Warehouse Layout and Design

Fire Code Consulting

The fire code is a dynamic document, and it is adopted by most of the United States. Active Industrial Fire Protection are expert fire code consultants. We ensure compliance with the latest fire codes and standards, including fire sprinkler design and commodity classification.
What Fire Code Questions Do You Have

Emergency Responder Radio Coverage

Most jurisdictions enforce ERRC testing for larger warehouses. This ensures that emergency responders can communicate throughout the building during a fire. This topic is crucial to fireman's life safety.

Hazardous Materials Storage

The fire marshal is very concerned with Hazardous Materials Storage. The maximum allowable quantities are much less than most realize, and the storage requirements are different between the DOT and the Fire Code.

Active Industrial Fire Protection, formerly Cato Industrial Group, has been around since 2009 to serve the industrial storage community.  This includes end-users, the authority having jurisdiction, tenant representatives, and owner representatives.  We understand all aspects of the industrial transaction to ensure that each party in the process achieves its goals for a successful project.  This way, and forgive the cliche, everybody wins.


We Tackle High-Challenge Projects.

Fire Sprinkler Design

Often, especially in older buildings, the fire sprinkler system may not be sufficient to protect the stored commodities. AIFP can hydraulically calculate existing systems to determine protection and design sprinkler upgrades to make existing systems compliant.

Commodity Classification

Classifying commodities is the most essential component of a high-piled storage project. Commodity classification determines the maximum storage height and even the use of the warehouse. High-hazard commodities can sometimes lead to a change of use.
What commodities are you storing?

Hazardous Materials

Many common household goods are considered hazardous materials when manufactured or repackaged, such as hand sanitizer. The maximum quantities allowed in an unprotected warehouse are very small. Are you at risk?
