Application of intumescent paint to structural elements

A client of ours proposed an alternative for passive protection system on stair enclosures by applying intumescent paint to beams and columns surrounding the enclosures. However, the intumescent paint was applied only on primary beam, excluding the secondary beam. Is there any clause in NFPA that explains the application of fire coatings to structural elements?
