Back5.3.1.1.(2)

ATTRIBUTION:

Most technical provisions of the BC Fire Code describe how the code’s objectives and functional statements are achieved. However, some provisions, like this one, do not relate directly to a code objective. The following analysis is provided to assist in understanding of the provision.

 

APPLICATION:

Materials installed to provide resistance to heat transfer where it can be shown that a lack of resistance to heat transfer will not adversely affect health, safety, the intended use of the building or the operation of building services.
This applies to building materials, components or assemblies and their interfaces described in Sentence 5.1.2.1.(1) that are installed in buildings to which Part 5 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.2.(1) of Division A for application of Part 5].

INTENT:

To exempt situations from the application of Section 5.3., where it can be shown that inadequate control of heat transfer will not adversely affect health, safety, the intended use of the building or the operation of building services.
