Each method contains dimensional drawings and a detailed description of each method. In each case the classifications are shown, together with the fire test reference.

Alternative partition systems to those shown within this installation manual can be used if they have been shown by test to have at least the same fire resistance when tested to BS EN 1364-1 as is required of the damper. If the partition system has been successfully tested without stone mineral wool, it does not have to be used in practice when only considering the fire performance of the complete system. The mineral wool may still be needed for other reasons e.g. acoustic performance.

The mortar used in the tests shown within this installation manual had a standard sand/cement mix in the ratio of 4:1. Alternative fire resisting refractory mortars may be used providing that they have been tested in accordance with BS EN 1366-3 for the required period when installed around the damper.

The ablative batt penetration sealing systems used in the tests shown within this installation manual was 60mm thick Rockwool Ablative Coated Batt. Alternative batt penetration sealing systems may be used providing that they have been tested in accordance with BS EN 1366-3 for the required period when installed around the damper.
