184.108.40.206 Where the term limited-combustible is used in this Code, it shall also include the term noncombustible. [5000:220.127.116.11.5] Submitter’s Substantiation: NFPA 220 is an extract document of NFPA 5000, The Building Construction and Safety Code. During the ROC stage, NFPA 5000 revised and relocated the language for Noncombustible Materials ...
Combustible. Combustible materials are those that readily ignite and burn. Many common construction materials are combustible, including wood and wood-plastic composite and plastic products (commonly used for decking and siding). A number of tests have been developed that evaluate the fire performance of combustible materials.

As architects, engineers, and builders push toward using sustainable, ‘green,’ and cost-effective building materials, National Building Code of Canada’s (NBC’s) tight framework with regard to combustible construction is coming into the spotlight. Combustible and non-combustible construction, and combustible elements in buildings required to be of non-combustible construction, are terms ...
I am a registered FPE and I worked for FM Global for ~15 years.....the small wood frame structure in the center of the picture (45 degree angle) is the definition of limited combustible construction. The wood frame structure in this picture with the above described building construction does not warrant sprinkler protection.

-Fire resistance provides structural integrity during a fire.-Has structural members including walls, columns, beams, floors, and roofs made of noncombustible or limited combustible materials with sufficient fire-resistive ratings that allow those components to withstand the effects of fire and also prevent its spread from floor to floor
Type II Non-Combustible Type II noncombustible construction is a type in which structural elements do not qualify for Type I construction and are of an approved noncombustible or limited combustible material with sufficient fire resistive rating to withstand the effects of fire and prevent its spread from story to story.
Type 3 buildings can be of either new or old construction, and they have non-combustible walls and a wood roof. If operating on one of these buildings, firefighters should be suspect of conventionally framed materials that may be weathered, built-up roofs or roof-on-top-of-roof systems.
