For SI: 1 foot = 304.8 mm.
a.Roof supports: Fire-resistance ratings of primary structural frame and bearing walls are permitted to be reduced by 1 hour where supporting a roof only.
b.Except in Group F-1, H, M and S-1 occupancies, fire protection of structural members in roof construction shall not be required, including protection of primary structural frame members, roof framing and decking where every part of the roof construction is 20 feet or more above any floor immediately below. Fire-retardant-treated wood members shall be allowed to be used for such unprotected members.
c.In all occupancies, heavy timber complying with Section 2304.11 shall be allowed where a 1-hour or less fire-resistance rating is required.
d.Not less than the fire-resistance rating required by other sections of this code.
e.Not less than the fire-resistance rating based on fire separation distance (see Table 602).
f.Not less than the fire-resistance rating as referenced in Section 704.10.
The provisions of this chapter shall control the classification of buildings as to type of construction.
