Tests have been made to determine for how long a time specific thicknesses of various materials can protect structural components from a rapid buildup of heat, called a standard fire. Based on the tests, these thicknesses and components have been assigned fire ratings. The ratings give the time, in hours, that the various types of construction so protected can withstand a standard fire. Building codes, in turn, indicate the minimum fire ratings that building components should possess, depending on type of building and how the building is used.
