Fire Safety Strategies is a four-part e-book that takes a multifaceted look at fire behavior in buildings and designing for occupant safety. Recent high-rise fires around the world have shown professionals must be vigilant against potential fire hazards. This curated collection of technical articles from The Construction Specifier explores:

  • how ineffective curtain wall design, perimeter void fire protections, or inadequate spandrel protection can allow fire to spread to adjacent floors at the exterior walls;
  • questions to ask when specifying fire-rated glazing in doors;
  • fire resistance of wall assemblies viewed in the context of materials, layers, and performance; and
  • how fire protection engineers and computer modeling can play an integral role in design and commissioning of smoke control systems.
