The Redwood Empire Chapter of CSI will be continuing in our vow to build knowledge and fulfill your professional potential by inviting you to our monthly dinner meetings where we focus on our chapter business, social networking, and offering an educational presentation. John Guill, FCSI, CCS, CCA, SCIP, AIA, IIBEC, and an honored RECSI member, will be presenting "Tame the Flame" an educational presentation that features how to navigate the NFPA 285 code requirement.
NFPA 285 is the Standard Fire Test Method for Evaluation of Fire Propagation Characteristics of Exterior Wall Assemblies Containing Combustible Components. Recent code revisions for energy conservation have prompted greater use of flammable insulation materials in new construction. Numerous high-profile fire disasters resulting in loss of life have caused greater regulation and testing for these energy-efficient assemblies. You won't want to feel the heat so don't miss it!On completion of this presentation, attendees will be able to…
- Explain Model Building Code Requirements for Fire Propagation of Exterior Wall Assemblies.
- Explain requirements of code-mandated test methods for materials' fire propagation properties and how these factors affect the selection of products.
- Develop a code check procedure to identify requirements for construction materials and cladding assemblies.
- Review some example proposed construction assemblies and materials selection to evaluate code compliance.
