  • Answer

    In order to carry out a fire protection certificate in STEEL EC3, you must select a load case or a load combination in the "Fire protection" tab for which the fire protection certificate is to be carried out.

    As soon as you have selected a load for the fire protection certificate, an additional mask "Fire protection bars" or "Fire protection - Rod sets" appears in the module navigator on the left (if rod sets are to be dimensioned in the module case). In this screen 1.10 or 1.11 further settings for the fire protection proof of the component can be set.

    Further detail settings (eg. example required duration of fire protection, etc.) can also be found by pressing the [Details ...] button and selecting the "Fire protection" tab.

    Further information can be found in the manual for STAHL EC3.
