Description

BRANZ researchers have been analysing how much fire resistance is needed for external walls in industrial buildings. Results show the Building Code minimum fire-resistance ratings could be reduced for some.

External walls close to property boundaries are commonly fire-rated to help prevent fire spread to a neighbouring property as required by New Zealand Building Code objectives.

 

Scope

This article includes the following chapters:

  • Acceptable Solutions for industrial building design
  • Potential to reduce fire-resistance rating for some
  • Fire severity in industrial buildings
  • Five fire hazard cases analysed
  • Results show differences
  • Help MBIE to consider changes
