October 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Wood WORKS! BC – Online Tools for Wood Construction – CodeCHEK and FRR & STC

Developed by the Canadian Wood Council, the FRR & STC tool (fire-resistance rating & sound transmission class) determines the applicable construction requirements related to fire safety in Sections 3.1 and 3.2 of the National Building Code (NBC). The FRR & STC tool helps designers, builders, as well as building and fire officials with the determination of generic fire-resistance rating designs of light wood-frame wall, floor, and roof assemblies using the Component Additive Method described in Appendix D of the NBC, which is referenced as an acceptable solution in Section 3.1 of the NBC and can be used for buildings permitted to be of combustible construction. In addition, the tool provides the sound transmission class (STC) value that is associated with each wall or floor assembly for which STC information is available.
