    The dreaded "flung dung" fire resistive coating...

    Honestly, I don't know if I'd go "most common." Can we settle on "common?"
    The low bid fire resistive coating is made in China by Yew Flung Dung industries.

    True. I think we can agree though that coating the members themselves is the most common way of doing this.

    Agreed with the chief. The structural members themselves need to have a protective coating.

    Hey guys, a couple clarification questions...

    1) If the bar joists in a non combustible building are protected by a suspended ceiling is the building considered to be fire resistive?

    2)If a non combustible (bar joist and block) building is fully protected with a sprinkler system then is the building classified as fire resistive.

    Thanks
    No and no.
