Shaft walls are critical elements in the life safety of your building. If you are working on a project with shaft walls, please take the time to watch this video. The truth is, firestop for rated joints is pretty basic, so it is easy to assume its simple work. The truth is, there is a lot that can be done wrong. If you are building gypsum shafts, this is something I see built wrong more often than I see it done right. Please, take the time to watch this video and let me know if you get this right. If you do something different on your projects I would love to hear from you as well.
