Where there is an alteration, extension or material change of use of a building, the period of fire resistance of existing timber floors may need to be increased. This digest explains how periods of up to one hour may be achieved. It discusses the addition of protection to the underside of the ceiling, over the floor boarding and between the joists, and the problems of improving fire Establishes guidelines for the construction of fire resisting structural elements and includes tables of notional periods of fire resistance based on experimental test data; it also makes revisions to tables and text concerning concrete, masonry and timber included in the earlier edition. 39 ://?id=   Simple methods are described for increasing the fire resistance of timber floors and doors in historic buildings to help limit the spread of smoke and heat. The methods are chosen to minimize damage to the appearance of the building and minimize the amount of work necessary to do the upgrading work. Upgrading forms an   Chapter 6, Load-bearing timber structures, introduces the design methods for verification of the structural stability of timber structures in the event of fire, applying the classification for Criterion R for fire resistance (load-bearing function). Reference is made to Eurocode 5 with respect to charring and strength and stiffness ://

How do you provide a 30 or 60 minute fire-rated horizontal membrane; How do you upgrade the fire or acoustic performance of a timber floor from below; What is the fire resistance performance of Gyproc plasterboard; How do you build a fire-rated partition where access is limited to one side only; How do you achieve a fire-rated timber stud partition   Increasing the fire resistance of existing timber floors.

Bringing you a comprehensive selection of legislation, regulations, guidance, standards, including BSI and best practice which is updated daily, you can find documents on a wide range of subject areas such as Food & Drink, Andrew H. Buchanan's research works with 2, citations reads, including: A General Design Approach for Post-tensioned Timber Subassemblies Loadbearing - timber joist floors Internal and separating floor systems. Timber joists are widely used within internal floor and separating floor construction, both in residential and commercial applications. Our range of timber joist floor solutions include cavity insulation, high-performance Gyproc plasterboards and Gypframe sound insulating
