Fire and sound control in wood-frame multi-family buildings / [by Michael Lio]. : NH15-132/4-2002E-PDF

"This Guide shows how the spread of fire and the transmission of sound between dwelling units can be controlled in wood-frame, multi-family buildings. It focuses on how the spread of fire and transmission of sound can be controlled through the design and construction of the walls and floors that separate one dwelling unit from another in a building. It relies on the results of research performed by National Research Council of Canada/Institute forResearch in Construction (NRC/IRC) and consultants for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), among others."--p. 1-1.
