When building and safety managers invest in new technology for their passive fire safety systems, it is vitally important that they have the confidence that the system they choose maintains its integrity in case of fire.
Chute Fire Certification UK introduced its innovative Refuse & Laundry Chute system – the Chute Fire Safe Protection System in 2019, and its customers are reassured that it meets the stringent requirements of the BS476: Part 22: 1987. The system has been successfully approved to provide a fire-resistance performance of 240 minutes, based upon the test evidence and the subsequent analysis of the manufacturing and installation from a UKAS accredited fire research facility. In addition, Chute Fire Certification UK asked the International Fire Consultants who are recognised as the go-to professionals in all aspects of fire safety and are one of the world’s leading fire safety engineering consultancies to define the field of application for their unique Chute Safe Protection System.
This latest assessment has been produced using the principles outlined in the Passive Fire Protection Forum (PFPF): ‘Guide to undertaking technical assessments of the fire performance of construction products based on fire test evidence, 2019, Industry Standard Procedure’.
Chute Fire Certification UK is delighted that the latest assessment provides full confidence to its customers in the systems that it manufactures, installs, and maintains.
