Fire technology of a wooden apartment building
An expert study of the fire engineering of a wooden apartment building was carried out by Karelia University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with KK-Palokonsultti Oy. The aim of the publication is to help the reader understand the technical properties of wooden structures as well as the regulations affecting fire protection, and thus avoid typical design and construction errors. The publication has been produced as part of the projects Puurakentamisen osaamisen siirto (“transfer of the know-how of timber construction”) and Teollisen rakentamisen ratkaisut (“solutions of industrial construction”).

Fireproof wooden house
Puuinfo published the Fireproof Wooden House guideline in March 2018. It was based on the new fire safety regulations that came into force at the turn of the year 2018. The guide was written by civil engineer Tero Lahtela from Insinööritoimisto Lahtela Oy. Its preparation was guided by Esko Mikkola from KK-Palokonsultti Oy and a steering group made up of representatives of the wood product industry. The guide was funded by the Finnish Forest Foundation.
The guide provides practical advice and guidance on the design of a fire-safe wooden building and illustrates the regulations related to the use of wood in the regulation on fire safety in buildings. The guide deals mainly with wooden residential and commercial buildings.
