The white paper examines how fire resistant ductwork protects life, safeguards property and promotes enterprise survival.

Newly published, from ventilation ductwork specialist Senior Hargreaves, a 2000 word white paper examines how fire resistant ductwork helps protect life, safeguards property and promotes enterprise survival in the event of fire. Hargreaves is making their extensive knowledge and experience available to building services engineers, insurance company surveyors, senior fire officers, health and safety practitioners and others with professional involvement.

The core of the paper is a discussion of the requirements of Building Regulations and the Loss Prevention Council rules. This includes an exploration of the crucial role of fire compartments and the use of 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.

Various methods for meeting the technical requirements are examined comparatively in the light of practical conditions on construction sites. “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,” explained Hargreaves director Phil Johnson.

To obtain a personal copy of the white paper, telephone Denise Mercer at Senior Hargreaves on 0161 764 5082 or e-mail with business address details.
