Fire resistance tests for service installations. Penetration seals

BS EN 1366-3:2009 Fire resistance tests for service installations. Penetration seals

BS EN 1366-3 specifies a method of test and criteria for the evaluation (including field of application rules) of the ability of a penetration seal to maintain the fire resistance of a separating element at the position at which it has been penetrated by a service.

Penetration seals used to seal gaps around chimneys, air ventilation systems, fire rated ventilation ducts, fire rated service ducts, shafts and smoke extraction ducts are excluded from this standard except for mixed penetration seals.

The purpose of BS EN 1366-3 is to assess:
a) The effect of such penetrations on the integrity and insulation performance of the separating element concerned
b) The integrity and insulation performance of the penetration seal
c) The insulation performance of the penetrating service or services, and where necessary, the integrity failure of a service.

No information can be implied by the test concerning the influence of the inclusion of such
penetrations and sealing systems on the loadbearing capacity of the separating element.

It is not the intention of this test to provide quantitative information on the rate of leakage of smoke and/or hot gases or on the transmission or generation of fumes. Such phenomena are only to be noted in describing the general behaviour of test specimens during the test.

This test is not intended to supply any information on the ability of the penetration seal to withstand stress caused by movements or displacements of the penetrating services. The risk of spread of fire downwards caused by burning material, which drips through a pipe downwards to floors below, cannot be assessed with this test.
