Their minimum number that allows any point in the warehouse is not distant more than 50 meters workforce of one of them and 25 meters in the parts warehouse forming cul-de-sac. At least two exits outward of the warehouse or on a protected area in two opposite directions, are provided in each cell for storing an upper surface to 1000 square meters.
2.2.6. Building structure
The operator carries out a technical study showing that constructive provisions designed to ensure that the destruction of an element (walls, roof, columns, beams, mezzanines) following a disaster does not cause the ruin chain of the building structure including neighboring storage cells, or their insert devices, or collapse of the structure toward the outside of the fire cell. This study was conducted with the construction of the warehouse and is kept available for inspection of classified installations.
Areas with the installation show the response characteristics and resistance to the following minimum fire:
- The outer walls of buildings are constructed of materials A2 s1 d0;
- The whole structure is at a minimum R 15;
- For warehouses with one ground floor of over 12.50 meters in height, the structure is R 60, unless the building has an automatic fire extinguishing system;
- For warehouses of two or more levels, floors (excluding mezzanines) are EI 120 and the carriers of at least 120 R floors;
- Partition walls between two cells are REI 120; these walls are laterally extended along the outer wall over a width of 1 meter or are extended perpendicularly to the outer wall 0.50 m projecting from the front;
- The separating elements between cells extend at least 1 meter cover the building to the right of the crossing. The roof is covered with a protective strip on a minimum width of 5 meters either side of separation wall. This band is A2 s1 d0 materials or surface has a metal foil A2 s1 d0;
- Partition walls between a cell and a technical room (boiler off) are REI 120 until underside of roof or free distance of 10 meters is maintained between the cell and the technical room;

- Offices and social rooms, except offices called bays designed to accommodate staff working directly on the storage and docks are located in a remote indoors at least 10 meters of the storage cells.
This distance can be less than 10 meters if the offices and social rooms are:
- Isolated by a wall into soffit roof and intercommunication doors with a door closer, all REI 120;
- Not be contiguous with the cells that are present hazardous materials.
In addition, when the offices are located within a cell:
- The ceiling REI 120;
- The floor is also REI 120 if the offices are located upstairs;
- Interior stairways connecting separate levels in the case of floors located more than 8 meters of indoor floor, are stovepipes by REI 60 and constructed of materials A2 s1 d0 walls. They lead directly to the open air, if not on correct and enclosed circulations same degree fire leading to it. The interior door units overlooking the stairs are 60 E C2;
- Soil areas and storage rooms is A1fl class;
- The openings made in the separating walls (windows, conveyors, pipe penetrations, electrical cables and pipes, doors, etc.) are provided with closing devices or caulking ensuring a degree of resistance to fire equivalent to that required for these walls . The closures are associated with a slave device to the automatic fire detection ensuring automatic closure, but this device is also hand operated, that the fire either on one side or the other of the wall. Thus the doors in a wall REI 120 have a ranking EI2 120 C and doors meet durability class C2;
- The roofing support members outside insulation are made of materials A2 s1 d0;
- As regards thermal insulation (or insulation if there is only one):

- The heat insulation is composed of several layers of which the first (in contact with the roof deck), of a thickness of at least 30 mm, a density higher than 110 kg / m³ and mechanically fixed, a PCS less than or equal to 8.4 MJ / kg and the upper layers are made of insulating, in justification thickness of 60 millimeters of a class D s3 d2. These top layers are cut perpendicular to each cantonment screen with lower PCS insulation or equal to 8.4 MJ / kg;
- The roofing system meets class and BROOF index (t3);
- Materials used for daylighting satisfy the d0 class.
cells The maximum surface of cells is 3 000 square meters in the absence of automatic fire extinguishing system and to 6 000 square meters in the presence of an automatic fire extinguishing system adapted to the nature of the products stored.
The surface of a mezzanine occupies at maximum 50% of the surface of the lower level of the cell. In the case where in a cell, has several level mezzanines, the operator demonstrates, in a study, these mezzanines do not create additional risks, including that they do not interfere with smoke in case of fire .
For textile warehouses, the surface can be increased to 85% provided that the operator demonstrates, through a study that mezzanine does not generate additional risks, including that it does not interfere with smoke in case of fire.
2.2.8. Cantonment and smoke cantonment
The storage cells are divided into cantons Smoke with a maximum area of ​​1600 square meters and a maximum length of 60 meters.
Cantonment The screens are made either by the structure elements (roofing, beams, walls) or fixed, rigid or flexible displays, or finally by mobile screens enslaved to fire detection. The smoke curtains are DH 30, in reference to standard EN 12 101-1, version of June 2006.
The height of the smoke curtains is determined in accordance with Annex Technical Instruction No. 246 referred to above. Smoke control
Smoke cantons are equipped with high portion of natural exhaust units and heat (EFC).

A relevant area of ​​SHEV 0.5 to 6 square meters is provided to 250 square meters of projected area of ​​roofing.
The EFC is not located on the roof within 7 meters of fire walls separating the storage cells.
The exhaust units consist of automatically controlled vents, manual or autocommand. The floor space of all of these outlets is not less than 2% of the area of ​​each township Smoke.
Manual control is easily accessible from each building or each of the storage cells. The action of an emergency control order can not be reversed by another command.
In normal operation, the reset (closing) is possible from the building floor or from the smoke box or cell to exhaust smoke in case of a building divided into several cantons or cells.
Manual control of the EFC is installed at least at two opposite points of each cell. These manual opening orders are placed close to the access of each cell storage and installed in accordance with standard NF S 61-932, December 2008. Version
The EFC, in reference to standard EN 12 101-2, version of October 2003, have the following characteristics:
- Type of opening system B (opening + closing);
- Reliability: RE 300 class (300 emergency control cycles);
- Classification of the snow overload at opening: SL 250 (25 daN / m²) for altitudes lower or equal to 400 meters and SL 500 (50 daN / m²) for altitudes between 400 and 800 meters. The SL Class 0 is used if the implantation region is not likely to be snowy or constructive provisions prevent the accumulation of snow. Above 800 meters, the outlets are of the SL class 500 and installed with constructive provisions preventing the accumulation of snow;
- Ambient temperature class T (00);
- Class B heat exposure 300.
Triggering the smoke is not controlled by the same detection than that which is enslaved the sprinkler system if it exists.
In the presence of a sprinkler system, automatic openers outfalls are set such that the opening of Smoke organs can occur before triggering the sprinkler.
If multilevel warehouse, other than under roof smoke extraction levels by opening the front servo detection in accordance with the aforementioned technical instruction 246. fresh air brought
Brought the fresh air of an area equal to the area of ​​the outlets of the largest canton, cell by cell, are produced either by opening the front panel or through vents connected to ducts or through the cell doors to exhaust smoke to the outside.
2.2.9. Fire detection systems
The automatic fire detection with transmission, at all times of the alarm to the operator is mandatory for the cells, the technical rooms and offices close to the storages. This detection activates an audible alarm throughout the building and subdivision of the cells or disaster.
This detection can be performed by the sprinkler system. In this case, the operator must ensure that the system allows early detection of fire start taking into account the nature of the products stored and achieves a technical study for the démontrer.2.2.10. Means of struggle against fire
The installation is provided with means of struggle against the appropriate fire risk include:
- More fire equipment (hydrants or columns) of a nominal diameter DN 100 and DN 150. These devices are powered by a public or private network. The outside access to each cell is within 100 meters of a fire appliance. Fire units are distant from each other up to 150 meters (distances are measured by passable routes for emergency vehicles).
Networks guarantee the supply of equipment under a minimum flow pressure of 1 bar without exceeding 8 bar. Networks are able to provide a minimum flow of 120 cubic meters per hour for two hours.

If a supplement is needed, it can be provided by one or more of clean water to the site, accessible at all times for fire and rescue services. These reserves have a really usable minimum capacity of 120 cubic meters. They are equipped with suction platforms for every 120 cubic meters capacity.
The rate and quantity of extinguishing and cooling water required are calculated according to the white paper aforementioned D 9;
- Fire extinguishers distributed inside the warehouse, on outdoor areas and in areas with specific risks, close clearances, clearly visible and easily accessible. The extinguishing agents are risk-appropriate combat and compatible with the stored materials;
- Of fire hose located near the exits. They are arranged so that a home can be attacked simultaneously by two spears from two different angles. They can be used in freezing weather.
In the quarter following the start of operation of any warehouse, the operator conducts an exercise of defense against fire. This exercise is repeated at least every three years. For existing installations, such an exercise is performed at a minimum in the three years following the publication of this Order. The exercises are the subject of reports kept for at least four years in the case provided in section 2.1 of this Annex.
2.2.11. retention basins
All liquids storage products that create pollution of the water or soil is associated with a holding capacity whose volume is at least equal to the larger of two values:
100% of the capacity of the largest tank;
50% of the overall capacity of the associated reservoirs.
The retention capacity is tight products it contains, and is resistant to physical and chemical action of the fluids. It is the same for its closure device which is kept closed.
When storage is made up exclusively of containers of lower unit capacity not exceeding 250 liters, accepted for carriage, the minimum volume of retention is equal to either the total capacity of the containers if this capacity is less than 800 liters, or 20% of the total capacity or 50% in the case of flammable liquids (except lubricants) with a minimum of 800 liters if this capacity exceeds 800 liters.
Tanks or containers of goods liable to react dangerously together are not associated with the same retention basin.
This provision does not apply to wastewater treatment ponds.
The products recovered in case of accident can not be discharged under conditions consistent with this Order or are disposed of as waste.
2.2.12. Retention areas and workplaces
isolation and collection system
The floor areas and local storage or handling of hazardous materials for man or likely to create a water pollution or soil is waterproof and equipped to be able to collect the wash water and materials Spilled .
All measures are taken to collect all the water flows and could be polluted during a disaster, including water used by fire, so that they are recovered or treated to prevent pollution soil, sewers, watercourses or the natural environment. This confinement can be achieved by internal or external devices to the storage cells covered deposits. Internal devices are prohibited where hazardous materials are stored.
If internal containment, the flow ports are closed by default.
If external containment device to the building, channeled material is collected, so gravity or through autonomous lifting systems and converge on that specific ability. If recourse to independent lift systems, the operator is able to prove at any time of an interview and a rigorous maintenance of these devices. Regular tests are also carried out on such equipment. These lifting systems are equipped with an automatic stop device and manual. All means are in place to prevent the spread of fire by these flows.
The fire water and confined in a fire are analyzed to determine if treatment is necessary before discharge.
The required volume of this confinement is determined as follows. For each cell, the operator calculates the sum of:

- Extinguishing the volume of water needed for the fight against the burning of a hand;
- Volume of the product released by the second fire;
- The volume of water due to bad weather at the rate of 10 liters per square meter of drainage surface to the containment structure when the confinement is external.
The volume of containment required is then determined by the greatest result achieved by these calculations.
Discharges comply with the following limits:
- Suspended solids 35 mg / l;
- COD: 125 mg / l;
- BOD5 30 mg / l;
- Oil content: 10 mg / l.
2.2.13. electrical, lighting and heating
Metal equipment is earthed in accordance with regulations and standards.
In the case of artificial lighting, only the electric lighting is allowed.
If the lighting implements sodium vapor lamps or mercury, the operator must take steps to in the event of a bulb, all the elements are confined within the device.
Electrical ductwork and other pipelines are a possible cause of ignition or spread of leakage and are adequately protected against shocks, against the spread of flames and against the action of the products present in the part of the facility in question .
Close to at least one end is installed a central switch, well reported, for cutting the general power supply or each cell.
Transformers of electric current when they are joined or inside the warehouse are located in closed rooms well-ventilated and insulated storage by walls and doors fire resistant. These walls are REI 120 and these doors EI2 120 C.
Heating the warehouse and its annexes can only be achieved by hot water, steam generated by heat generator or other system with an equivalent level of safety. heating systems by gas heaters are not permitted in the storage cells.
The heating means docks offices, if any, have the same safety guarantees as those provided to the premises in which they are located.
2.2.14. Protection against lightning
The installation complies with the decree of 15 January 2008 referred to above.
2.2.15. Boiler and local battery charging
If there is a boiler room or a local charge batteries carts, they are located in a room for this purpose, outside the warehouse or isolated by a wall REI 120. Any possible communication between the local and warehouse is done either by a lock chamber equipped with two door sets E 60 C, either by a door EI2 120 C and C2 durability class.
Outside the boiler is installed:
- A valve on the burner supply line for stopping the fuel flow;
- A circuit breaker stopping operation of the fuel supply pump;
- A warning sound and visual device in case of malfunction of the burners, or other warning system of equivalent efficiency.
The battery charging is prohibited outside the charging premises in case of risk of fumes. In the absence of such risks, for a non-automated storage, recharge zone can be set up by bin subject to be distant 3 meters from any combustible material and be protected against the risk of short circuit . In the case of an automated storage, it is not necessary to arrange such a zone.
2.3. Identification of potential danger
2.3.1. Product knowledge - Labelling
Without prejudice to the provisions of the Labour Code, the operator has the documents enabling him to understand the nature and risks of hazardous products in the installation, especially the safety data sheets. These documents are kept available for fire and rescue services.

Automatic closing of the shutter devices (fire doors) is not hindered by obstacles.
2.4.2. Hazardous Materials
The chemically incompatible materials, or can be reacted together in an unsafe manner or are likely to intensify fire, not stored in the same cell.
In addition, hazardous materials are stored in cells in which the storage area is subject to specific arrangements with suitable means of prevention and protection risks. These cells are located on the ground floor without being overcome floors or levels.
2.4.3. Cleanliness of the facility
The areas near the storage are kept clean and regularly cleaned, especially to avoid the mass of dangerous or polluting materials and dust. Cleaning equipment is adapted to the risks.
works Repair work or development leading to increased risk (use of a flame or a heat source, for example) can only be made after issuance of a "permit" and possibly a "fire permit" and following a specific instruction. These permits are issued after discussion of risks related to the work and development of appropriate measures.
The "permit" and possibly "fire permit" and special instructions are established and specified by the operator or by a person he has named. When the work is done by an outside company, the "permit" and possibly "fire permit" and the special requirement on the safety of the installation are signed by the operator and the outside undertaking or people they have named.
After the work is completed and before the resumption of the activity in standard configuration storage, a facility audit is performed by the operator or his representative or the possible external company representative.

6. Safekeeping and fitness end state operating
The operator cuts out and rehabilitate the site so that it no longer presents any danger and inconvenience. In particular:
- All dangerous products and all waste is recovered or evacuated to facilities licensed;
- The tanks and pipes having contained products likely to pollute water or cause a fire or explosion are emptied, cleaned, degassed and, if necessary, decontaminated. They are, if possible, removed, or they are neutralized by filling with an inert solid. The product used for the neutralization covers the entire surface of the inner wall and has adequate end strength to prevent sagging of the soil surface. APPENDIXII

The facility is built, equipped and operated so that its operation is not causing vibrations in neighboring buildings that could compromise the health or safety of the neighborhood or be a nuisance to it.
The particle velocity of vibrations emitted, measured by the method defined in this Annex, must not exceed the values ​​defined below.
1. Limit values ​​of the particle velocity
1.1. Continuous sources or similar
Are considered as continuous sources or assimilated:
- All machines emitting continuous vibration;
- Sources emitting relatively short intervals pulse unlimited number of programs.
The limit values ​​applicable to all three components of the vibratory motion are:

8 Hz - 30 Hz
30 Hz - 100 Hz
resistant constructions.
5 mm / s
6 mm / s
8 mm / s
sensitive constructions.
3 mm / s
5 mm / s
6 mm / s
constructions very sensitive.
2 mm / s
3 mm / s
4 mm / s
1.2. Pulse sources to repeated pulses
Pulsed sources are considered to repeated pulses all sources emitting in limited numbers, pulses at fairly short intervals but higher than 1 s and whose emission duration is less than 500 ms.
The limit values ​​applicable to all three components of the vibratory motion are:

8 Hz - 30 Hz
30 Hz - 100 Hz
resistant constructions.
8 mm / s
12 mm / s
15 mm / s
sensitive buildings.
6 mm / s
9 mm / s
12 mm / s
Constructions very sensitive.
4 mm / s
6 mm / s
9 mm / s
Whatever the nature of the source, when the frequencies corresponding to particulate speeds commonly observed during the measurement period varied from 0.5 Hz frequencies of 8, 30 and 100 Hz, the limit value to remember is that corresponding to the frequency band immediately below. If the vibrations have frequencies outside the range of 4-100 Hz, it should appeal to a qualified organization approved by the Minister for the Environment.
2. Classification of buildings
In applying the limits of particle speeds, buildings are classified into three categories according to their level of resistance:
- Resistant buildings: buildings of Class 1 to 4 defined by Circular No 23 of 23 July 1986 relating to mechanical vibrations emitted into the environment by classified installations for environmental protection;
- Sensitive constructions: constructions of classes 5-8 defined by Circular No 23 of 23 July 1986.
- Very sensitive buildings: buildings of 9-13 classes defined by Circular No 23 of 23 July 1986.
The following constructions are excluded from this classification:
- Nuclear reactors and related facilities;
- Facilities related to general safety, except for buildings that contain them;
- Dams, bridges;
- The water towers;
- The transmission facilities long distance gas or liquids other than water and the water pressure piping diameter greater than one meter;
- Gas storage tanks of liquid hydrocarbons or cereals;
- Rail or road tunnels and other underground structures of similar importance;
- Port structures such as dikes, docks and structures lying in the water including drilling platforms,
why the study of the effects of vibration must be entrusted to a qualified organization. The choice of this organization must be approved by the Inspectorate of classified installations. 3
. measurement method
3.1. Basic Elements

The movement at a given point of a building registered in three rectangular directions, one vertical, the other two directions being defined relative to the horizontal axes of the work studied regardless of the azimuth.
The sensors are placed on the main element of construction (support of a bearing wall window fulcrum on the steel frame or concrete in the case of a modern construction).
3.2. Measuring equipment
The electrode to be used must enable recording, as a function of time, the particle velocity in the frequency range of 4 Hz to 150 Hz for the amplitudes of the speed between 0.1 mm / s and 50 mm / s. The dynamics of the chain must be at least 54 dB.
3.3. Operating precautions
The sensors must be completely secured to their support. Care must be taken not to install the sensors on coatings (zinc, plaster, tiles ...) that can act as filters or vibrations cause noise vibrations if these coatings are not well secured to the main part of building . Should be carried out, if possible, a measurement of existing agitations, outside the operation of the source.
