    Default Seperation between garage and sleeping above

    The building code requires that the garage be seperated by 1 hour seperation from sleeping area above.
    Is there any specific requirement reagrding the amount a air flow (gas fumes) that can penatrate that 1 hour seperation.
    What amount of holes or gaps are allowed and/or is the 1 hour a complete air tight seperation?
    Thanks for your help.

    All of the openings at the ceiling drywall of the garage should be sealed.

    Is there an acceptable level of gas fumes allowed for penetration. NO

    I agree with Rick,


    super heated gases from the fire can spread through a tiny gap and need to be repaired.
