What are High Pile Permits?
If you plan to stack warehoused goods above 12 feet, most local and fire departments require high pile permits. To obtain a permit, you will need to submit certified plans that indicate that the structure is safe. Your local city and fire departments will inspect the plans and issue a permit if all is in order. In most cases, they are likely to require some changes.
When changes occur, the process can get very complex. For this reason, it is best that you hire a professional. In seismic areas, an engineer will likely need to certify that the framing is sound under load. Another requirement is that of an adequate sprinkler system that can help prevent the spread of fires.
