The UK Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) and Finishes and Interior Sector industry association (FIS) have launched a new “Fire Performance Partition Labelling Scheme”. The label will identify fire resistant partitions for information of cable installers, contractors, building owners and facilities managers.
The objective is to ensure both that fire safety is correctly engineered during initial construction and also that holes are not pierced in such partitions during later renovation or modification work, which could reduce the partition’s fire barrier function or allow smoke to get through in case of fire. Holes pierced in fire partitions must be made good with ‘fire stop’ materials, including when hidden for example above false ceilings. The self-adhesive labels are printed on 60m rolls.
