Standards & GuidanceAD B3 (Sect(S10)) - Protection off openings and firef stopping10.2102‘IfIf a fire-separating element is to be effective,effectiveevery joint or imperfection of fit, or opening to allowservices to pass through the element, should beadequately protected by sealing or fire-stoppingfire stopping sothat the fire resistance of the element is not impaired’10.17 adds the requirement that:Joints between fire separatingpg elements should be fire stopped;pp ; andAll openings for pipes, ducts, conduits or cables to pass through any partof a fire separating element should be: Kept as few in number as possible; and Kept as small as practical; and Fire stopped (which in the case of a pipe or ductduct, should allow forthermal movement).

Pipep Wrapsp & CollarsHTM05/02 Clause 6.16 - To maintain the integrity of compartmentation,openingspg should be limited to:b. openings for pipes of not more than 160mmdiameter which, if exposed to a temperature of800 C, will not soften or fracture to the extentthat flames or hot gases will pass through thewall of the pipe;c. pipes of materials other than those in (b) aboveof not more than 40mm diameter;;d. pipes of any diameter which are provided witha proprietary seal which has been shown bytest (for the diameter of pipe proposed) tomaintain the fire resistance of the compartmentstructure;
