Can anyone tell me if the Florida Building Code requires the door between
the garage and and the living area in a single family residence be fire
rated. If it does, can you site the section. Thanks in advance.
IRC R 309 deals with garages and carports.
It requires "no less than 1/2" gypsum board on the garage side" of the
It requires 1 3/8" solid wood door, solid or honeycomb core steel door,
or 20 min. fire rated door.
Thanks. That's what I was looking for. Does the IRC require a "label" on a
solid wood door or honeycomb core steel door. I assume not since the final
option mentioned is a rated door which one assumes is "labeled."
