Welcome to Just Answer.

There are many UL Designs for a 2-hour rated wall. The UL number represents a type of construction, with specific materials and specific installation requirements. There are many variations, thus many UL numbers.

For example:

UL Des U334, provides a 2-hour rating, with this construction method.

  • 5/8" Sheetrock® Brand Firecode® C Core Gypsum Panels
  • 2x4 wood studs 16" o.c.
  • 2" Thermafiber SAFB
  • RC-1 channel or equivalent one side
  • joints finished
  • graphic
