COMPARTMENTATION - AN INTERNATIONAL APPROAcH


Fire Prevention is a critical consideration for all those who are responsible for creating the design,
specification and construction of new buildings. It also has to be considered in the ongoing
maintenance of occupied premises.
The causes of re are varied and unpredictable. Often the cause is outside the area of inuence of
design engineers and planners. But the ability to control the spread of re once it has started can still
be inuenced.
There is one globally applied principle for fire safety that is the basis for controlling the spread of fire,
smoke and toxic gases within buildings and that is compartmentation (Fire compartments).
To confine a fire to the zone of origin for a specified time, buildings are split down into fire compartments.
Walls and floors forming a compartment are therefore designed to resist the passage of fire and smoke
for a specified period of time:
Provide protected escape routes, allowing more time for safe evacuation of the buildings occupants.
Restrict / delay the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases
Minimise / reduce risk of loss
Reduce risk for fire brigades
Effective re ghting within a building is generally achieved through a combination of active and passive FireStop systems.
Active FireStop Systems
Active re prevention systems are designed to react to the outbreak of a re which is then suppressed with the help of sprinkler
systems, halogen installations, re extinguishers or other proactive mechanical systems. The effects of the re may also be lessened
by the removal of smoke. By including alarms and emergency lighting, active systems also serve to provide escape routes for people
inside the building.
Passive Fire Prevention Systems
Passive re prevention systems are integrated in the structure of a building ensuring that once the re starts it is limited to a re
compartment composed of re rated walls, oors and ceilings. To maintain the FireStopping integrity of walls, oors and ceilings, all
gaps, openings and channels must be sealed to prevent the escape of re smoke and toxic gases.

Building Regulations and Codes


All Building Regulations and codes, throughout the world, provide standards that constructors should adhere to. Within these codes
there will normally be standards for Fire protection which are intended purely to help save lives. Protection of buildings and equipment
is not the purpose of these codes and often there will be further industry standards set by others who have an interest in this aspect,
such as Insurers.
National (UK and Ireland) Regulations
The following national regulations are published as statutory instruments by Parliament with respect to life safety purposes:

Building Regulations (England and Wales) 1991

Building Standards (Scotland) 2001

These regulations are expressed as functional requirements.


Approved Document B (2000 Edition) Fire Safety, give nonmandatory guidance.

These are expressed as functional requirements.


All of the provisions of Technical Standards Part D and Part E
are mandatory
These provisions are wavered only by means of a relaxation.

Building Regulations (Republic of Ireland) 1997

Building Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1994

The building regulations in the republic of Ireland are similar in


Basic functional requirements with approval solutions are given
arrangement and content to the England and Wales Building
in Technical Booklet E which is similar to England and Wales
Regulations and are covered by Technical Guidance Document B. Approved Document B.

BS 7671: 2008: United Kingdom


The 17th edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671:2008) lays down standards of Firestopping for all commercial, domestic and
industrial wiring installations.
The Goal of Fire Regulations:
Building regulations vary from country to country, but all FS regulations are based on one objective; The Life safety of occupants and
all those nearby. As such, National building regulations define:
Rules of building construction
Inspection / Enforcement procedures
Level of fire protection required (Type of building, FS systems, fire resistance..)
Fire testing methods and standards

Passive Fire Protection


Approved Document B states the following points with regard to reinstatement of fire rated elements:
If a fire separating element is to be effective then every joint, or imperfection of fit, or opening to allow services to pass through the
element should be adequately protected by sealing or FireStopping so that the fire resistance of the element is not impaired 11.2
This is quite categorical in its assertion that every opening in a fire rated element needs to be reinstated to restore it full fire
resistance.
In addition to any other provisions in this document for FireStopping:
a. Joints between re separating elements should be FireStopped and
b. All openings for pipes, ducts, conduits or cables to pass through any part of a re separating element should be:
i. Kept as few in number as possible and
ii. Kept as small as practical and
iii. FireStopped (which in the case of a pipe or duct should allow for thermal movement) 11.12

Technical Standards (Scotland) state:

FireStop Product Range

Q. Why does FireStopping need to be carried out?

A compartment wall and compartment oor must have no openings and must provide a barrier to re between the parts
of a building to be divided including any roof space.
Except for:
Where there is a service opening a. Which is of suitable construction or where the services are suitably protected so that in the event of a re the level of re safety
performance required of the compartment wall or compartment oor is maintained, and;
b. Which is suitably FireStopped D3.14
BS7671 (IEE Wiring Regulations) further adds:
Where a wiring system passes through elements of building construction such as oors, walls, roofs, ceilings, partitions or cavity
barriers the openings remaining after passage of the wiring systems shall be sealed according to the degree of re resistance
required of the element concerned. 527-02-01
Where a wiring system such as conduit, cable ducting, cable trunking, busbar or busbar trunking penetrates an element of building
construction having specied re resistance it shall be internally sealed so as to maintain the degree of re resistance of the
respective element as well as being externally sealed to maintain the required re resistance. 527-02-01
Q. Why do you have to have all your FireStop products tested?
Approved Document B states the following with regard to testing:
The product should be in accordance with a specification or design which has been shown by test to be capable of meeting that
performance or have been assessed from test evidence against appropriate standards Appendix A 1A
Provide a propriety sealing system which has been shown by test to maintain re resistance of the wall, oor or cavity
barrier. B3 11.6
Technical Standards (Scotland) require:
The requirements of D3.14, D4.7, D5.8 and D6.7 for FireStopping of service openings and D6.9 for FireStopping will be met in the
case
When dierent movement is anticipated, whether in normal use or during re exposure by the use of a proprietary sealant or sealing
system which has shown by test its ability to maintain the required level of safety performance under the conditions appropriate to
its end use B2.2.1
Q. What is 3rd party accreditation and why is it important?
Approved Document B states the following with regard to Product Conformity:
Third party accredited product conformity certification schemes not only provide a means of identifying . products. which have
demonstrated that they have the requisite performance in fire, but additionally provide confidence that the ... products .. actually
supplied are provided to the same specification or design as tested/assessed

FireStop Product Range

Standards and Approvals


FIRE RESISTANCE TEST STANDARDS
Various standards have been adopted around the world to provide conformance with the needs of local building regulations and codes.
There are no hard and fast rules with some regions accepting several different standards that might be acceptable, For instance, in
many countries, British Standards are accepted, but in certain situations there might be a preference for UL or maybe FM standards
for certain projects or specific products. As laid down within the IBC there is global acceptance that ALL standards and approvals that
provide conformance with local codes must be deemed as acceptable so no specific standard ought to be imposed.
Historically, fire resistance tests within the UK have utilised test evidence created by ad-hoc
testing to the BS 476: Part 20 - 24 regime. With the move towards harmonised European
standards, testing of late has been to the EN1366 test standards and then classification to
EN13501.
Ultimately, the aim is for Firestop Products and Systems to be CE Marked, but at the time
of writing, there is no Harmonised Standard, so there is no mandatory requirement to CE
mark. It is expected that it will be at least 2016-2017 before this situation changes.

BS 476

BS EN13501

BS EN1366

Products within this handbook have been tested and/or assessed to either BS476 or EN1366. In some cases, both.

Underwiters Laboratories are an American organisation whose listings and standards have been aggressively
promoted in some countries around the world. The cost of obtaining such listings is prohibitive, the process is lengthy
and invariably those costs have to be passed on. It is extremely rare that UL listed products are requested within the UK
but in some countries they do have a stronger presence.
There is a perception where UL listed products are requested or specified, that products tested to other international standards, such
as BS or EN are not acceptable and cannot be offered as an alternative. This can and should be challanged, as even the IBC states that
Comparable standards include, but are not limited to, ............, British Standards, European Norms (EN) Standards and International
Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) Standards............... (Chapter 47 Referenced Standards).
NB: fischer fixings UK have no UL affiliated systems or products.

REACTION TO FIRE TEST STANDARDS


Reaction to fire is the measurement of how a material or system will contribute to the fire development and
spread, particularly in the very early stages of a fire when evacuation is crucial. Reaction to fire can influence
a products ability to resist fire, but the classification is NOT a Fire Rating and does not indicate suitability for
Firestopping. The classifications B1, B2, B3, etc effectively indicate flamability and are derived from totally
different tests to Resistance to fire testing.

DIN 4102: Part1

ADDITIONAL TESTING
Invariably where Firestop products are being used to reinstate the fire resistance of a compartment wall or floor, there are other
considerations that may have to be met; for instance, preventing or reducing the leakage of energy from a building by meeting air
leakage standards. Preserving the acoustic performance of walls and floors is also often a requirement.
As such, many of our FireStop products have undergone additional testing to the following and other standards to provide our customers
with added value solutions where more than resistance to fire is desired.

BS EN ISO 140-3:1995

BS EN ISO 140-3: 1995

Product Conformity and Certification

fischer FireStop products throughout this Handbook have appropriate accreditation under the following Certification schemes:
IFC Certication Scheme. International Fire Consultants provide high level third party certification against IFCCs
own rigorous standards International, European, British or Industry standards. Evaluation involves initial type testing,
establishment of a comprehensive field of application, auditing of quality management and factory production control
procedures, auditing and labelling.
Administered by Warrington Certification, CERTIFIRE is an independent third party certification
scheme that assures performance, quality, reliability and traceability of fire protection products.
Recognised by regulatory authorities worldwide, it is an internationally respected mark of fire safety
and one of the most authoritative in the industry.

FireStop Product Range

3rd Party Accreditation of FireStop products provides peace of mind that products supplied are to the same specification as that
tested and many building codes include this as a requirement. Approved Document B states that There are many UK product
certification schemes. Such schemes certify compliance with the requirements of a recognised document, which is appropriate to
the purpose for which the material is to be used. Materials, which are not so certified, may still conform to a relevant standard........
Many certification bodies which approve such schemes are accredited by UKAS.

Installer Conformity and Certification


Many Building Codes and Regulations recognise that poor installation of Firestop products can lead to failure and see 3rd Party
Accreditation of Installers as vital. Approved Document B states that Since the fire performance of a product, component or structure
is dependent upon satisfactory site installation and maintenance, independent schemes of certification and registration of installers
and maintenance firms of such will provide confidence in the appropriate standard of workmanship being provided.
It then goes on to say Building control may accept the certification of products, components, materials or structures under such
schemes as evidence of compliance with the relevant standard. Similarly Building Control Bodies may accept the certification of the
installation or maintenance of products, components, materials or structures under such schemes as evidence of compliance with
the relevant standard. A Building Control Body will wish to establish in advance of the work that any such scheme is adequate for the
purposes of the Building Regulations.
This statement suggests that savings are available to reduce the costs of Building Control/Approved Inspectors where 3rd party
certificated products and installers are being used on site.
Installer Schemes that provide such Certification include:
FIRAS is voluntary, third party certification for installation contractors of both passive and active fire
protection systems, operated by Warrington Certification, and accredited by UKAS to EN45011. A
comprehensive listing of companies which have FIRAS certification including the scope of their
certification can be viewed in the FIRAS Register.
FIRAS certificated contractors are required to undergo a 3 stage assessment process. And, only when the applicant contractor has
satisfied all of these criteria is certification granted:
Once certificated, all FIRAS Registered Installer Companies are subject to ongoing random inspection of their installation work on
ongoing contracts along with an annual audit of their office systems by FIRAS Inspectors to ensure that compliance with FIRAS Scheme
Requirements is maintained.

Construction Products Regulation and British Standard BS 8539: 2012


Construction Products Regulation (CPR)
The construction industry is facing a very significant change in the way in which construction products are
sold in Europe. The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) has been adopted by the European Commission
and UK Government and from 1 July 2013, replaces the Construction Products Directive (CPD). As a result of
the change, CE marking will become mandatory in the UK on products which are covered by a harmonised
European Standard (hEN) or European Technical Assessment (ETA previously known as European Technical
Approval). Until recently under the old CPD, CE marking was voluntary in the UK. Manufacturers and importers
have until July 2013 to ensure that their construction products, where applicable, comply with the new
Regulation and are CE marked.

BS 8539:2012 - Code of Practice for the selection and installation of post-installed anchors in concrete
and masonry
Are you a Specifier, Distributor, Contractor or Tester of construction fixings?
Do you know what your Role and Responsibilities are, to comply with this new Code of Practice?
Do not take the risk, make sure you comply!
Another important development which promoted the best practice and safety within the construction
industry, is the publication of the British Standard BS 8539: 2012 Code of practice for the selection and
installation of post-installed anchors in concrete and masonry. This code is intended to set out the roles and
responsibilities of all stakeholders involved in the use of construction fixings in the UK from manufacturers and
specifiers through distributors to contractors, installers and testers. It highlights the importance of anchors,
especially for safety critical applications where failure of the fixing could result in risk to life or serious economic
consequences. According to this new BS Code of Practice, fixings must be selected following the correct
design methods and all selection criteria to be considered. If anchor specification need to be changed and
alternative anchor supplied, the full Change Management procedures must be followed to eliminate any risks
of inferior product being used. Contractors must assure that fixings are installed by competent personnel,
correct installation procedures are followed with correct tools and upon completion installation is certified. If
anchors are to be tested on building sites, CFA Guidance note Procedures for site testing construction fixings
2012 shall be followed.

fischer fully support this positive development as the new BS Code of Practice is expected to
improve the way fixings are selected and installed, making them safer while protecting everyones
liabilities.

DESCRIPTION

AIR and SMOKE SEAL


fischer FireStop & acoustic mastic
has been tested to BS EN1026 and
will provide an effective cold smoke
seal, as well as resisting air leakage
where the requirements of Approved
Document L are to be met.

storage
fischer FiAM is not affected by
outdoors environment. However, for
long term storage it is recommended
that it be stored in dry, frost free
conditions below +30oc application.

fischer FireStop & acoustic mastic is a


one part acrylic emulsion that is designed
to resist the passage of fire, smoke and
sound, as well as providing an effective
air seal. When exposed to fire, it reacts to
form a highly insulative char that slows
down heat transfer, as well as providing a
barrier to fire.
Tested to BS476 pts 20/22 and EN1366
pt 4, FiAM has been shown to provide up
to 5 hours fire resistance. It is suitable for
sealing linear joints in both masonry and
drywall constructions, as well as around
fire rated door assemblies and a wide
range of service penetrations.
FiAM is also utilised within the fischer
coated panel system (FCPS), which is
designed to seal larger openings through
fire rated walls and floors.

description

Backing Materials

fischer FiGM-PFS+ is a powerful graphite


based product which when exposed
to fire expands up to 20 times its own
volume; crushing through services as they
melt to form a resiliant fire seal.

For metal pipe applications mineral


wool (min 80kg/m) should be used.
For most other tested applications, no
backing material is required.
Where increased insulation and/or
acoustic performance is required; or
to control sealant depth, use fischer
FireStop foam, fischer B2 foam or
mineral wool.

Tested to BS EN1366-3, it is suitable for


use within both drywall constructions and
solid concrete or masonry walls, providing
up to 2 hours fire and insulation ratings for
most applications. These include plastic
pipes (PVC, HDPE, ABS) up to 125mm
diameter, insulated pipes, metal pipes,
single and bunched cables plus mixed
pipe and cable penetrations.

storage

FiGM-PFS+ has excellent non slump


properties coupled with ease of
application due to its water based nature.

FiGM-PFS+ should ideally be stored


between +5C and +25C, indoors,
above ground level in dry well
ventilated conditions, in unopened
and original packaging.
Dispose of waste in accordance with
local authority regulations.

Once cured, as well as being smoke, gas


and water tight, it can also be painted.

INSTALLATION GUIDANCE

Ensure the opening and any substrate which the product will come into contact with is clean, free from dust and loose particles.
Ensure that all services are adequately supported so as to not exert movement that might disrupt the seal during a fire.
Backing material, where required, should be installed centrally within the penetration.
Sealant should be applied around the service(s) on both exposed faces.
The sealant can be tooled and smoothed with a pallet knife using water
All dimensions and tolerances should be in line with the recommended guidelines as dictated by the relevant test data and/or
assessments.

fischer FireStop foam is a one component


polyurethane foam which is self-curing
via the absorption of moisture from the
atmosphere. The foam has excellent
adhesive properties bonding to wood,
brick, concrete, drywall boards and timber
surfaces.
Foam sets in a semi-ridged structure,
fixes firmly, yet yields to movement and
vibration. Tested to BSEN1366-4 &
classified to EN13501, the foam is perfect
for sealing linear gaps in walls.
Used as part of a system solution with
fischer FiAM, FFRS and FiGM-PFS+, it
can also be utilised to seal around pipes,
cables, trunking, conduit and door frames.

INSTALLATION

Preparation

Joint Filling

Around Services with FiAM or FiGM-PFS+

Installation information
Shake canister vigorously at least 20 times before use and again periodically during application.
Remove protective cap and screw gun carefully onto canister. (For hand foam screw nozzle firmly into connector on top of valve).
Invert can and direct gun into gap, then pull gently on the trigger.
Fill approx. half of req. depth of cavity to allow for expansion. If gaps are more than 30 mm, apply foam in beads and pre-moisten
between layers.
On horizontal surfaces work away from exuding bead and work upwards on all vertical surfaces.
FireStop foam is adversely affected by UV light and should be covered with fischer FFRS, FiAM or Fire Rated Paint.
Curing:
The foam will be tack free in approx. 10 mins, trimmable within 45-60 mins and loadable within 24hrs depending on thickness,
temperature and humidity.
Cleaning:
Remove spilt foam immediately with fischer PU foam cleaner or acetone. Cured foam can only be removed mechanically.

description
Constructed from resilient Polypropylene,
the FCID outer casing has been designed
to resist the loads exerted by wet concrete.
As part of this sealed unit, the integrated
lid resists normal site foot traffic and
cannot be dislodged - ensuring that water
ingress is resisted, until pipework needs to
be installed.
The base has a ring of graphite based
intumescent which expands powerfully
under fire conditions melting pipework &
closing any openings.
Designed for use mainly within 250mm
thick slabs, FCiD can be extended or
shortened, utilising accessories such as
Extension Sleeves & Cap Plugs. It also
integrates with MRF Recess Former for
applications requiring formed recesses.

INSTALLATION GUIDANCE

Position Cast-In Device on formwork and nail into position through holes provided. Do not skew nails.
Pour concrete to required depth. After formwork has been stripped and pipe is ready for positioning, knock out cap from top of
collar and insert pipe through collar.
Note: If pipe is pushed from top, rubber seal will be forced downwards. Lift pipe slightly to ensure that rubber seal projects upwards.

Simply cut sleeve to size using a fine toothed saw and slide over FCID until stopped by tops of ribs and seal with FCID-E/C.
Pour concrete to required depth. Fill cap for flush finish and remove extension cap when pipe is ready to be installed.
NB : It is recommended that the recess in the Cap plugs is filled with concrete during the pour to form a strong, flush installation.

140kg /m3 stone fibre core panels that
are coated with FPC ablative sealant on
both sides.
fischer FiAM is used to bond and seal the
system and at normal temperatures, the
FCPS Panel installed with FiAM sealant
remains flexible to permit thermal and
mechanical movement of the services.

INSTALLATION GUIDANCE

Ensure Intumescent wraps (FiPW) are fitted to any plastic pipes.


Brush out and clean opening, ensuring debris and dust is removed.
Cut Panels to size, making allowance for services and keeping the number of joints to a minimum.
Friction fitted between the services and the edges of the structure, ensuring FIAM has been generously applied to all edges. Apply
FiAM) to seal any small inaccuracies or gaps and to seal the perimeter.
Coat with Panel coating (FPC).
Suggested Installation tools:
Steel rule x 3/5 m, Straight edge x 1 m, Marker pen, Sharp serrated knife, Padsaw/hacksaw blade in holder, Palette knife/wide
spatula, Medium paint brush.
NOTE: In floor applications, fischer coated panel should be protected from physical damage by foot traffic (e.g. with a ply board or
chequer plate platform) and should be installed as a double thickness seal. For large floor openings we would advise using fischer
FireStop compound. (FFSC)

description
FFSC is a formulated gypsum based
mortar which can be mixed with water and
trowelled / poured around services where
penetration occurs in fire rated walls or floors.
In floors, fischer FCPS is friction fitted
between services and edges of the floor
slab. FFSC is then trowelled over shutter to
a depth of 25mm and once cured, a pour
to the required full depth can be made. (See
install guidance).
In walls, Firestop Compound is mixed into a
stiff consistency for trowelling into smaller
openings.
Plastic pipework must be protected with
either fischer FFC Pipe collars or FiPW pipe
wraps

Remove all loose material from opening of fire barrier.


Fit shuttering or temporary plywood or similar material like FCPS.
Add compound to clean water and mix by hand or with power mixer.
Keep dry and protect bag from impact damage.
Clean all tools and equipment immediately after use with water.

Floor openings
Pouring: Mix compound with water - 2.5:1 parts by volume. Do not mix weaker than 2:1.
Set shuttering into opening ensuring tight fit so when required depth of compound is installed, it is flush with floor type - unless
otherwise specified.
Mix and pour compound until required thickness is achieved.
Reinforcing with 12mm dia. bars placed at max. of 200mm centres across the short span only. Bars may be recessed into
surrounding structure by a min. of 50mm on both sides or supported on an angle, securely fixed to the structure. All positioned
approx. 30mm above bottom surface of compound to ensure adequate fire protection. Existing compound installations can be
drilled or sawn to allow provision of additional or replacement services and re-sealed.
Recommended 50mm or half the diameter min. clearance between services and surrounding structure.
Wall openings
Trowelling: 1 bag of compound to 7 ltrs water (3:1). Guide only, varies with conditions.
Trowel compound, start at base of opening ensuring correct thickness of material installed. Work towards top of opening until
barrier is complete. If shuttering panel is set centre repeat process on other side.

STANDARDS & Approvals

Suitable for:
Drywall
Masonry/Concrete Walls
Concrete floor slabs

Advantages
Tested to BS 476:Part 20:1987
Up to 2 hours fire rating
Maintains integrity of insulation &
vapour seal
Labour saving
Suitable for walls & floors

Applications
fischer Insulated fire sleeves are intended
for use with both metal & plastic pipework
including:
Copper & mild steel,
Polybutylene and PVC pipes
FiFS helps to maintain insulation values
and provides a vapour seal. For insulated
pipes it is normally necessary to remove
insulation at point of penetration to enable
standard pipe collars to close plastic
pipes. fischer insulated fire sleeves provide
both firestopping and thermal insulation.
Where there is the need for enhanced
acoustic standards to be met, the use
of fischer insulated fire sleeves can
considerably reduce the noise emission
from noisy pipework.

description
FiFS consist of a unique combination of
mineral wool and intumescent graphite
that provide all the benefits of mineral
wools thermal, noise and fire benefits
with an added intumescent effect.
Tested to BS 476:Part 20, they provide
up to 2 hours Fire protection & can be
used to FireStop pipe work operating at
temperatures between 0oC and 180oC. At
low temperatures, care should be taken to
maintain the vapour barrier.
fischer insulated fire sleeves are
compatible with most materials in normal
building and industrial applications,
although precautions should be taken
when insulating austenitic stainless steel,
regardless of insulation type.

INSTALLATION GUIDANCE

DYNAMIC MOVEMENT
Facade systems are often subjected to
both negative
& positive wind
loadings, as well
as other factors
that can cause
deflection. This
can occur during
normal service
life, or under fire
conditions.
Fischer FFB-ES Elastoseal has been
designed to accomodate such movement
& has undergone
a Dynamic
Movement Testing
regime more
rigerous than laid
down within test
standards.

ElastoSeal has undergone dynamic movement


tests in excess of 1000 cycles.
To perform the dynamic tests, 2.5mm WFT of
ElastoSeal was cured on to elastomeric substrates,
which were then subjected to both extension &
compression cycles.
EXTENSION >

< COMPRESSION
ElastoSeal under 7 tonne load pressure, allowing
compression to less than half of original thickness.
Despite this arduous regime, which emphatically
exceeds the 500 cycle requirements of Class II & III
Approval, ASTM E 1966 & UL 2079, after 1000 cycles
there was no visible or physical deterioration of the
ElastoSeal at all.

of min 25mm is maintained to allow
ventilation. In the event of direct exposure
to fire, when subjected to heat, the
intumescent strip rapidly expands to fill
the air gap within the cavity.

INSTALLATION GUIDANCE

FFB-VS must be installed with un-faced mineral fibre in contact with sides of structural element.
Insert seal in to cavity with a 25mm gap to the external edge of cavity in respect of the ventilated version.
