USG Seismic Design Guidelines - Suspended Ceilings
For projects outside the scope of the Generic Design Guide, this document provides a comprehensive “check list” of the type of information required by a qualified structural engineer with experience in ceiling design to provide project specific seismic ceiling design. This could be for projects such as unusual shaped ceilings, high rise in Zone 3, building Importance Level 4 etc
USG Fire Rate Exposed Grid Ceiling Systems The purpose of this Code of Practice is to assist the construction industry, building consent authorities, architects, engineers, builders, installers and specifiers to comply with the New Zealand Building Code.
