Firestopping is well defined and mandated in the major building and safety codes.
The codes are not static documents and typically change throughout a three year cycle, and accordingly STI Firestop has recently updated our guide document to reflect the most recent version of each building (INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE – IBC; 2015 EDITION) and safety code (NFPA 101, LIFE SAFETY CODE; 2015 EDITION). This is designed as a reference chart that assists users in quickly finding the relevant code requirement. It is not intended to take the place of the code.
Always refer to the individual building or safety code and when in doubt, verify requirements with the local authority having jurisdiction.
