Fire Rated Assemblies
A fire endurance rating may be mandated by code for many of the applications where trusses could be used in floor/ceiling, roof/ceiling or in attic separation applications. There will be instances when materials and assemblies used in a building may not be readily available from prescriptive tables and tests. Theoretical methods have been developed that offer an alternative to full scale fire tests.
