All performance claims for fire resistance must be substantiated by test or assessment reports by UKAS accredited laboratories. Installations must be in strict accordance with the report data of the Speedline components, other materials and assembly details. Non approved site modifications can jeopardize performance, in particular service penetrations, which should be suitably fire stopped by others.
All fire test data in this publication is to BS 476 Part 22:1987, if BS EN 1364-1:1999 test data is required please contact [email protected]
Partitions built to BS EN may have a different specification when compared to BS 476, this would impact on maximum heights permissible for example. All test data is based on unique UKAS accredited tests and UKAS accredited scope of testing. The tests are carried out in UKAS accredited furnaces measuring 3m square. Maximum heights are determined via tests under BS 5234 to a maximum limiting deflection of L/240 at 200 pascals. The maximum height is determined by its ability to resist a uniformly distributed load at 0.2kN/m2.
These structural calculations are available upon request.
The results of fire tests are the lower of insulation and/or integrity failure rounded down to the nearest 30 minutes i.e. measured as 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes.
Please contact [email protected] for further information on the individual tests or to see where the test or assessment was carried out quoting the system references.
