DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS Fire Resistance The Partiwall ® system has been fire tested at CSIRO’s laboratory at North Ryde in Sydney. The performance of various system configurations has been assessed in CSIRO’s assessment number FSV 0381, FCO-2256, FCO-2713, FCO-1446 and FCO-2016. The Partiwall system provides Fire Resistance Levels (FRL) of 60/60/60 and 90/90/90. In the case of a fire, the structural adequacy and load bearing capacity is provided by the wall frame on the other side of SHAFTLINER™ fire barrier. As the primary fire barrier (the SHAFTLINER panels) is located in the cavity between the frames, the system permits easy inclusion of services such as water and waste pipes, electrical and communications cables, as long as the primary barrier is not penetrated. Service penetrations are allowed through SHAFTLINER fire barrier in the roof space subject to Certifier's approval (refer Installation Details). The following penetrations, individually or in combinations, or back-to-back, are allowed in the outer linings and are not required to be fire rated: Normal residential electrical switches and power points Data, communications or electrical cables passing through the linings into the cavity Copper, galvanized steel, or plastic water or wastewater pipes of up to 50mm nominal diameter passing through the linings into the cavity Cabinets, baths, shower bases or vanities For other penetrations contact USG Boral TecASSIST ® 1800 811 222 Acoustics

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
