AbstractThis paper presents the factors that affect the fire resistance performance of lightweight, wood-frame, unrestrained floor assemblies protected with Type X gypsum board ceiling finishes. Fire resistance experiments were conducted on 22 full-scale, load-bearing, wood joist floor assemblies using the ULC/ASTM standard fire exposure time-temperature curve. Parameters investigated included: gypsum board screw spacing from board edges, insulation type and installation, joist spacing and depth, resilient channel installation and spacing, sub-floor topping, number of sub-floor layers, and load magnitude.
