Transom frame sidelite frame assemblies are tested and listed for fire protection in accordance with ul10c and nfpa 252.
Side light in fire rated wall.
The sidelites and transoms however must have a minimum fire protection rating of 45 minutes with hose stream.
The installation of fire resistance rated glazing does not qualify these assemblies for compliance with astm e119 or ul 263.
These wall assembly files are used for planning and estimation purposes for many ul wall types such as fire rated wall assemblies.
In 1 hour fire partitions used as an exit corridors and in a 1 hour smoke barrier the code allows a 20 minute rated door with a vision panel tested without hose stream.
The testing and listing agencies have been testing and rating sidelites including the glazing component to the fire door test standard accordingly.
Under nfpa 80 the side light frame and the glazing in the frame are considered part of the door assembly and are tested to nfpa 252 the fire test standard for doors.
Fire rated systems are critical life safety components and need to be thoroughly reviewed in both the design and construction phases to ensure they meet code requirements.
Fire rated glass testing.
When the code requires fire doors rated 1 hour or more then the sidelites and transoms around that door must be fire resistive and rated to the same standard as the wall itself e g 1 or 2 hour.
Where the fire separation distance is greater than 5 feet the exterior wall needs only be rated from the inside section 705 2.
Fire walls in type v construction of a b e r and several other occupancies may be 2 hour fire walls in type iii and iv construction are required to be constructed of non combustible materials opportunity for wood frame bearing walls on each side of fire wall to meet.
On fire rated transom and or sidelight frames and fire rated window frames steelcraft labeling procedures only control the o a width and or height of the frames based on wall condition.
Where fire protection ratings are required fire protection rated glazing shall be installed.

The amount of allowable or exposed glass is determined by type of glass being used and will vary depending on the hourly rating required.
