New fire resistant ductwork white paper released

Senior Hargreaves has published a white paper examining how fire resistant ductwork helps save lives and safeguards property in the event of a fire.
The paper discusses the requirements of building regulations and the Loss Prevention Council rules and includes an examination of the role of fire compartments, fire walls and resistive structures in buildings.

The paper also looks at special cases such as car park and kitchen ventilation and explains the importance of stability, integrity and insulation in fire ductwork. The paper aims to bring the company's knowledge and experience to building services engineers, insurance company surveyors, senior fire officers, health and safety practitioners and others with professional involvement.

Hargreaves director Phil Johnson said: 'The paper will be useful to engineers and other professionals engaged in specifying building services. We hope that it will promote and encourage best practice and high engineering standards.'
