Fire Rating Of Garage Walls, Exterior Siding


SoCal area.

Existing garage is four feet away from property line, joining walls to living area already have type X gyp.

Will the CBC/IRC allow T1-11 to be installed, as exterior siding on the garage, without gyp sheathing as a substraight?

Thanks.

Not sure on a reside. Around here on a new garage it will affect the soffit, fascia and roof deck that are in the set-back area (usually 5') as well as the sidewall and will have 1 layer of 5/8 firerock on the interior as well. Just a heads up as its a lot of extra time and materials.

I would give the city your working in a call as they will probably have the final say.

If you are fortunate enough to get the Planning Department to O.K. intruding into the 5' set back, the Building Department will require that BOTH sides of the wall be 1 hr. fire rated.

You have have a difficult time getting the planning department to approve that. However it is worth a try.

Yeah, I've been trying to get someone on the phone from the planning dept. for the past two days. I'm driving through that city shortly, so I might as well just stop in.

I'll keep you guys posted on the city's response, for this specific city.

Thanks for all the responses.

Which city is it?
I have worked with (I think) all the cities on the O.C.
Some will work with you like Buena Park, Orange, Lake Forest, Laguna Niguel, Huntington Beach, etc.
Some will not like, Anaheim, Santa Ana, San Clemente, etc.

Yes, it does need gyp or fire rated siding.

Building clearance<5 or Distance between adjacent building<10.
