BUILDING CODES & FIRE TESTING - The Building Codes require horizonatl fire-resistance-rated assemblies to be full-scale tested (12' x 14', approx 3m x 4m) with a load applied where a load is expected.  Why?  Small-scale horizontal fire testing does not allow for a load to cause deflection of the assembly.  Small-scale fire testing for horizontal assemblies and without a load applied does not reflect real world conditions and is not safe, unless there is NEVER going to be a load applied in the field.  Learn More
