A new set of resources looking at penetrations and compatibility were launched today at London Build by the Passive Fire Knowledge Group (PFKG), a collaborative construction forum (co-chaired by FIS Technical Director Joe Cilia).

The PFKG brings together contractors, consultants and relevant trade associations established to encourage collaboration and improve the delivery of well designed, specified and installed passive fire protection by focusing on three key areas: Process, Testing and Education.  The group aims to investigate, understand, inform and promote knowledge and research in all areas of passive fire protection and support compliance through the supply chain with the Building Safety Act.

The new resources have been developed to support compliance in the supply chain and cover:

  • Knowledge Share 1 – MEP Service Positioning And Separation Within Compartment Walls
  • Knowledge Share 2 – Wall Compatibility Checks
  • Knowledge Share 3 – Shaft Walls & Services Penetrations
  • MEP Services Penetration Seals Best Practice Design And Specification

The resources are available to download from the PFKG website here : https://pfkg.org/reports-2/
