This presentation will take the confusion out of UL floor/ceiling assemblies. Included will be some history of UL assemblies and recommendations of critical details that often get overlooked. If not implemented correctly, these details could cost you the required UL fire rating. We will provide insight about how insulation can be helpful for sound but ultimately harm your fire rating.
There are many ways to improve sound transmission in floors for STC and IIC. The presentation will cover many options and provide the latest sound-reducing methods as well as the costs associated with the various options.
Learning Objectives - After viewing this webinar, you should be able to:
- Explain how to correctly design a floor/ceiling assembly that meets the UL requirements for a fire rating.
- Identify the three most common construction mistakes that cause a properly floor/ceiling assembly to lose its fire rating.
- Define the key factors in a floor/ceiling assembly that must be included in order to meet Section 1207 for STC and IIC sound transmission.
- Describe the various methods available to improve STC and IIC sound transmission beyond the building code minimum.
