7Fire Rated Product Specialties Corp FAQ’sWhy FRPS enclosures?Fire Compliance is the law. The 2009 IBC Chapter 7 for membrane penetrations in fire-resistance ratings states:“Penetrations of membranes that are part of a fire-resistance-rated horizontal or vertical assembly shall comply withsection or Where assemblies are required to have a minimum 1-hour fire-resistance rating, allfixtures or devices shall be installed such that the required fire resistance of these assemblies will not be reduced.”2. Why can’t I use a drywall enclosure?Site-constructed drywall enclosures are subject to the widest variations in quality of installation and consequentlyperformance. Those who build these drywall versions may not understand or appreciate the importance of the functionof the required enclosure. The drywall option DOES NOT perform, and it is NOT a tested and listed configuration.3. How do FRPS products provide cost savings?FRPS enclosures not only keep you in compliance of the fire code requirements, but they provide substantial cost savings. When using FRPS enclosures, contractors avoid the stacking of trades and the retracing of their steps 3-4 times on a jobsite. This gives them full control of their labor costs and secures bottom line profits.4. How do FRPS enclosures differ from other enclosures?FRPS enclosures have all been FIRE TESTED. Always ask your wholesaler or manufacturer for the fire test listing number. This will ensure that the product has been FIRE TESTED and is APPROVED to be used in the qualified fire rated assembly. "Classified" IS NOT equivalent to "Tested and Approved, Listing # 12345“ (i.e. W/N Listing No for FRPS products).
