 Metl-Span has released a comprehensive technical digest titled Fire Resistant Wall and Ceiling Construction to help builders understand the use of its ThermalSafe panels in fire-resistant wall and ceiling applications. It offers considerations for a variety of materials, and their suitability for different types of construction and general assembly details. According to Vice President of Marketing Doug Pickens, “This digest defines fire-resistant construction, as well as who determines the requirements for fire-resistant construction and how it is measured. It explains basic requirements for fire walls, exterior and interior barrier walls and ceilings, and outlines all of the penetration fire stop systems specifically designed for use with Metl-Span ThermalSafe panels.” Metl-Span offers UL and Intertek certified ThermalSafe fire-resistant insulated panels for most fire resistant one, two and three-hour rated non-load bearing wall applications, 1½- hour fire resistant rated ceilings, and fire resistanc- rated door and window assemblies.
