Components for the protection of openings in fire-resistant separating elements, Part 1: Service penetrations and control joints

Specifies requirements for the testing, interpretation of test results, and installation of penetration sealing systems and control joints sealing systems in fire-resistant elements of construction. The Standard is based on the testing of standard configurations and provides minimum requirements for these fire-stopping systems. It is intended to complement the fire-protection requirements of the Building Code of Australia and is to be read in conjunction with the testing regimes set out in AS 1530.4.
