TWO 2015 IBC TRAINING SESSIONS:

(2) USE OF FIRE AND SMOKE SEPARATIONS

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

8:00am - 3:30pm

Three Stallion Inn

665 Stock Farm Road

Randolph, VT

Two aspects of the International Building Code that are a source of confusion are (1) requirements for interior finishes and foam plastics and (2) the use of fire and smoke separations. This year we have Doug Thornburg, a popular teacher with the International Code Council, returning to spend three hours on each subject.

2015 IBC FIRE RISKS OF INTERIOR FINISHES

– 3 hours

Focused primarily on Chapter 8, this seminar addresses the allowances and limitations of various finish materials of floors, walls and ceilings. In addition, the provisions dealing with the use of foam plastic insulation are examined in detail. The discussion includes the review of a number of test standards applicable to various finish conditions.

Specific topics include:

    • Test standards applicable to interior finish materials
  • Wall and ceiling finishes
    • Textile wall and ceiling coverings
    • Direct, set-out and furred construction methods
    • Floor finishes
    • Decorative materials and trim
    • Foam plastics defined

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion, participants will be better able to:

List the hazards associated with interior finishes, decorative materials, and trims.

Explain the differences in terminology.

List the various options for providing increased flame resistance.

Identify appropriate tests used to determine the safety of interior finishes.

2015 IBC USE OF FIRE AND SMOKE SEPARATIONS – 3 hours

This seminar identifies the many and varied conditions identified in the IBC where fire and/or smoke separations are required. The discussion will focus on those required locations where fire-resistance-rated wall and horizontal assemblies, as well as smoke-resistive wall and horizontal assemblies are either required by the IBC or utilized by design professionals as alternative approaches to code compliance. Such locations include the selective or mandated use of fire walls, fire barriers, fire partitions, smoke barriers, horizontal assemblies and other separation elements.

Specific topics include:

    • Separated occupancies
    • Control areas
    • Incidental use areas
    • Institutional and residential occupancies
    • Exitways
    • Smoke compartments
    • Fire areas
    • Separate buildings
    • Shaft enclosures

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion, participants will be better able to:

Identify the general types of fire and smoke separators.

Identify those specific components that make up the fire and smoke separations.

Determine where separations are required.

Determine where separations are permitted as alternatives to other requirements.
