Building codes and fire ratings have been established to ensure the life safety of occupants and protection of property in the event of fire.

Fire Ratings
Building materials are rated for their firestopping capabilities by independent organizations such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL). For example, drywall (5/8 inch gypsum board) has a fire rating of 1 hour. This means that when drywall is installed correctly — without any penetrations and sealed property from floor to deck — no smoke or fire will pass through it for 1 hour, giving occupants time to evacuate the structure and fire fighters time to extinguish the fire.

Firestop materials are designed to restore walls, floors and ceilings to their original fire rating. When installed by trained professionals, firestopping can safeguard people and property to the level intended by architects, builders and materials manufacturers. Life safety demands proper installation of firestopping products.

Codes
Building codes are an important component in fire prevention and containment, establishing strict guidelines for life safety and property protection.

Model Building Codes That Require Firestop
International Building Code (IBC)
Uniform Building Code (ICBO)
Standard Building Code (SBCCI)
National Building Code (BOCA)
Life Safety Code (NFPA 101)
National Electrical Code (NFPA 70)
NFPA 5000 (NFPA Building Code)

The maze of codes, regulations and ratings affecting fire prevention and fire containment can be daunting. You cannot assume that all contractors and inspectors are knowledgeable of the standards, or dedicated to upholding them.

Axiom Solutions has made it our business to know the rules and know how to apply them for our clients’ safety.
