    The new wizard is actually pretty easy to use: http://database.ul.com/cgi-bin/ulweb/LISEXT/1FRAME/FireResistanceWizard.html . You only end up flipping through about a dozen assemblies, instead of all of them.

    much easier to use the US Gypsum Association’s Fire Resistance Design Manual.

    If that’s too much, a call to USG’s tech hot line gets the job done too.

    3M also has good information. Especially for penetrations.

    One thing you can do is save the images from whoever’s website and insert them right into a drawing.


    You’ll never or rarely ever have a question from a plan reviewer about what ‘s involved with a rated assembly.

    As Sarah mentioned, UL has a new online fire resistance design selection tool called the ULtimate Fire Wizard. The Wizard can be accessed at http://www.ul.com/firewizard. If you have not already done so, I strongly encourage you to check it out. The Wizard allows you to input details on your project through a series of pull-down menus and keywords. It then searches the UL database for matching designs. After reviewing the matching designs, the search results can be saved in a Design List for later retrieval.
