Fire Resistance and Earthquake Resistance

Situated in Circum-Pacific Seismic Zone, Earthquake disasters have never been rare to be seen in Taiwan, especially the fires cuased by electricity shorcuts after earthwuakes that may subsequently result of great deaths and injuries in the places  of high population density such as public buildings of theaters, schools, hospitals and markets. Moreover, Construction and Planning Agency, Ministry of the Interior has included the seismic resistance regulations of Light Steel Frame Ceiling into  "Seismic Design Specifications and Commentary of Buildings" that has been in effect since July, 2011. Therefore,  the applications of building materials that are in compliance  with Building Acts will certainly help with safe evacuations when earthquakes occur.
