<blockquote> For this construction category, columns were required to 
have a 2 h rating as established by the Standard Fire Test (ASTM E 119); 
beams were required to have a 1½ h rating.  The instructions to the 
bidders for the WTC 7 job were to bid on a 3 h rating for the columns 
and a 2 h rating for the metal deck and floor support steel, which 
corresponded to the more stringent fire resistance requirements for Type 
1B (unsprinklered) construction.  These ratings were to be achieved by 
application of Monokote MK-5, a gypsum-based SFRM that contained a 
vermiculite aggregate.  According to the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 
Fire Resistance Directory (1983), these ratings required a thickness of 
22 mm (7/8 in.) of Monokote MK-5 to be applied to the heavy columns, 48 
mm (1 7/8 in.) to be applied to the lighter columns, 13 mm (1/2 in.) to 
be applied to the beams, and 10 mm (3/8 in.) to be applied to the bottom 
of the metal deck.  Private inspectors found that the applied SFRM 
thicknesses were consistent with these values</blockquote>
