Glazing Protection in Rated Walls

Is there an accepted or listed method of protecting non-rated glass (tempered) in a rated partition? We have lots of situations where architects want to use glass walls to separate tenant space in multi-tenant offices. These partitions could be either 1 hour or 2 hour rated. We're asked to install a water curtain along the glass wall, but I don't see any code permitting this installation other than for a smoke barrier.
