Fire Resistance Testing
The FireSeal Vented was tested at BM Trada on 18th September 2014 in accordance with BS EN 1364-1: 1999 and utilising the principles of BS EN 1366-3: 2009. The unit is very quick and easy to fit (10-15 minutes). Made from stainless steel with intumescent seals and high-temperature resistance locks.
It is designed to provide at least 30 minutes of fire protection in the event of significant fire and also prevent the transmission of smoke and harmful fumes. Access the detailed report under technical information.
- The FireSeal Vented – a fire rated access panel – features a louvre vent which is sealed by an intumescent material when exposed to a fire
- All units are made to measure and have been rated to provide a minimum of 30 minutes of fire protection.
Improving Fire Safety
BS 9999: 2008 recommends that a multi-storey building should typically provide between 30 and 60 minutes of fire resistance. The FireSeal Vented complies with this providing a minimum of 30 minutes of fire protection and has been installed by Leeds City Council to cover both an electric and gas meter (as pictured) where the firewall has been compromised.
