Semi-enclosed Space

A semi-enclosed space is considered to be a space which is adjoining an open area, where the natural ventilation conditions within the space are restricted by structures such as decks, bulkheads or windbreaks in such a manner that they are significantly different from those appertaining to the open deck, and where dispersion of gas may be impeded.
