Are you looking to store your products 12 feet or higher in an area greater than 500 square feet? Then it would be best if you had a High Piled Storage Permit. Unfortunately, there is no workaround; you must comply within 120 days of the fire marshals citation or approved plans. In some cases, they do not give you much time to comply.
What to expect in the coming year
The requirements for a High Piled Storage Permit in TEXAS are changing due to them adapting to the ICF (International Fire Codes) and the latest NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) standards.
In addition, with the increase of products coming into the country and companies wanting to increase their storage capacity in a warehouse, stricter law enforcement needed to be implemented to keep everyone safe from fires, accidents, and deaths.
When the fire marshals come to your warehouse, they are not there to shut you down. Instead, they are there to ensure you store your products correctly and safely, so you should learn to classify your products by commodities and how high you can store certain commodities.
