Fire tests on building materials and structures.. Part 22: Methods for determination of the fire resistance of non-loadbearing elements of construction is part of the Occupational Health & Safety Information Service's online subscription. Bringing you a comprehensive selection of legislation, regulations, guidance, standards, including BSI and best practice which is
updated daily, you can find documents on a wide range of subject areas such as Food & Drink, Environmental Health, Environmental Management, Fire & Offshore Safety.
British Standard 476-22:1987 (BS 476-22:1987) is the 22nd part of a series of documents about fire tests on building materials and structures. This section of the series focuses on methods for determination of the fire resistance of non-loadbearing elements of construction. It examines ideal test construction and condition of the test specimen and associated construction for reliable fire resistance testing. It provides specific testing procedures for evaluating a test specimem for both the mean temperature rise and maximum temperature rise of its exposed and unexposed face. Also included are detailed test construction requirements for partitions, shutter assemblies and ceiling membranes as well as guidelines for determining maximum temperature rise by using roving and fixed thermocouples.
