  • High Pile Storage : Exceeding 12' ft in height -Solid-piled, palletized, rack storage, bin box,and shelf
  • Rack Storage : Any combination of structural members that supports materials or commodities
  • ESFR : Early Suppression/ Fast Response ceiling sprinklers -  used widely for storage systems,

                  Protection that exceeds that of in-rack systems, designed to extinguish rather than

                  control a fire. ESFR increased flow penetrates the plume and attacks the source heat
