(a) Grain elevators or structures used to store grain shall not be located within forty feet of adjoining property lines, other than street lines or railroad right-of-way lines.
(b) Grain elevators or structures used for grain storage shall be constructed of steel, concrete or other noncombustible material to meet the approval of the Superintendent of Building and Zoning Inspection, and all such structures, buildings and equipment shall be erected, altered or installed in accordance with safe practice. The provisions of Pamphlets 61B and 61C of the National Fire Protection Association shall be considered as constituting safe practice, except as otherwise provided in this Building and Housing Code.
(c) Where combustible material, other than grain or belts, is present in a quantity sufficient to produce a serious fire, fire protection equivalent to Type 1 (fireproof) construction shall be provided, unless approved automatic sprinkler protection is installed in accordance with the requirements of Chapter 1436. In no case, however, shall the requirements for grain elevators or grain storage buildings be less restrictive than those applying to hazardous occupancies as specified in Section 1488.01.
