I'm presently designing a three story structure in which the 2nd and 3rd floor framing consists of 1/2" steel plate deck(no concrete fill) over wide flange beam. Due to 3rd floor residential occupancy and the 2nd floor business occupancy, a two hour fire rated separation is required. All floors are wet pipe sprinklered. Is anyone aware of a previously tested similar floor assembly(UL, etc.) which would provide the required rating? If spray-on fire proofing is the only option, then so be it. We were trying to avoid the additional cost if possible. TIA, Charlie Canitz P.S. - I apologize to the list if this message was previously received. My home AOL E-Mail didn't indicate an error in sending nor did it show up on the list so I assumed it was never received.
