Course Description: This program identifies the features and benefits of wood I-joists which explains the prevalence in the market. The program also explains UL fire testing that identified the fire performance failures or light frame floor assemblies which led to changes in the floor protection requirements of the International Residential CodeĀ® (IRC). Those IRC protection requirements are explained. Alternate methods of protecting I-joist assemblies are explained along with the details of acceptable installation of specific assemblies. This program will discuss changes in housing stock and interior contents, and changes in building materials that have posed a challenge for firefighters.
