    Re: pit design

    Use of a fog machine at any event will very likely be in conflict with the local fire codes. At almost any trade show, the parent organizer (FIRST in our case) as well as each individual exhibitor (the teams in our case) has to sign some sort of contract.

    As an example, if you go to the Georgia Dome web site and check out their contract for any car show, etc, they have very strict rules about electrical, clearances, smoke, water, etc.......

    Instead of a fog machine, maybe you can "blow smoke" with a fan and some paper streamers that won't violate fire code rules, plus it won't interfere with your pit-mates next door?

    Thank you, Maximus. That is correct. There is no specific verbiage in the safety manuals that would prohibit this, per se. However, there may be rules or regs that are specific to that event or their facilities requirements.

    Your idea does sound cool. As always, I would encourage proper an safe operation if you are able to use the device.

    Can we use a fog machine? Would this be allowed if it was done in a completely safe manner? We would like to use is to simulate smoke rising from a chimmey. Nothing heavy, just "puffy."
