5.3.4 Specially Engineered Installations:
The requirements of 5.3.3 shall not necessarily govern when
special engineering, approved by the authority having
jurisdiction, provides an adequate supply of air for combustion,
ventilation, and dilution of flue gases.
5.3.5 Louvers and Grilles:
In calculating free area in 5.3.3, consideration shall be given to
the blocking effect of louvers, grilles or screens protecting
openings. Screens used shall not be smaller than ¹⁄₄" (6.4 mm)
mesh. If the area through a design of louver or grille is known, it
should be used in calculating the size of opening required to
provide the free area specified. If the design and free area is not
known, it may be assumed that wood louvers will have 20 to
25 percent free area and metal louvers and grilles will have 60 to
75 percent free area. Louvers and grilles shall be fixed in the open
position or interlocked with the equipment so that they are
opened automatically during equipment operation.
5.3.6 Special Conditions Created by Mechanical
Exhausting or Fireplaces:
Operation of exhaust fans, ventilation systems, clothes dryers or
fireplaces may create conditions requiring special attention to
avoid unsatisfactory operation of installed gas utilization
equipment. Air from Inside Building. See 5.3.3-a.
