    Default Fire seperation

    In the 2006, the IRC has 309.2 which addresses a seperation using sheetrock.

    In the 2012 IRC, there is no such reference. I can't beleive they would just eliminate it.

    Is there another reference somewhere?

    Thanks.

    Sure it does, its just been moved to "where it belongs", which is Section 302, Fire-Resistant Construction, of Chapter 3, Building Planning.

    See R302.6 Dwelling/garage fire separation, see especially Table R302.6, and see the subsection which preceeds it (R302.5) for openings/penetrations in same.

    Here is free access direct link to R302.6 (& T302.6), 2012 edition of the IRC: Chapter 3 - Building Planning

    It is not unusuall for a model code to be recodified for clarity and organization of subject matter.

    HTH.
