Fire resistance is a measure of the ability of a building element to prevent the spread of heat or fire gases through a barrier, or for a loadbearing element to continue to carry loads without collapse or excessive deflection when exposed to fully developed fire conditions.
Standard fire resistance test methods such as AS 1530 Part 4 are typically used to determine the period of time that the assembly or element continues to meet the criteria in the test standard.
