    Hi,

    If a RSJ is fully enclosed in a wall, does it need additional fire protection, or is 12.5mm Plasterboard + skim sufficient, as when a beam is enclosed within a ceiling?

    cheers!

    If you mean it's brick/blocked around, then yes that's fine without anything else.

    Thanks for the reply, sorry should have said it's a stud wall that encompasses the rsj.
