9 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC Navigating UL: THROUGH PENETRATION FIRESTOP SYSTEMS (XHEZ) Numeric Component – first digit identifies the type of penetrant, next three are sequential system numbering = No Penetrant = Metallic pipe, conduit or tubing = Nonmetallic pipe, conduit or tubing = Electrical cables = Cable trays with electrical cables = Insulated pipes = Busways = HVAC ducts = Mixed multiple penetrations = Reserved for future use C-AJ-1079 Individual System Number C-AJ-1079 Penetrant Type

10 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC Finding a Fire-Resistive Joint System

11 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC 1.What type of building assemblies is the joint formed by? –Floor/Floor, Floor/Wall, Wall/Wall, Top of Wall/Ceiling 2.What type of material is the building assembly –Concrete, CMU, Gypsum 3.What is the hourly rating you are looking for? –Assembly rating (1 – 4 hour) 4.How big of a joint is required (inches) 5.How much movement is required? –Must accommodate building movement (% of joint size) 6.Are there any special considerations? –Unique construction condition, environmental exposure

12 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC HW-D-0034 Example 2: UL System - Joints Navigating UL

13 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC Navigating UL: JOINT SYSTEMS (XHBN) First Two Alpha Characters – identify the type of joint system FF=Floor-to-Floor WW=Wall-to-Wall FW=Floor-to-Wall HW=Head-of-Wall HW-D-0034 Barriers That Form The Joint

22 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC Engineering Judgments (EJs) : What are they? When are they acceptable? When are they not appropriate? What are the guidelines?

23 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC

24 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC When are they acceptable? –When tested systems do not exist. –When modifying the application is unrealistic. –When existing test data supports the interpolation. –When the author has experience with and knowledge of the conditions. –When an illustration is provided to aid in installation.

25 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC Sources of Engineering Judgements Manufacturer Third party labs (UL) Fire Protection Engineer Professional Engineer Must be based on sound engineering practice and knowledge of both field application and capabilities of system components

26 Saving Lives Through Passive Fire Protection Saving Lives and Property Through Fire and Smoke Containment ©2004 IFC –According to the International Firestop Council listed firestop systems can be broadened within the context of their originally tested and rated conditions through the careful and restricted application of accepted engineering principles and fire protection testing guidelines.
