1 hr fire rated detail- one side only


Recommended Posts

I have a buddy that is building a steel warehouse and he needs a 1hr fire rated assembly along the rear wall line due to proximity to PL.

Typ. steel building with no sheathing on the exterior side .

He does have 5/8" type X on the interior but I can't find a 1hr detail showing only that material on one side-

Anyone ever see a similar condition of have a supporting detail?

 

Much appreciated as always

I will look at the drawings when I check the job this afternoon-

If it is required from both sides the building design the had approved would not have met that standard however-

That said, I am assuming that the rating is from the interior side only.

Check out the UL BXUV V421 assembly. If you don't have access to the online UL database, you can use the attached publication from the MBMA - it's old, but the assembly hasn't changed. The head-of-wall is an area of special concern - you'll have to detail that yourself based on the roof construction.

Thanks Robert-

Looks like the min I can find for a one side only application is 3 layers of 5/8" type X per WP9021.

Better run with what we have spec'd!

The Gypsum Association WP 9021 requires 3 layers of 5/8" type X, but the UL V421 allows 3 layers of 1/2" regular. The UL assembly might save a bit of money, if the building department allows the UL assembly.
