Fire stopping regulations

Fire stopping is a form of passive fire protection whereby fire compartmentation and barriers which have been penetrated are reinforced or replaced. It is important that no penetrated areas are unattended. Fire stopping techniques are used to prevent the spread of fire throughout a building, allowing it to be kept to one area, helping occupants evacuate safely. 

Buildings should carry out fire stopping work and abide by the regulations. By doing so they will be keeping their staff and assets safe. There are some important fire stopping regulations which should be followed such as:

  • Regulation 38: This regulation is a legal requirement under the building regulations 2010 act aimed to improve fire safety standards within buildings in England and Wales. This helps to make sure that the ‘responsible person’ receives all relevant fire safety information. 
  • Fire safety act 2021: This legalisation outlines how any premises larger than a single dwelling requires the responsible person, such as a leaseholder, to carry out a fire risk assessment.

Fire stopping is a specialised area and therefore requires expert knowledge and experience to carry it out safely and effectively. This way any products used will have been tested to ensure its suitability for each application.
