GAW here's your answer:http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/se ... des/553803
This says, "International Fire Code 2009
Adopted only to the extent referenced in the International Building Code 2009."
International Building Code 2009 in Chapter 35, i.e. the referenced other codes available here:
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
Scroll down to NFPA 211-06, it says:
"211-06 Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents and Solid Fuel-burning Appliances 2112.5"
So NFPA 211 is referenced 2006 version
You can view NFPA 211 here:http://www.nfpa.org/codes-and-standards ... tionID=121
You need to create a free account. Then you will be able to see one page of the code at at time. Be sure to select 2006 version. Can't print but you can do a screen save. When you create the account lie about yourself or you will be getting a lot of junk US mail. Don't ask how I know this.
Now the difficult part. For PA only, it gives a number "2112.5" (see above) I don't know what that means. I'm clueless. There isn't a section with that number.
BTY, for this effort you now owe me a beer.
