Fire Rated Material

Building Regulations dictate the degree of fire resistance that must be met by each element of your building’s structure; the British Standard 476 ‘dictates the appropriate fire tests for these elements of structure/materials’, and therefore ‘grades the level of fire resistance’.

BS476 is composed of a comprehensive list of stringent current fire safety standards. – (BS EN 13501-1:2018 Fire classification of construction products and building elements. Classification using data from reaction to fire tests.)
