Finishes and Interiors Sector (FIS) have launched a new guide to Firestopping of Service Penetrations Best Practice in Design and Installation.

Five organisations, including the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP), Building Engineering Services Association (BESA), Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA), Finishes and Interiors Sector (FIS) and the Gypsum Products Development Association (GPDA) have released the guide to strengthen stakeholder's knowledge in construction and to examine firestopping design as early as possible in the process to avoid errors in the later stage of construction.

Dame Judith Hackitt, who was the Chair of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety commented: “This document is the result of a collaboration between a number of relevant trade bodies and organisations representing the wider construction and fire safety industries”.

The Best Practice Design and Installation, Firestopping of Service Penetrations guide is available to download.
