practically zero.  If the spray on fire protection is more than two or three pounds per linear foot on a 24" beam I would be surprised.  Typically spray on is accounted for in the miscellaneous loading.  If the spray on is a factor in the beam design, you are cutting things way too close. :-)

Anybody got a good rule of thumb uniform dead load for sprayed on fireproofing of steel beams?
