes supporting technical documentation to assist readers in understanding the details of the requirements
