How to fireblock framing

Probably the best article I've ever seen written on fire blocking.

Fire Stop ?


In your 8' high wall, every 10' lineally, f.b. is required. Ask your local B.D. as foam on the concrete may not be acceptable without wood from stud/concrete with a v.b. plastic; #7 here: http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...9_3_sec017.htm

Although it would work the code makes no provision for FRT plywood in fireblocking applications. It simply requires 3/4" structural panels, so technically 1/2" and 5/8" FRT plywood do not meet the letter of the code.

Not to mention their price.

Fire caulk is also unnecessary in fireblocking, albeit effective. Fireblocking foam is an easier and much cheaper alternative.

I would never have read or even thought about the subject if you didn't post that link. Well, I guess I THOUGHT about it. That's why I'm in this thread.
