    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives guidance for designers and the building construction team incorporating ventilation and air conditioning ductwork into new and existing buildings other than premises covered by BS 5908. Specifies the code applied anew if physical alterations are made to an existing building, even if such alterations are not structural. Describes noncombustible building services ducts, and ductwork manufactured from metal and/or rigid mineral based components exhibiting high integrity when exposed to fully developed fire conditions, resistance to penetration by flame, an ability to exclude or contain fire. Describes precautions to prevent the spread of fire and smoke and other byproducts of combustion within a building.
