You might wish to check NARA's -- Facility Standards for Records Storage
Facilities at

They incorporate many ASTM, ANSI and NFPA standards.  It could be of help.

In addition I seem to remember while on a tour of NARA's Archives II in
College Park, that the night parking and fire alarm positioning of the
mobile shelving was about 6 inches apart.

A quote from the above referenced document:

(3) Compact mobile shelving systems (if used) must be designed to permit
proper air circulation and fire protection (detailed specifications that
meet this requirement can be provided by NARA by writing to Director, Space
and Security Management Division (NAS), National Archives and Records
Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001.).

NAS Phone Number:  301-713-6750

Hope this helps

Subject: Rolling Shelving/Flue Space

I have a question regarding how much space is needed between rows of
mobile (rolling) shelving on tracks shelving in order to allow the
sprinkler system to work properly.  Our fire protection engineer is
suggesting 6 inches.  Is this consistent with guidance that other
records operations use?  Does any one have any technical data that
suggests a smaller flue space may be effective.

Please feel free to respond to the list or directly to my attention.
