Painting Fire Escapes in Cold Weather?
We received a notice of violation that our fire escapes require painting and we have a hearing coming up shortly. I have looked into manufacturer’s recommendations and they universally state, avoid painting if it is below 50 degrees. We’re wondering if there is an effective means of painting when it is below 50. Alternatively, if we bring examples of the manufacturers recommendations to the hearing, should we be able to avoid a penalty by introducing these recommendations into evidence?
