About FSS International
Fire Compartimentation and FSS International
Every year around 18,000 fires occur in the Netherlands, causing substantial damage. Each year, more than 1000 injured and 70 deaths fall. The financial loss is between 750 million and 1 billion euro. Fire protection therefore earned the full attention.
An integral part of fire protection concerns fire compartmentalization. A fire compartment applies as the maximum expansion range of a fire. Depending on the usage function of a building, the maximum size of fire compartments is determined. Requirements in this area are laid down in the Dutch Building Decree.
A building can consist of multiple fire compartments. These are realized by constructing fireproof walls, floors and ceilings. Windows, doors, ventilation grates and passages of various technical installations form weak spots in the fire-resistant separation structures. To solve this problem, measures must be taken to maintain the fire resistance of the entire structure. For example, fire protection windows, doors and ventilation grates must be provided and technical installations must be carried out with fire resistant products. These must prevent fire passages through transit. The products to be used must be tested for their fire resistance. These must be demonstrably compliant with the classification requirement for the particular application. Within Europe, these products must be tested and / or assessed by a European accredited institute such as Efectis, Peutz, Warrington or Applus.
FireStopSystems International has a wide range of fireproof products for fire compartmentalization. Initially, this is a unique program of fire-fighting ventilation grids. Each specially designed for applications in interior and exterior doors and walls, floors, frames and placement directly on glass.
