Reply to "Fire Resistant Assemblies"

Currently, there are only three sources included in the CBC (IBC 2009):  Gypsum Association's GA-600 (generic assemblies only), the prescriptive requirements in the CBC Chapter 7, and the calculated methods in CBC Chapter 7.

 

Other resources that could (and typically are) accepted by building officials are those listed in UL's Fire Resisitance Directory and within specific Evaluation Service Reports prepared by ICC-ES.

 

FM Global has a list of approved materials, but does not have a directory of tested assemblies, except for roofing.
