If you have been following this blog for a while you are likely familiar with T ratings. If you aren’t, you can check them out here. If you already know about T ratings, you can skip that link if you prefer.
I cant tell you how many projects I have been involved with that don’t adhere to the T-rating requirements in the building code. People say, “We’ve never done that before.”, too which I historically responded with, it’s been in the codes since before the IBC (which was adopted in 2000- I believe the city of Phoenix was the first to adopt the new code.) but the T rating requirements existed before the IBC. What I didn’t know was WHEN were they first introduced and why. That is until I met Glenn!
If you have been following this blog, you likely know that I am a total code geek?
Well so is this guy, Glenn. He takes it to a whole new level because he has a stash of old code cooks. That makes him the perfect guy when you have a question about code history. I wanted to know when T ratings first came into the codes. Glenn was able to tell me. Check out this awesome video he shared if you want to know for yourself.
