Understanding compartmentation and fire-stopping is vital for ensuring the safety of building occupants.
Compartmentation subdivides the 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.
Led by our expert tutor, this comprehensive one-day training course will provide you with an overview of fire stopping and compartmentation, what the regulations require and how to carry out an inspection.
After successfully completing this course, you’ll be able to:
- Understand basic Fire Dynamics

- Appreciate different types of fire stopping systems available and how they work
