Octo Thoughts If you work in architecture, engineering or construction, you’ve likely heard or used the term “fire wall” to denote a fire resistance-rated wall assembly.

elements of buildings, the fire-resistance rating classifies the ability of an assembly to confine and isolate fire within a zone comprised of fire resistance-rated walls, ceiling and floor assemblies. The ratings relate to fire tests designed to determine how quickly fire can raise the temperature to unacceptable levels. Horizontal assemblies such as floors, ceilings and roofs are tested for fire exposure from the underside only. This is because a fire in the compartment below presents the most severe threat. For this reason, the fire-resistance rating is required from the underside of the assembly only. person’s report as above, floors with lath and plaster ceilings be upgraded to give 30 minutes fire resistance. In the case of floors with a 22mm T & G deck and joists of at least mm x 50mm in section this can relatively easily be achieved by the incorporation of a specific type of mineral fibre batt mm thick tightly fitted intoFile Size: 81KB. through joints between fire-resistance-rated assemblies.

The resulting fire resistance rating relates to the assembly in its entirety and is published or classified in the UL Fire Resistance Directory. Selecting the Right UL Fire-Rated Assembly 1.
