building codes
Building Codes
  • ICBO wrote the Uniform Building Code
  • BOCA wrote the National Building Code
  • SBCCI wrote the Standard Building Code
  • ICC writes the International Building Code
  • NFPA writes the NFPA 5000 Building Code
  • Local jurisdiction determines which code adoption
evaluation services
Evaluation Services
  • ICBO ES (Evaluation Service) evaluates products for compliance to the Uniform Building Code – old way
  • BOCA ES evaluates products for compliance to the National Building Code – old way
  • SBCCI ES evaluates products for compliance to the Standard Building Code – old way
  • ICC ES evaluates products for compliance to the International Building Code – NEW WAY
grease and air ducts requirements by code body
Grease and Air DuctsRequirements by Code Body

Note: AC 101 is a more severe test than UL 1978 because of

the thermocouple placement and

fire test temperature

codes and standards update
Air Ducts Today

SBCCI and BOCA ES legacy reports for Eastern US

ICBO and ICC ES have no current acceptance criteria available

OPL/UL listings to ISO 6944 are a potential option

Air Ducts Tomorrow

AC 176 is the ICC ES acceptance criteria currently under development (based on ISO 6944)

Codes and Standards Update

Note: ISO 6944 is a more severe test than ASTM E 119 because a vacuum

is placed on the duct, no hose stream and time temperature curve is different.

codes and standards update1
Grease Ducts Today

ICBO, SBCCI and BOCA ES legacy reports for all US where IBC has not been adopted

For IBC areas, ICC ES is using AC 101 as a basis

Grease Ducts Tomorrow

ASTM E 2336 and/or UL 2221 (not exactly the same) will be the standard

Testing will be done at UL/OPL to receive listings

Above standards will be referenced in the building codes thus eliminating the need for ES reports

Codes and Standards Update
code example
Proposed new verbiage in NFPA 96 (Grease Duct Code)……

"4.3.1 Field-applied grease duct enclosures and factory-built grease duct enclosures shall be listed in accordance with UL 2221, Standard for Tests of Fire Resistive Grease Duct Enclosure Assemblies, or ASTM E2336, Standard Test Methods for Fire Resistive Grease Duct Enclosure Systems and installed in accordance with the manufacturers’ instructions and the listing requirements."

Code Example
building code summary
Building Code Summary
  • ICBO ES, BOCA ES, and SBCCI ES do not exist today
  • Current ICBO ES, BOCA ES, and SBCCI ES Evaluation Reports can be converted to ICC ES “legacy” reports for use where local jurisdiction has not adopted IBC
  • New duct wrap approvals must comply with the ICC ES requirements because the old ES do not exist anymore
what does this mean to firestop contractors
What does this mean to firestop contractors?
  • More flexible wrap product will be used because, due to current product technology, it takes two layers of product to pass AC 101. Also, contract dollar amounts will increase with added material and labor costs in order to comply
  • The use of flexible wrap will increase as the use of rigid shaft enclosures decreases because there will be a standard in place that they cannot comply to
  • Clearance issues will lend itself to flexible wraps
firestop contractors opportunities
Firestop Contractors Opportunities
  • Markets – Where to look for work?
    • Restaurants – McDonalds, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, etc.
    • Facilities with food service – schools, hospitals, etc.
    • Facilities with chemical exhaust – schools, factories, pharmaceuticals, etc.
    • Facilities with rated air ducts – apartment buildings, hotels, stadiums, convention centers, etc.
