-------- IFAI Alternative
Tents, membrane structures, sidewalls, drop and other
installed decorative materials, shall have a permanently affixed label
bearing the identification and information as follows:
The size of the label shall be a minimum of 6" by 9" using ASTM XXXXXX.
For tents and
membrane structures which are not sectional with a nominal square
footage of 800 Square Feet (
) only one label is necessary per tent or membrane structure ,
otherwise two labels opposite to each other are required for tents or
sectional tents and membrane structures with nominal square equal to or
greater than 800 square feet.
materials, such as tent liners or drapes, an identifying label
sufficient in size with a minimum of xx points of typeface shall be
sufficient to identify the section.
For decorative materials a label of ownership shall not be required
as defined in 3104.3-6.
drops or similar fabric any section
must have a label any sectional sidewall, drop or similar fabric
section comprising more than 20 percent of the total area of that piece
requires its own label.
contain the same information as indicated in 3104.4 for Certification.
A label indicating
the owner of, or installer of the tent if different from the user.
This should be a second label following ASTM XXXXX of 6" by 9" in
size with information including the owner of the tent, address and
contact information. The number
and placement of labels shall be consistent with 3104.3-2
Reason: This clarifies the need
and size of the labels. For
sidewalls tent manufactures and rental companies have argued about the size
and number of label. For two
piece sidewalls that have a significant "second" piece a label will be
required where this was not clear in the past.
Also then need for multiple labels in sections more than 800 square
feet is a new requirement.
