All interested parties, designer, specifier, main contractor and specialist installers should provide access to allow the fire stopping seals to be regularly inspected and maintained, as well as records kept of such maintenance at minimum periods of 12 months, as required by the Regulatory Reform Order, and repaired if necessary. Reference should be made to ASFP TGD 17 – Code of Practice for the Installation and Inspection of Fire Stopping.

It is vital that those entrusted to design or install a fire stopping product have the necessary levels of competence to undertake the task professionally and thoroughly. The level of competency required will be commensurate with the expected complexity of the building. All designers must eliminate, reduce or control foreseeable risks that may arise during installation, construction or maintenance when preparing or modifying designs. Clients should ensure that the principal designer and principal contractor carry out their duties under CDM regulations. The ASFP foundation course in passive fire protection provides essential knowledge as part of demonstrating competency and understanding in this key fire protection specialism.

Additional Notes
All doors must be lined with a 6mm hardwood liner around the perimeter of the aperture.

Unwind the glazing system from the coil. Remove the release liner from the product. Fit the product to the bead.

Mitre cut the bead [with glazing system installed] to fit the aperture. Install one complete side of the beading system using M5 x 50mm stainless steel screws at 150mm centres.  Cut glass to fit aperture with a tolerance of +/-2mm and install. Repeat steps for opposite side of the door
