Fire-resistant plastering is mainly found in industrial buildings, but can also be used in civil construction projects. They are an indivisible part of the fire safety equipment of the building in accordance with Section 5(1)(a) of Act No. 133/1985, on Fire Safety, and Section 9 of Ordinance No. 246/2001, on Fire Prevention. Periodic inspections of fire-resistant plastering are therefore mandatory at least once a year, unless stated differently. Fire-resistant plastering inspections are done to the extent and in the manner established by the legal regulations, standards-related requirements and the original documentation of the manufacturer.
Fire-resistant plastering inspections are important due to:
- prevention of losses to human and animal health, ensuring safe evacuations,
- prevention of losses due to the spread of fire and smoke on the property of the affected building and adjacent buildings that are at risk from the fire,
- prevention of penalties during preventive checks of the FD,
- enabling effective and safe intervention of the FD,
- application of insurance claims based on valid operational checks.
How to recognize fire-resistant plastering on steel or concrete structure?
Fire-resistant plastering on any structure has a typical stalactite structure. It is applied in layers up to 70mm depending on the type of the component and required fire resistance. You can learn more about the application used from the project documentation or from destructive testing.
Fire-resistant plastering inspections shall be carried out on structures of steel and components of concrete, glued carbon slats and on concrete structures poured into trapezoidal sheets.
