The spirit of code and regulation is to prevent fires, ensure safety for the building occupants and protect equipment and the environment. Fire codes require standby battery systems to utilize an approved method and materials for control and neutralization of unintentional spills.
Codes vary by state and are dependent on model code adoption. Cities may make amendments to state and model codes. It’s best to check with local fire marshal, plan check office or local authority having jurisdiction to seek amendments regarding spill containment codes.
