Fire-Resistance-Rated Construction Requirements of the 2021 IBC
Description: This program provides an in-depth look at the requirements of the 2021 International Building Code for fire-resistance-rated construction. It will start with a detailed look at what is fire-resistance-rated construction, where it is required, and what is the required rating. From there, it will cover the practical aspects as detailed in Chapter 7, including the unique requirements for structural elements, walls, and horizontal assemblies, the referenced standards, the testing process described in the referenced standards, and the available methods of demonstrating code compliance. The protection of breaches within these assemblies will be covered in subsequent classes.
