Design

Use of structural fire retardant wood is not allowed. However, all walls of telecommunications closets shall be covered with three-quarter inch A-C grade fire retardant plywood, painted with two coats light colored, non-conductive fire retardant paint. The plywood shall extend from the floor to eight (8) feet above the finished floor, and shall be mounted with the “A” side exposed.

Use pressure treated wood for blocking where moisture may be encountered, such as below grade locations and roof locations.
