Compartmentation is an essential part of fire safety design as it subdivides a building into areas of manageable risk, to provide adequate means of escape, and to provide fire separation for adjoining buildings.

The fire resistance of a fire compartment wall or floor is defined in time in minutes and requires fire integrity and fire insulation.

This course provides an overview of fire stopping and compartmentation, what the regulations require and how to carry out an inspection.
