Guide Information for Fire-resistance Ratings

715.2715.5715.5.1715.5.2715.5.4715.5.5715.5.7715.5.7.1715.5.8715.5.8.1

USE

This category covers fire-resistance-rated glazing materials investigated for use in fire-resistance designs as detailed in Fire-resistance Ratings - ANSI/UL 263 (BXUV). The glazing materials have been investigated for use in specified fire-resistive floor-ceiling, wall and/or partition constructions with respect to (1) construction details, (2) maximum size of individual glazing panels, and (3) for wall or partition constructions, the maximum aggregate area of glazing panels per 100 sq ft of wall area as described in the individual design illustrations. The glazing material provides the insulation properties for compliance with the temperature rise requirement of the Standard Test Method.

Details of the wall-opening framing for the fire-resistance-rated glazing material and installation of the glazing material within the framed openings are described in the individual design illustrations.

PRODUCT MARKINGS

Glazing materials bear a marking as described in ANSI/NFPA 5000 (2006), "Building Construction and Safety Code," and the 2006 edition of the "International Building Code." The marking includes the following information:

The UL symbol with the word "CLASSIFIED" above the UL symbol
Manufacturer name or identification
ANSI/UL 263
W - xxx
Where "W" indicates the glazing material is suitable for use in fire barriers and "xxx" indicates the fire-resistance rating in minutes
