    "Influenced" isn't "controlled." No manufacturer or manufacturer interest (since TFG isn't a manufacturer) can control any NFPA committee. If anything, the issue with Pro Tech gloves and the 2004 edition of NFPA 1971 is a good example of manufacturer interests not controlling NFPA policy and standards.



    I wouldn't be so happy about being inbred, if I were you, but that's your choice.



    Nobody ever claimed that they were infallible but thier peer consensus system is certainly better than putting on blinders and doing everything your own way and ignoring the experience of the rest of the fire service world. There's just nothing like "200 Years of Tradition Unhampered by Progress" is there?
    Must be hard to be so naive.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    Yes. We were key in orchestrating the world famous "Beer Summit" made famous by out President. It showed the best way to resolve our problems is to drink beer.

    The answer to your question is YES. All a G5A is, is a N5A with no internal impact cap. You will never get Cairns to admit it is the same thing for liability reasons, but it is identical. G5A = N5 (Shhhh!)

    Your idea would work fine.
