On Tuesday 21 June, FIS and The Association for Specialist Fire Protection joined forces at FIREX International 2016 in launching a new initiative.

The Fire Performance Partition Label aims to identify fire performance partitions to installers, M&E contractors, building owners and facilities managers, highlighting the risks of cutting holes in them to accommodate services.

Such holes negate the performance of the partition and allow smoke and fire to pass from one compartment to another, which could lead to loss of life and extensive damage to the building, as well as having huge impacts on the business.

The Fire Performance Partition Label fact sheet can be read here.
