Join us for this virtual seminar at 3:00 PM EDT
Part I: Fire-Resistant Design and Detailing: Firewalls, Fire Barriers and Fire Partitions
With an increase in wood-frame buildings, more designers are seeking information on code-compliant and constructible detailing. Many are unsure of the code’s requirements for details, specifically at the intersection of rated assemblies and where structure and fire protection meet. This presentation will focus on interior fire-rated assemblies such as firewalls, fire barriers and fire partitions. Discussion will include fire-resistance rating continuity, allowable uses of wood framing in rated assemblies, and allowable penetrations.
Speaker: Bruce Lindsey, WoodWorks
Part II: Type III Fire-Resistant Design and Detailing: Exterior Walls, Intersections and Balconies
A trend toward larger mid-rise wood-frame buildings has more designers seeking information on fire resistant detailing. This presentation will focus on common detailing issues and areas of misunderstanding related to exterior walls and their intersection with rated floor assemblies. Mid-rise wood-frame opportunities and code-specified building sizes will also be reviewed, followed by discussion of detailing code requirements, code compliance, and rationale for approval with an emphasis on constructability and practicality.
Speaker: Terry Pattillo, AIA, WoodWorks
