In addition to resin storage and spraying, also look for releasing agents
and solvent storage.  Typically acetone is used for cleaning equipment.  You
might find MEK as well.

Are the hulls stored outside or on cantilever racks or inside during
different stages of finishing and finally once completed?

You may also have exhaust system ductwork and hoods in some areas that need
to be protected.

Typically EHII covers most of the operation.  Storage methodology of the
hulls may drive some storage criteria.  Depending on the location of,
quantity and type of solvents, foam-water systems might also be warranted.

The fiberglass itself won't burn, at high temps it melts.  But in some
cases, other materials are added to the fiberglass for strength or
resiliency that can alter the combustible nature of the product.  It's the
composite materials that can bite you.  Ask what is in the process to be
sure of no surprises.

Also ask for a chemical list if you can, also to be sure you don't have any
unique, unexpected hazards that need special attention.

I have visited a couple - watch out for resin storage. I don't know if the
actual fiberglass is flammable, but the goo they put on it is. The places I
visited also had lots of Styrofoam that was used to fill hull cavities.

I know boat storage is a bad word … how about boat production?



I’m looking at a 40,000sqft production building. I am guessing fiberglass
molds and fit outs going on in these bays. Other than that there is a couple
small offices and a small varnish room.



Anyone protect a building like this before?
