Local building codes, which require fire-safe construction for many building applications, rely on two ratings to evaluate compliance:
 Flame spread rating of material
 Fire-resistance rating of a construction assembly

These ratings are based on ASTM standards, and compliance is determined by several independent, nongovernmental testing services such as Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.

Flame spread and fire-resistance ratings are two separate issues, and they must be addressed independently in selection and specification. Click here for more information about fire performance.

Selecting the Right UL Fire-Rated Assembly
1.  Establish the hourly rating needed to meet code requirements
2.  Determine the existing or planned building elements, including structural, mechanical, electrical and finish materials, in the fire-rated assembly.
3.  Refer to UL Fire Resistive Ceiling Assemblies for additional information, or contact TechLine for assistance.
