    Program:  The International Building Code requires fire-resistance rated assemblies to protect structural components, to separate adjacent spaces within a building, and to separate and protect adjacent buildings. In addition, the code sometimes requires smoke-resistant assemblies to limit the spread of smoke within a building to protect occupants. This presentation explores the characteristics of and construction requirements for the many and varied types of separation assemblies that are required by the IBC to mitigate fire and smoke spread. These assemblies include fire walls, fire barriers, fire partitions, smoke barriers, horizontal assemblies and other separation elements. The program also provides detailed information on where these assemblies are required by the IBC.

    In addition, because openings and penetrations of fire and smoke assemblies can compromise their effectiveness, the IBC regulates openings and penetrations by requiring fire and smoke dampers, penetration firestops and joint systems. This presentation will also include discussion of the concepts, testing requirements, installation requirements and required locations for protection of openings and penetrations in rated assemblies.
