This book brings together the key published definitions of fire and fire safety terminology, creating a definitive catalogue of fire terms. British Standards and associated documents carry their own terms and definitions but in many cases it has been found that these individual lists will often define the same term with slight or substantial differences. This dictionary of terms amalgamates these varying definitions into single, composite definitions and supplements further definitions widely used in the industry.The terms explained cover the whole spectrum of fire safety in all its applications. This includes testing for both fire resistance and reaction to fire; passive and active fire protection systems and fire safety engineering principles to the design of buildings. The book supports all British Standards and the many other Published Documents which support the British Standards and European standards codes of practice and related documents.
