OBC 2024: Firestop changes in requirements for penetrations, joints, and curtain walls.
The 2020 edition of the National Building Code of Canada (""NBCC 2020""), issued in the spring of 2022, includes 15 substantial changes to the requirements for firestopping in fire rated walls and floors. This session will explain each of the changes, and how specifications, installation and inspection of firestopping need to change when the province adopts the new national code.  
The specific code language in the new national model code will be reviewed in detail. The legalese of each code article will be explained in plain language. The impact of each revised or new code article on construction details will be explained, using photos, drawings and short video snippets where helpful.
