BCA Para:- BCA Technical Guidance Note 24 - Means of Escape from Dwelling Houses with Four or More Storey

This advice note is for single family dwelling houses only— it should be noted that both Approved Document B1and BS9991 take account of both the safety of building occupants and fire fighters,

Reference is also made in this advice note to a recent determination by DCLG that has a direct bearing on this guidance note.

The key requirements of the Approved Document and BS 9991 are very similar but have been presented to enable a direct comparison to be made between the various requirements.

Para:BS 476-11:1982 Fire tests on building materials and structures. Method for assessing the heat emission from building materials (Incorporating corrigendum No. 1)

Describes a method for assessing the heat emission from building materials when inserted into a furnace at a temperature of 750°C.

Para:BS 476-20:1987 Fire tests on building materials and structures. Method for determination of the fire resistance of elements of construction (general principles) (incorporating amendment No. 1 and corrigendum No. 1)

Gives general details of test conditions, specimens, apparatus and criteria for fire resistance testing. Appendices provide general guidance information, method for residual loadbearing capacity and operating instructions.

Para:BS 476-21:1987 Fire tests on building materials and structures Methods for determination of the fire resistance of loadbearing elements of construction

Determines heating conditions, methods of test and fire resistance of products used for walls, partitions, flat roofs, columns, beams, suspended ceilings, doors, shutters, glazing and ceiling membranes.

Para:BS 476-22:1987 Fire tests on building materials and structures. Methods for determination of the fire resistance of non-loadbearing elements of construction (incorporating corrigendum No. 1)

Details test requirements for partitions, fully insulated, partially insulated and uninsulated doorsets and shutter assemblies, ceiling membranes and glazed elements.

Para:BS 476-24:1987 Fire tests on building materials and structures. Method for determination of the fire resistance of ventilation ducts (incorporating corrigendum No. 1)

To determine fire resistance of vertical and horizontal ventilation ducts, with or without branches. To measure ability of fire resistance without dampers.

Para:BS 476-31.1:1983 Fire tests on building materials and structures Methods for measuring smoke penetration through doorsets and shutter assemblies Method of measurement under ambient temperature conditions

Measures air leakage of door and shutter assemblies under ambient temperature conditions as being representative of smoke penetration occurring from the early stages or at a remote position from a fire occurring in a building.

Para:BS 476-6:1989+A1:2009 Fire tests on building materials and structures. Method of test for fire propagation for products (+A1:2009) (incorporating corrigendum No. 1)

termination of the fire test performance of products used as internal linings in buildings, results are expressed as a fire propagation index.

Para:BS 476-7:1997 Fire tests on building materials and structures. Method of test to determine the classification of the surface spread of flame of products (incorporating corrigendum No. 1)

Relates to the method of test to measure lateral spread of flame of vertical products under opposed flow conditions. The flat (composite or assembly) products could be used for walls or ceilings.

Para:BS 8313:1997 Fire sprinkler systems for domestic and residential occupancies - Code of practice

Details recommendations for the design, installation, components, water supplies and backflow protection, commissioning, maintenance and testing of fire sprinkler systems to be used for life safety purposes with additional benefits for property and environmental protection in residential and domestic occupancies
