The 19th Edition of the Gypsum Association's flagship publication depicts over 390 systems that may be used for:
- Fire-rated walls and partitions
- Floor/ceiling systems
- Roof/ceiling systems
- And to protect columns, beams, and girders
Included for the first time in this edition are several new floor and roof ceiling systems and double-stud steel partition designs.
The Fire Resistance Design Manual provides contractors, designers, specifiers, owners, and others with a convenient compilation of the latest in tested gypsum-board designed fire-rated protection systems (as well as some tried and true older systems that have been with us for quite awhile). It also helps building officials keep up with fire-rated gypsum board systems that are permitted under the codes.
If you need information on designing for fire resistance using easily obtainable gypsum board, you need this practical guide!
