Organization: NFPA
Publication Date: 1 January 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 26
scope:

This standard specifies the minimum fire protection requirements for the construction and protection of airport terminal buildings. It specifies the minimum requirements for the design and maintenance of the drainage system of an aircraft fueling ramp to control the flow of fuel that can be spilled on a ramp and to minimize the resulting possible danger. In addition, it contains the minimum requirements for the design, construction, and fire protection of aircraft loading walkways between the terminal building and aircraft.

Purpose. The purpose of this standard is to provide a reasonable degree of protection for life and property from fire at airport terminal complexes.

Requirements applicable to ramp drainage systems are intended to limit the fire hazard from fuel spillage in the following ways:

(1) Controlling the spread of a fuel spill to limit exposure to buildings, aircraft loading walkways, concourses, or elevated structures in order to prevent the fuel's liquid or vapors from reaching a source of ignition or accumulating within structures

(2) Limiting the spread of the fuel spill over the ramp surface and preventing the transmission of vapors by the drainage system from exposing aircraft or other equipment parked or operating on the ramp

The purpose of this standard is also to specify minimum criteria for fire protection of aircraft loading walkways that can serve as egress routes from aircraft in the event that a fire caused by a flammable liquid spill on the airport ramp exposes the walkway and the aircraft.
