Do you know the difference between a fire-resistance-rated assembly and a fire-protection-rated assembly? It could be very costly to price an assembly listed to UL 10C / NFPA 252 when it should have been listed to ASTM E119 / UL 263. This Decoded article covers the International Building Code (IBC) requirements for these assemblies.

Be in the Know About Fire Rated Glazing
Presented by Rich Walke
Building owners love the visibility and light provided by glazing within and at the perimeter of their building. However, when fire-resistance compartmentation is required, providing that visibility can be a challenge. That’s where fire-protection-rated and fire-resistance-rated glazing products come in. Each of these products have a specific use based on the level of safety required. When installed properly in accordance with the code, the listing, and the manufacturer’s installation instructions, these products facilitate safe, code compliant installations without compromising visibility or daylight.
Attend this session and learn how fire-protection-rated and fire-resistance-rated glazing are used to create the desired visual impact while maintaining fire-resistance. The session provides a detailed look at the code requirements, the standards, and the listings for fire-protection-rated and fire-resistance-rated glazing, including a look at why the ratings are different for different applications. We’ll also explain how to read the listings and manufacturer instructions, and how to identify and verify the type of glazing in the field based on the permanent identification provided on the product by the manufacturer.
