Home control standards for handling firewalls are somewhat confused. Although home audits and firewall building code concerns are not really crossed, they are not even synchronized. A firewall is an implementation that wishes to satisfy your wishes twice.
The motivation of home audits in the practice of firewalls is not to make sure that building rules have been followed much, but to determine if double wish is enforced. The first part of this desire is to prevent exhaust gases, especially carbon monoxide, from exhaust gases from the garage. The second part is based on the assumption that home fires are best suited to ignite in the garage; if this is the time, we want to isolate the fire in the garage or at least delay its propagation in the right house to allow passengers, especially children, enough time to evacuate.
The abstract concept of the firewall is thus one that realizes both parts of the protective desire. Building codes determine the way the abstract idea is implemented and the years of practice in determining the codes to determine whether they achieve the alleged goals.
Home control standards essentially override building codes and come directly to the question. It is stated that the home inspector must investigate the fire choice between the house and the (attached) garage. The accepted interpretation of "fire selection" is that a fire begins in a fire, and the other place is only after one or two hours of delay. In addition, the time difference must take all possible paths, both through the windows and through the doors, and indirectly through the ceiling and the attic.
Obviously, it is not possible to measure the delay of fire penetration at home control. Therefore, the home supervisor must move away from the abstract idea and use guides that translate certain building practices and materials into the expected penetration delays. As far as practicing inspectors is concerned, there are concerns about the thickness of the pedestrian doors between the garage and the house and the thickness of the gypsum board.
Housekeepers can check that the walker door (s) is a solid core and fire rating. A fire door is usually a label located on the side of the door where the hinges are mounted. Control standards leave the fire rating requirement if the tag does not exist. In any case, the solid core and fire rating results in a satisfactory expected penetration delay.
The corresponding plasterboard thickness on both walls and ceilings was empirically determined to be half an inch. Indeed, home inspectors can not reliably measure this, though dry walls are sometimes exposed to unfinished spaces and the attic. Building regulations and control standards are incorporated here, so if your home is undergoing proper channels, the inspector can reasonably be sure architects have checked the thickness of the gypsum board.
The codes for commercial buildings and multi-family homes require the additional requirement that the inter-unit walls should pass through the attic through the roof. This requirement does not apply to family houses, even between the garage and the house . The garages are usually enclosed in the attic or attic from the attic of the house, but the author has always been wide open in both areas.
