Construction   -   Fire Resistance Inspection

ISO 834-8:2002 specifies the procedures to be followed for determining the fire resistance of non-loadbearing vertical separating elements when exposed to heating on one face.

ISO 6944-2:2009 establishes a method of test in which kitchen extract ducts are required to provide fire resistance. The requirements are intended to limit the spread of fire from the duct when a fire occurs within the duct and assesses the structural integrity of the duct when a fire occurs in the area surrounding the duct.

ISO 6944-1:2008 specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of vertical and horizontal ventilation ducts under standardized fire conditions. The test examines the behaviour of ducts exposed to fire from the outside (duct A) and fire inside the duct (duct B). It is intended that ISO 6944-1:2008 be used in conjunction with ISO 834-1

ISO 3008:2007, used in conjunction with ISO 834-1, specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of door and shutter assemblies designed primarily for installation within openings incorporated in vertical separating elements, such as hinged and pivoted doors, horizontally sliding and vertically sliding doors, including articulated sliding doors and sectional doors, steel single-skin folding shutters (un-insulated), other sliding, folding doors, tilting doors, rolling shutter doors and removable panels in walls.

This method can also be used to determine the fire resistance of non-loadbearing horizontal doors by analogy. However, these are not specifically addressed here and the field of direct application is not valid for horizontally oriented doors.

Eurotech Assessors/Inspectors witness the Fire resistance in the above mentioned areas and produce a inspection report  against the specified standards. The witness can take place in a lab facility or the manufacturer's premises
