    We are now designing our room for 2007 thanks to the building inspector. Does anybody have any advice on building walls? We were planning on building a modular wall system out of two by fours and plywood. Is this the general process for a haunt that must be disasembled and stored? What size plywood would be appropriate? 1/2", 3/8"? Could we get by with 2x2's instead of 2x4's? Does it matter in regards to code?
    Also we were told to fireproof everything. Is this a special paint or just an additive? Does anyone have source for the fireproofing material? Any advice would be appreciated.

    We build all our walls out of 2x4's and 1/2" plywood, sometimes double sheeted. This is because our customers like to go through them. If we built it with the 2x2 oe 2x3 and 1/4" luan plans that some people use, our haunt would fall apart in about an hour. We have about 1100 walls built like this and they take up about 7 semi trucks, along with the other 8 full of props. All we are required to do is spray everything down if fire proofing liquid, no special paints or anything, but it all depends on where you are and who is inspecting you. Everyone seems to have to do something diffrent to satisfy their inspector.

    There is fire retardant spray you can get. I have fibre glass walls which are specially made panels and assemble quickly and can be used time and time again. Until the fire regulations change and what was once safe isn't due to another report. Check your area as it varies!

    Use this for fabrics and ones with wallpaper

    Check out N.Y. fire shield or Oak Island Entertainment group for the spray on stuff, works great!

    Good website provided - Love the large costumes - I am always on the prowl for unusual goodies and it is difficult to source things from here.
