RE: Fireproof partitions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We use the 16th addition of the Fire Resistance Design Manual from Gypsum
Association but UL also has listings for rated walls.  Go to gypsum.org or
www.ul.com/welcome.html

I'll investigate the possibilities but I have a feeling the client won't
want to.  Using CMUs would require modifying the foundation drawings which
already went out.

Any other ideas?

I need some guidance into a suitable system for a project I am working on.


I need a "fire-wall".  I work in the petrochemical industry and basically I

need a partition which has been already been sized (say 22' x 12' high) and

located.  In the past, we have used Durock cement board (wonderboard).  The

problem with using that now, however, is that the current partition is
fully exposed to the elements (unless we enclose/waterproof it).


Are there any proprietary products anybody has heard of or has used that
might work in this situation?
