1 First Revision No NFPA [ Section No ] Global FR Exterior Nonbearing Walls. Exterior nonbearing walls tested shall be permitted when tested in accordance with, and meeting the conditions of acceptance of, either one of the following: NFPA 285, Standard Fire Test Method for Evaluation of Fire Propagation Characteristics of Exterior Non-Load- Bearing Wall Assemblies Containing Combustible Components, shall be permitted. (1) NFPA 285 (2) FM Approval 4880, Class 1 Fire Rating of Insulated Wall or Wall and Roof/Ceiling Panels, Interior Finish Materials or Coatings and Exterior Wall Systems Submittal Date: Tue Jul 28 15:09:36 EDT 2015 Response Message: This proposed code change offers a nationally accepted fire test (ANSI/FM 4880) as an alternative to NFPA 285. As evidenced by a peer reviewed journal article (SFPE) and Phase 1 of an FPRF study, ANSI/FM 4880 is a more stringent test than NFPA 285 so there is no reason to question the adequacy of ANSI/FM ANSI/FM 4880 is already referenced in H Public Input No. 190-NFPA [Section No ] Page 1

2 First Revision No NFPA [ Section No ] Enclosed Parking Structures with Occupancies Above. A basement or first story above grade plane of a building shall be considered as a separate and distinct building for the purpose of determining the limitation on number of stories and construction type, provided that all of the following conditions are met: (1) The basement or first story above grade plane shall be of Type I construction and shall be separated from the building above with a horizontal assembly having a minimum 3-hour fire resistance rating. (2) Shaft, stairway, ramp, or escalator enclosures through the horizontal assembly shall comply with either of the following conditions: (a) (b) The enclosures shall have not less than a 2-hour fire resistance rating with opening protectives in accordance with Table Where the walls below the horizontal assembly have a minimum 3-hour fire resistance rating with opening protectives as required for walls forming a 3-hour fire barrier, the enclosure walls extending above the horizontal assembly shall be permitted to have a 1-hour fire resistance rating, provided that all of the following conditions are met: i. The building above the horizontal assembly is not required to be of Type I construction. ii. iii. The enclosure connects less than four stories above the horizontal assembly. The enclosure opening protectives above the horizontal assembly have a minimum 1-hour fire protection rating. (3) The building above the horizontal assembly shall contain only business, mercantile, storage, or residential occupancies or assembly occupancies having an assembly room with an occupant load of less than 300. (4) The building below the horizontal assembly shall be an enclosed or open parking structure used for the parking and storage of private motor vehicles, unless otherwise permitted by the following: (a) (b) Entry lobbies, mechanical rooms, and similar uses incidental to the operation of the building shall be permitted. Business, mercantile, and assembly occupancies having an assembly room with an occupant load of less than 300 shall be permitted in addition to those uses incidental to the operation of the building (including storage areas), provided that the entire structure below the horizontal assembly is protected throughout by an approved, electrically supervised automatic sprinkler system installed in accordance with NFPA 13. (5) The maximum building height in feet shall not exceed the limits set forth in Table for the least restrictive type of construction involved. Page 2

3 Submittal Date: Tue Jul 28 15:36:11 EDT 2015 The committee agrees with the change but for the main reason that it clarifies the intent of the code. Public Input No. 43-NFPA [Section No ] Page 3

4 First Revision No NFPA [ Section No ] Residential Sprinkler Increase. For buildings classified as residential occupancies provided with an approved, electrically supervised automatic sprinkler system in accordance with NFPA 13R, the allowable height for nonsprinklered buildings shall be permitted to be increased by 20 ft (6100 mm 6.1 m ), and the allowable number of stories for nonsprinklered buildings shall be permitted to be increased by one story, provided that the building height does not exceed 60 ft (18 m) in height above grade plane, and the number of stories above grade plane does not exceed four. Submittal Date: Tue Jul 28 15:38:30 EDT 2015 Intent of the revision is to correlate the revised wording in the 2013 edition of NFPA 13R under its Scope 1.1 with NFPA Codes that reference NFPA 13R. Correlation of the NFPA 5000 with the scope of NFPA 13R will make the codes user friendly and will not leave room for misinterpretation of the requirements for application of NFPA 13R NFPA 13R Section 1.1 now states: "This standard shall cover the design and installation of automatic sprinkler systems for protection against fire hazards in residential occupancies up to and including four stories in height in buildings not exceeding 60 ft (18 m) in height above grade plane." Public Input No. 11-NFPA [Section No ] Page 4

5 First Revision No NFPA [ Section No. A ] A The system of designating types of construction also includes a specific breakdown of the types of construction through the use of arabic numbers. These arabic numbers follow the roman numeral notation where identifying a type of construction [e.g., Type I(442), Type II(111), Type III(200)] and indicate the fire resistance rating requirements for certain structural elements as follows: (1) First arabic number exterior bearing walls (2) Second arabic number columns, beams, girders, trusses and arches, supporting bearing walls, columns, or loads from more than one floor (3) Third arabic number floor construction Where Table references floor/ceiling assemblies or roof/ceiling assemblies, the term assembly refers to a combination of materials comprising the walking surface of the floor or the exterior surfaces of the roof, horizontal supporting construction and possibly the ceiling membrane. Typically, such assemblies include the walking surface of the floor or the exterior surfaces of the roof and all horizontal structural members (elements) supporting the walking surface of the floor or the exterior surfaces of the roof. Where the assembly has a fire resistance rating, cavity insulation, ceiling membrane layers affixed or suspended from the underside of the horizontal structural members (elements), and any required opening protection for penetrations such as, but not limited to, recessed lights, HVAC diffusers, penetrating cables, or pipes are regulated. See 8.6 for requirements governing horizontal assemblies having a fire resistance rating. See Section (1) for horizontal assemblies not having a fire resistance rating. Table A provides a comparison of the types of construction for various model building codes. Table A Cross-Reference of Building Construction Types NFPA 5000 I(442) I(332) II(222) II(111) II(000) III(211) III(200) IV(2HH) V(111) V(000) UBC I FR II FR II 1 hr II N III 1 hr III N IV HT V 1 hr V N B/NBC 1A 1B 2A 2B 2C 3A 3B 4 5A 5B SBC I II IV 1 hr IV UNP V 1 hr V UNP III VI 1 hr VI UNP IBC IA IB IIA IIB IIIA IIIB IV VA VB UBC: Uniform Building Code.

6 Submittal Date: Tue Jul 28 15:50:06 EDT 2015 Response Message: The added wording will assist users in understanding what is meant by the term assembly. Public Input No. 185-NFPA [Section No. A ] Page 6

7 7 First Revision No NFPA [ Section No. D ] D Plenums. Plenums shall be permitted to be used to supply air to the occupied area, or return and exhaust air from the occupied area, provided that the requirements through NFPA 90A are met. Submittal Date: Tue Jul 28 15:54:38 EDT 2015 Response Message: The referenced sections through do not exist within NFPA Those provisions were removed in the 2012 edition but the corresponding changes to Annex D were not made. This corrects that oversight. Public Input No. 71-NFPA [Section No. D ] Page 7
