Solid fuel heaters | Building Performance

Durability Versus Specified Intended LifeInstallationNational Environmental Standards For Air QualityThere can be confusion regarding the relationship between the durability requirements of the Building Code and the ‘buildings with specified intended lives’ provision in the Building Act. The durability of a building element must not be confused with the intended life of the building. A specified intended life (section 113 of the Building Act) applies to the whole building, not parts of a building. It should not be applied to solid fuel-burning appliances. Clause B2 of the Building Code requires: 1. a durability of five years for building elements for which access, replacement and detection of failure is easy 2. durability of 15 years for building elements that are moderately difficult to access or replace, or where detection of failure would only occur during normal maintenance. Most freestanding appliances must have a durability of five years, while most inbuilt appliances and flues should have a durability of 15 years. A second-hand appliance may appear to be in good condition. H...Get price
