OS2 Structural Safety



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that performance, with respect to the protection of structural wood elements from termite infestation or decay, will fall significantly below expectations.

This is to limit the probability of compromised structural integrity, which could lead to:

  • structural failure, or
  • where structural wood elements support or are used in an environmental separator, the displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to the deterioration of building elements.

This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

Intent 2:

To limit the application of the standard to situations where the limited protection provided by a boron preservative will be adequate.
