Fireblock- Understanding     "or approved material"

The building codes list an array of materials that can be used as a fireblock. Those three words, "or approved material" can cause a great deal of confusion. This training will help you understand the code requirements, how to review submittals and what all those fire test standards mean, even the modified versions.

This whole training came about at the request of an arson investigator who saw ONE MORE fire where products were misapplied and misunderstood.
