Exposed Wood Beams

Discussion created by Carl Nestor on Feb 6, 2017

Where do i find the requirement(s) for the classification of exposed wood beams in a two story business occupancy. The contractor wants to spray the exposed ceiling with a flat black paint and is questioning whether it needs to be a flame resistant paint. The building does have sprinkler protection but does it still need to have a class B or C finish? This is becoming common in revamping these old downtown properties.
