Testing & Accreditation

Standard ventilation ductwork systems offer little or no protection against fire spread. It is an easy way for fire and smoke to spread rapidly through a building, penetrating fire compartment walls and floors and cutting off means of escape. Therefore it is critical that a properly tested fire-resisting duct system is installed with good workmanship. Such systems can also be used to extract smoke thus helping the occupants to escape and assisting the emergency services. The design of the Firemac duct system will depend on the specified fire performance for each project and full details are available in the Firemac Technical Manual.

 

The fabric used in Firemac's systems is manufactured in the UK. All Firemac systems are rigorously tested to the requirements of BS 476: PART 24: 1987.  A full appraisal of the Firemac FM Fabric duct systems which includes a summary of the supporting test evidence, has been issued by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and is available on request. The system also had third party accreditation from International Fire Consultants (IFC) which can be viewed at http://www.ifccertification.com
