However, depending on the fire load, it may not be sufficient to reduce the temperature of the steel below the critical temperature that would lead to collapse of the rafters. If the fire load is sufficient and collapse occurs, the value of the maximum overturning moment will be unaffected, although the time at which it is attained will depend on the amount of ventilation. It is important to understand that roof venting is not required if the recommendations contained in this publication are followed.
