National Gypsum Company is launching their latest technical resource, The Wood Book, at the INTEX Expo and online. Featuring detailed fire-rated assemblies for multiple wood-frame construction projects, The Wood Book is an invaluable resource for architects, contractors and building inspectors. If you are unsure if this resource will be useful for your next build, here are a few reasons you should download your copy today.

UL Designs and Connection Details Provide the Basis of Design

Across almost 150 pages, The Wood Book gives readers detailed information and designs they can directly implement in wood-frame construction. These designs are fire-rated, meaning architects can use them as the basis of design for wood-frame projects, and inspectors can be confident in their effectiveness.ASW | PURPLE eXP

The Wood Book includes the following designs:

  • Wood-frame walls
  • Floor-ceiling and roof-ceiling assemblies
  • Head-of-wall and rim joist details for the intersections of walls and floor-ceiling assemblies
  • Multiple options for mechanical, elevator and stair shaft enclosures


Designs are Applicable to Multiple Project Types

The fire-rated assemblies found in The Wood Book are tested and rated for use in multiple wood-frame constructions, including duplexes, townhouses, and multifamily and light commercial projects. This versatility allows you to use the guide on multiple projects, saving you from finding additional resources or information.
