Re: fire protection of steel beams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Under UBC if this member is part of the "Structural Frame", individual protection is required.  If not part of structural frame then protection provided by floor/ceiling assembly is OK.  

Need to check particular code being used.

Oregon is looking at adopting IBC (When????) and there sure are a lot of changes.  (It gets harder to cope with this as I get older.)

I am looking for a specification for the 1-hr fire protection of steel beams with a spray-on application.

Also, does anyone know if a steel beam completely concealed in a 1-hr floor/ceiling assembly of wood joists, rated drywall, and concrete flooring over p.w., require additional fire protection, or is it okay as it is completely covered by the other assembly?
