Over the past few months we have conducted a fire test programme on our SpaceJoist metal web floor system. I’m now pleased to announce that SpaceJoist achieves 30 minutes fire resistance to
BS and EN standards.
Until recently I had never witnessed a fire test and so captured video to help everyone’s understanding of the test. This is a standard construction with 15mm type A wallboard, which also achieves sound requirements of the building regulations.
We’re delighted to have achieved our aim of 30 minutes fire resistance and pleased to play a leading role
in the industry.
