SECTION 706 - CONSTRUCTION JOINTS

A construction joint, for the purpose of this section and Sections 709.8 and 710.6, is a division of a building that allows independent movement of the building, in any plane, which may be caused by thermal, seismic, wind loading or any other load. Construction joints installed in fire-resistive walls required to have protected openings or in fire-resistive floors or floor-ceiling assemblies shall be protected with an approved material or construction assembly designed to provide the same degree of fire resistance as the floor or wall in which it is installed when tested in accordance with U.B.C. Standard 7-1. See Section 703.2.

Such material or construction assembly shall be securely installed in or on the joint for its entire length so as not to dislodge, loosen or otherwise impair its ability to accommodate expected building movements and to resist the spread of fire and hot gases.
