Since 1973, model building codes such as the IBC and the NEC have referenced the GA-600 Fire Resistance and Sound Control Design Manual as a primary source of fire resistant and sound control rated designs. 

Now, the brand-new 22nd Edition of this invaluable reference is being released as the GA-600 PLUS -- a digital + print combo that gives you instant access to these systems any time ... any place!   You can go right from the table of contents to the section of your choice, and you can download individual pages. 

The brand-new 22nd Edition of the GA-600 features over 150 completely new systems as well as an expanded section on sound control. Altogether it contains over 700 fire- and sound-rated systems, including:

  • Walls and interior partitions
  • Shaft walls and exterior walls
  • Area separation fire walls
  • Floor-ceiling and roof-ceiling systems
  • Horizontal membrane systems
  • Column, beam, girder, and truss protection systems
  • and much more.
