Related AT Standards & Recommendations

  • AT Std 13: Mailrooms: Sealing
  • AT Std 17: Mailroom Ventilation: Isolation Controls
  • AT Std 18: Emergency Air Distribution Shutoff
  • AT Rec 14: Asset Location
  • AT Rec 15: Room Layout

Issues & Strategies

  • Consider automating the building's emergency air distribution shutoff system to integrate carbon dioxide monitoring. Include carbon dioxide detection in mailroom isolation controls for detecting chemical, biological, or radiological agents.
