Addressing the risk when selecting fire walls and penetrations is fundamental to being able to provide compatible evidence of compliance when required.

Fire walls are often tested in isolation of the service penetration and in isolation of many of the wall assemblies used in construction and the penetration seals used to seal the penetration; understanding this risk, the use, type and classifications required to arrive at a specification where all these elements come together will be explained in this 1 hour webinar from Paul McSoley.

Paul is a technical compliance director at MACE and chairs the Process working group at the Passive Fire Knowledge Group.

This seminar is aimed at anyone involved in the specification, selection supervision and compliance of drylining.
