Codes & Standards Discussion Forum 

Welcome to the ICC Codes & Standards Discussion Forum

The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.

Yes, 708 does help. However, I only make reference to concealed spaces, I guess I am looking for more of a code definition. My situation is this; I have a small office with a suspened ceiling (at 9'') in a large HT warehouse (roof deck at 22''). Official states that the area above this office is concealed. This is true if you are in the office, you will not see the roof deck above. However, you step outside the office area, you can easlily see the roof deck (plus all the supension wires for the office ceiling). Any thoughts? Thanks

Section 201.1 of the 1997 UBC tells how to determine the meaning of words not specifically defined in the code.
What does the code official want you to do with this space? Might be kind of hard to fireblock. I would call it concealed only if your office walls extended all the way to the warehouse roof.
