This course identifies the various fire-resistance requirements applicable where hazardous uses are present. Fire-resistance-rated separations are often utilized as required enclosure elements for hazardous materials storage, or accepted as alternative to required spatial separation. An extensive discussion of control areas as described in IBC Section 414.2 is provided. In addition, applicable provisions for Group H occupancies, incidental uses and separated occupancies are addressed. Specific requirements in the 2015 International Fire Code regarding fire-resistance are also covered.
This course deals with the application of IBC Chapter 7 related to the construction and protection of rated horizontal assemblies. The topics covered include understanding the differences between floor, floor/ceiling and roof/ceiling assemblies, as well as the protection requirements for penetrations, joint systems, ducts and air transfer openings in each of the separate elements. Additional discussion will look at the test standards used to evaluate the assembly and protection systems and how those protection systems are limited or could be compromised if not installed as tested.
