Acceptible material for fireblocking chase


Can I glue or screw two sheets of 1/2 plywood together to thicken it up to use as fireblock in a plumbing chase? I have the plywood available and did not want to buy a new sheet of osb.

Call the building inspector and ask because he/she will have to inspect that anyway.

Like Joe said, call and ask. But I don't see a problem at all with it.

I’ve never used plywood or osb to block anything in a frame.

As mentioned, ask the inspector.
