As a responsible leader in the construction industry ITWCP continues to raise industry standards for fire certification.
Over the past several months we have conducted a fire test programme on our SpaceJoist metal web floor system. As a result of our most recent testing, we are now pleased to announce that SpaceJoist achieves 90 minutes fire resistance to BS and EN standards. Considering ready-availability of materials this is a standard construction using two layers of 15mm Type F plasterboard to meet the Robust Details requirements for separating floors. Please get in touch with us for your fire guidance pack.
To help everyone’s understanding of what’s involved, we arranged a time lapse video to capture the floor build and the fire test itself.
We’re thrilled to have achieved our aim of 90 minutes fire resistance and pleased to play a leading role in the industry.
