Highlights of the Seminar:

Firestopping, which reinstates the fire resistance of fire compartmentation barrier where are perforated by openings and joints, is an essential and crucial element for fire safety design in building. Firestopping systems shall be designed based on a couples of factors, including fire resistance rating, substrate, penetrants, annual gaps width and etc. Taking into consideration the complexity of firestopping systems, proper inspection on the installation of firestopping system ensures the correct installation and assures the fire resistance performance. The newly released APP-158 Quality Supervision of Building Works requires to check materials and construction of fire barriers and installation of proprietary fire resisting products such as FRR of fire doors and smoke seal, etc. However, the whole construction industry has few experience on execution and certification of qualification.

In the seminar, we would like to share the building code requirement, ASTM standard and international certificate program on firestopping inspection. International Building Code 2012 mandates 3rd party inspection for firestopping in Chapter 17. In reality, firestopping inspection may involve destructive test and cannot perform a 100% coverage. ASTM E2174 and E2393 provide standard and guideline on inspection procedures and method. Inspection records need a proper documentation method to archive for approval and maintenance reference check. Moreover, international Firestop Council provide a series training courses to certify the qualification of inspectors, which are recognized by IBC.
