AWCI and BRANZ recently released Suspended Ceilings Code of Practice. This document is an important step forward in the quest to provide better outcomes for design, installation and seismic restraint of suspended ceilings.
Working with building industry leaders and organisations, the Code of Practice is an industry response to failures experienced during the recent seismic events. The Code of Practice is available to be downloaded from the AWCI website here and we encourage you to read it and translate the information into real world application.
For designers, installers, building consent officials and suppliers, the Suspended Ceiling Code of Practice is a well thought out resource to help guide us into the future.
