  Passive fire and protection

We have produced two fire guides that cover Passive Fire Protection in Buildings and Acceptable Solutions: Protection from Fire.

The Passive Fire Protection in Buildings guide identifies the requirements of the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC), explains the terminology commonly used and identifies the main building components that have a passive fire role.

The Acceptable Solutions: Protection from Fire guide should be used in conjunction with Acceptable Solutions C/AS-1, as reference is made to various paragrapgs within the document.
