    All the hard work... hours spent making phone calls, sending emails, visiting properties, updating talking points, putting together contact lists, creating e-blasts... it was all worth it!

    SB101 has passed and is on its way to the Governor's desk for signature.

    This new legislature will be effective on January 1, 2022.

    Make plans to attend the Fall Conference on November 9-10th to learn the details of the bill from Scott Zucker!

    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - MustGo Storage Tablets offer an effective alternative to desiccant packets for protecting personal property from musty odors and mold staining during storage.

    Items in storage are vulnerable to moisture related musty odors and staining. For years, people have relied on desiccant packets, which remove humidity by absorbing water. But desiccant packets have very limited capacity and short lifespans. Containers of calcium chloride granules can be messy.

    Musty odors and mold staining not only cause financial loss through irreparable damage to valuable personal property, but also emotional loss when heirlooms with sentimental value are damaged. MustGo Storage Tablets are the effective solution. A method so new, unique and functional; the inventors have applied for patents.

    How do MustGo Storage Tablets work? MustGo Storage Tablets are designed to be used in boxes, totes and bags where there is little or no air exchange. Upon exposure to air, they slowly start to emit a dry, invisible protective vapor. This dry vapor slowly fills the airspace, including hard-to-reach areas. The vapor is absorbed into materials through exposure during storage and does not stain, bleach, fade, or corrode property. When items are removed from protective storage, the vapor absorbed by materials quickly dissipates upon exposure to fresh air.

    In unconditioned and conditioned spaces MustGo Storage Tablets will protect: personal property, cars, RVs, boats, sports equipment, etc. MustGo Storage Tablets cause no damage, produce no waste and may be reused. They protect everything from linens and documents to electronics against humidity-related damage for 12+ months.

    MustGo Storage Tablets are easy to use. Users simply box their items, add MustGo Storage Tablets, then seal and store. 

    Ideaz, LLC. is a veteran owned product-development business providing creative and unique solutions to common problems.

    MustGo Storage Tablets is a unique approach, called “thinking inside the box.”

    With the support of its Code Committee, the national Self Storage Association successfully pursued several key changes to the 2021 International Building Code.

    1. An exception has been added to IBC Section 2902.3.3 to permit an increase in the location (to greater than every other floor) and maximum distance of travel (to greater than 500 ft) for restrooms.  The location and travel distance must be approved by the code official.
    2. The maximum allowable height of sprinklered facilities made of Type IIB materials (unprotected steel) and Type IIIB materials (noncombustible or fire-retardant-treated wood stud exterior walls and any interior construction) has been increased from 3 stories to 4 stories.  The Code continues to have total floor and building square footage limits.
    3. Pursuant to modified IBC Section 903.2.9, storage facilities are exempt from the automatic sprinkler system requirement if: (1) the total fire area is 12,000 sq. ft. or less; (2) the combined total fire areas are 24,000 sq. ft. or less; (3) the facility is no greater than one story above grade plane; and (4) all storage spaces are accessed directly from the exterior.

    These changes go into effect as they are adopted by local and state governments over the next several years.  Prior to the adoption on the local and state level, storage developers can request that the code official rely on the 2021 changes as acceptable alternative methods of construction pursuant to section 104.11 of the existing International Building Code.

    Please email Joe Doherty with any questions or to receive supporting documentation for these changes.
