Select and insert the text into Specification Section 26 51 00 – Interior Lighting or similarly titled section governing this work.
Municipalities across the United States require fire-resistance-rated ceilings, floors, and walls for multi-story residential structures such as apartment buildings, student housing, schools, hospitals or hotels. The 2015 version of the International Building Code (IBC) addresses this issue explicitly in section 714.4.2
Tenmat’s fire-rated enclosures and fire-stopping products have been designed to meet the building code and to help maintain the integrity of fire-resistance rated ceilings when penetrated by recessed lights, LED luminaires, fluorescent fixtures or in-ceiling loudspeakers or walls when penetrated by wires, cables, pipes or mixed penetrations.
