Description

This report details research into the fire loads that are applicable to office type occupancies in New Zealand, as well as identifying a methodology for carrying out fire load surveys that can be applied to other occupancies. 

A standard fire test may not always be representative of an actual fire in a building, with alternative methods for estimating the real gas 'time-temperature' available. In the predication of fire severity using these methods, many designers in New Zealand rely greatly on fire load data from Europe and the United States. 

A survey of the fire loads in several New Zealand insurance offices has been carried out for comparison with data from overseas. Recommendation have been made in this report, based on the findings from this survey. A methodology for carrying out fire load surveys that can be applied to other types of occupancy has been identified.
