ICC-ES committee votes down proposed changes to fire-resistant glazing criteria
The International Code Council (ICC)-ES Technical Committee voted down proposed modifications of a certain Acceptance Criteria regarding alternatives to fire-resistance-rated glazing.
The criteria, AC385, is used to “evaluate the use of special-purpose sprinkler heads with fixed glazed window assemblies to provide an alternative to a two-hour, nonload-bearing, fire-resistance-rated wall assembly required for interior fire barriers or exterior walls in accordance with the International Building Code,” according to the ICC.
The committee voted 6-1 to disapprove the proposed changes to AC385, which would have allowed the use of a special Tyco sprinkler system on tempered glass as an alternative to two-hour fire-resistance rated glazing, or other two-hour rated construction materials, in exit walls, according to code consultant Thomas Zaremba of Roetzel & Andress.
It would also have allowed the use of such sprinkler systems as an alternative to two-hour walls in partially-, as opposed to fully-, “sprinklered” buildings.
In the 2012 IBC development cycle, Zaremba joined other industry members to propose a code change adopted in 2012, which became what is currently IBC section 703.4. “Basically, it says that you cannot use an automatic sprinkler or suppression device to establish a fire-resistant rating under ASTM e119,” says Zaremba.
When the ICC-ES learned of the adoption, it issued notices that it would withdraw AC385. Representatives of Tyco made an effort to get the dec...
