An owner gives you this criteria for protecting a truck dock door opening. A
semi-trailer is parked at the opening up against the dock seal, the trailer
contains wooded pallets.
The rollup door and the trailer doors remain open at all times for in and out
Their recommended method of protecting the opening is to use 1.5" pipe with
1/4" holes drilled every 6". Provide this around the opening which is 12" wide
by 9' high. This is approved by their international corporate safety
This will be a deluge system for two dock doors.
How are you going to calculate this?
