Fire Rated Product Specialties Corp ABOUT US FRPS is the premier manufacturer of code compliant fire-rated enclosures and related products for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and low voltage devices in one hour and two hour rated assemblies.
Fire Rated Product Specialties Corp WHY TODAY? WHY NOW? Several recent events this decade have brought passive fire protection to the forefront: Hurricane Katrina, Louisiana 9-11, The Twin Towers, New York City MGM Grand Hotel Fire, Las Vegas
Fire Rated Product Specialties Corp CODE REQUIREMENTS The 2009 International Building Code (IBC) Chapter 7 for membrane penetrations in fire-resistance ratings states: The fire-resistance rating of building elements shall be determined on accordance with the test procedures set forth in ASTM E-119 or in accordance with Section Where materials, systems or devices that have not been tested as part of a fire-resistance-rated assembly are incorporated into the assembly, sufficient data shall be made available to the building official to show that the required fire-resistance rating is not reduced. Materials and methods of construction used to protect joints and penetrations in fire-resistance-rated building elements shall not reduce the required fire-resistance rating.
Fire Rated Product Specialties Corp FIRE DRAFTING DETAIL NO!YES!
Fire Rated Product Specialties Corp FAQs 1.Why 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 with section or Where assemblies are required to have a minimum 1-hour fire-resistance rating, all fixtures or devices shall be installed such that the required fire resistance of these assemblies will not be reduced. 2. Why cant I use a drywall enclosure? Site-constructed drywall enclosures are subject to the widest variations in quality of installation and consequently performance. Those who build these drywall versions may not understand or appreciate the importance of the function of 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 job site. 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 # (i.e. W/N Listing No for FRPS products).
