I understand that an attic access in a garage needs to be fire rated, usually 5/8" drywall.
But what about pull down attic stairs?
I’ve only seen the ones with plywood on the bottom.
Do they make them with a fire rated bottom?
Are the plywood ones only for interior use? (not the garage)
What do you guys say, or recommend, when you come across this?
Is there an acceptable fix for this situation?
I hate to criticize something without offering a recommendation.
