National Online Education.

Concealed spaces—e.g., dropped ceilings or soffits—are common in light wood-frame and mass timber buildings. However, equally common are misunderstandings as to what requirements exist for their fire protection. Do all concealed spaces with combustible materials require sprinkler protection, fireblocking, compartmentalization, or other means of protection? What are the impacts of construction type and building occupancy? How are concealed spaces with heavy and mass timber elements treated differently than cavities in light-wood frame construction? Adding to the perplexity is the fact that some requirements come from the International Building Code (IBC) while others come from the NFPA 13 sprinkler standard. This webinar will address these questions and provide practical solutions and details for the protection of concealed spaces in multi-family and commercial wood construction.
