This paper (also published as Steel Construction, vol. 42, no. 1) is designed to provide builders, architects and engineers with elementary details on fire protection products based on the two general paths that designers may choose to follow:
1. 'Deemed-to-satisfy' solution; or
2. A fire engineered solution.

The fire engineered solution may offer a further 2 alternative options:
2a. Fire engineered solution for pricing and final design for construction; or
2b. Use of 'Deemed-to-satisfy' for pricing and then a fire engineered solution for final design for construction.

The Guide examines the steps required for these options and guidance on which products may be most appropriate for certain scenarios.

Current ASI members can obtain this guide free by logging in and downloading it via the Journals section of the eLibrary.
