The Brazilian Standards are developed by the Study Groups, formed by representatives of the sectors involved, doing their part: decorators, employ ees and colaboradres. Introduction In recent years the CB-24 has received sugges tions to regulate demonstrations at Christmas time with respect to the following : a) b) the general and specific aspects of project design deployment facilities ornaments; demystification of messages, general aspects of decoration and testi ng of the systems set in decorations. 1 Purpose This standard sets out specific minimum requirements required for the design, installation, maintenance and testing of the Christmas decorations in of fices of companies providing engineering services. This standard applies not onl y to the corporate offices but also to home offices, installed indoors, observin g the requirements of NFPA-70. 2 2 Normative references In addition to the standards referenced in the Normative References section of NBR is necessary to consult: NBR 92 639 - Cylinders and co lored glass beads pending on Christmas trees - specification NBR 18 441 systems with flashing lights carols. - Specification NBR 23 493 - Employment of basic colors for ornaments and Christmas balls - Proc edure NBR 17 195 - Color Cotton Tree Christmas - specification NBR 33 455 voltag es acting in garlands - Calculation.

V - Convent ion of Hebron - 1999) and football club badges and banners of any kind of colleg e (Statute Fan Art 6. Brazil 2003) . 4.1.3 Means shall be provided for quick dis assembly environments decorated with ornaments. In all the doors of these enviro nments must be determined externally signposts warning for the celebration, with the following text: "WARNING - ENVIRONMENT Grace - TIME FOR CHRISTMAS." 4.1.4 W hen there is a possibility of two or more stalls or tables offices are subject t o the same decoration simultaneously, given their proximity and / or interconnec tion, each of which should be decorated by his own embellishments. 4.1.5 The env ironment that contains the decoration decorations should be as close as possible . The openings should be restricted to a minimum, entry, and equipped with autom atic closing devices. 4.1.6 When the closure of the openings is impracticable, t here must be an additional amount of decorations to make the "leak." 4.1.7 If th e environment is adorned with a single through openings that can not be closed, with other environments where there is potential for decoration, these should be trimmed. 4.1.8 Doors, windows, displays or windows should not have their vision obstructed by any type of decorations. Note: The above restriction applies to d olls whose feet, hands or tails are suckers.

The code must be punctured holes in his body and regi stered in the project executive. 4.2.6 When the environment, by their constructi on, is very tight, with no walls resistant strain of Garland, there must be an o pening to relieve this tension. The area of opening should be calculated by the formula: D = 661, P 2 = D * pdp Where: A = free area of opening, m 2 D = nominal diameter of the cable festoon i n mm P = allowable stress in the walls of the enclosure, Mpa, integrated between 0 and tensile strength five specific conditions. 5.1 Calculation of required am ount of embellishments 5.1.1 The amount of decorations must be calculated to ens ure minimum quota of 5% for the cas of the images of angels and Santa Claus blac k. 5.1.2 The minimum retention decoration decorations for the environment should be 60 days after installation. 5.1.3 The basic amount required for decorations must be calculated by the formula: Q

b = V a.Fi Where: Qb = quantity of required basic embellishments kg Va = volume of the envi ronment decorated in m 3 fi = factor decorations (kg / cm 3), variable volume as the environment (see Table 1 Table 1: Factor decoration, to minimum concentrati on 40% volume environment adorned (m 3) Up to 3.96 3.97 to 14.15 14.16 to 45.28 over 1415.0 (A) Factor decoration (ornaments 3/kg m) 0.72 0.78 0.83 1.15 (kg ornaments / m 3) 1. 38 1.28 1.21 1.08 Minimum amount required (A) (kg) 4.5 15.1 45.4 The amount of embellishments discharged into the environment can not be lower th an listed in this column. 4 5.2 System Components 5.2.1 5.2.1.1 Garland Garland for the distribution of deco rations should not have their way over the stalls, should be observed in designi ng the distances required. 5.2.1.2 When festoons pass over monitors its supporte rs must be bolted and / or simply welded to the frame of the equipment.
