    Course Description:

    The IBC uses fire-resistive rated assemblies to protect the building’s structural system, to separate adjacent spaces within the building that are not compatible, or to separate and protect adjacent buildings. In addition, the code uses smoke-resistant assemblies to limit the spread of smoke within a building and the dangers it would create for the occupants. Any opening or penetration within the rated assemblies has the potential to reduce the assembly’s performance. This course will focus on the protection provided by dampers, penetration firestops and joint systems to ensure the building and occupants are adequately protected. including a look at the concepts, testing, and installation and where each of the systems is required by the code.

    Upon completion of this course, participants will be better able to:

    • Understand the testing and performance of rated assemblies
    • Identify code requirements and referenced standards applicable to each of the various protection systems
    • Understand the distinction of through penetrations and membrane penetrations and the means to protect them
    • Recognize the importance of the manufacturer’s installation instructions
    • Analyze a typical damper or penetration installation – does it meet code and standard requirements?
    • Identify some of the common mistakes made in protecting openings and penetrations
    • Discuss some of the non-code issues that are necessary for proper installations and inspections
