Summary
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the fire-protection F- and T-ratings of selected fire stops and sealing joints in cross-laminated timber assemblies, in accordance with CAN/ULC S115 test method, “Standard Method of Fire-Tests of Firestop System”. Recommendations are given in this report with respect to proper detailing to ensure that the tested closure devices, when used in mass timber plate construction, will perform as expected. It is noted that test data is to date limited, and further testing may result in revision of these recommendations.
