BDM12 Insurer Requirements for the Implementation of Fire Safety Engineering Solutions

Published

2009

Although this document has been written on behalf of insurers, the technical content is intended for use by fire safety engineers and everyone who has involvement in the development and delivery of a fire engineering solution. The format and framework that it follows is based on the British Standard for fire safety engineering in buildings, BS 7974: 2001: Application of fire safety engineering principles to the design of buildings. 

BDM13 Fire Safety Engineering - A Guide for Insurers

Published

2011

This revised document provides a simple guide on fire safety engineering for the commercial property insurer. It updates the 2002 version produced through ABI’s Medium Term Research Strategy, and fulfils the request from RISCAuthority members for a simple guide on fire safety engineering.

RC68 Recommendations for fire safety in catering establishments

Published

2020

These recommendations apply to the installation, management, operation and maintenance of cooking appliances and related equipment in commercial catering kitchens. These include various forms of ovens, grilles, griddles, broilers, rotisseries and bratt pans which – together with deep fat fryers – present serious fire hazards. The advice includes a section specifically concerning frying ranges used in fish and chip shops that are open to the public.

BDM1 Fire protection of buildings - Essential principles

Published

2015

Essential Principles is one of a number of documents addressing specific areas of relevance which together form the RISCAuthority Design guide for the fire protection of buildings. It contains the essential principles on which the RISCAuthority Design guide is based.

 

This document outlines the basic principles that all designers and their supporting consultants shall consider during the design process when they are taking either a prescriptive or fire engineering approach (or a combination of both). The principles should also be followed for major extensions and upgrades to existing building structures.

BDM2 Fire protection of buildings - Core Document - Compartmentation

Published

2008

This core document is one of a number of documents addressing specific areas of relevance which together form the RISCAuthority Design Guide for the fire protection of buildings. It deals with the fundamental design topic of compartmentation and describes in detail the function of compartmentation, and how it can be achieved.

BDM3 Fire protection of buildings - Warehouses and storage buildings 1 - Design principles

Published

2008

The FPA Design Guide for the Fire Protection of Buildings is made up of many documents, including a number of premises-specific Sector Guides. Each Sector Guide is in two parts: Part 1 covers the design principles for a particular type of premises and Part 2 is concerned with fire safety management.

 

This particular document is concerned with design principles for fire safety in warehouses and storage buildings and it does not address all of the essential principles in detail. It describes measures and makes recommendations which, if adopted, will assist in the design and construction of warehouse and storage buildings (or extensions thereto) which are less likely to catch fire.

BDM4 Fire protections of buildings - Stand alone cold stores 1 - Design principles

Published

2004

The FPA Design Guide for the Fire Protection of Buildings is made up of many documents, including a number of premises-specific Sector Guides. Each Sector Guide is in two parts: Part 1 covers the design principles for a particular type of premises and Part 2 is concerned with fire safety management.

 

This particular document deals with the design principles for passive fire safety in standalone cold stores (‘cold stores’ in the rest of the document). It describes measures and makes recommendations which, if adopted, will assist in the design and construction of cold store buildings (or extensions thereto) which are less likely to catch fire. Should fire occur, however, the applied design principles will help minimise fire and smoke damage and thus minimise business interruption.

BDM5 Fire protection of buildings - Food processing factories 1- Design principles

Published

2004

The FPA Design Guide for the Fire Protection of Buildings is made up of many documents, including a number of premises-specific Sector Guides. Each Sector Guide is in two parts: Part 1 covers the design principles for a particular type of premises and Part 2 is concerned with fire safety management.

 

This particular document deals with the design principles for passive fire safety in food processing factories. It describes measures and makes recommendations which, if adopted, will assist in the design and construction of food factory buildings (or extensions thereto) which are less likely to catch fire. Should fire occur, however, the applied design principles will help minimise fire and smoke damage and thus minimise business interruption. In addition, this guide may also help in identifying ways to reduce fire risks in existing food factories and/or similar food processing activities.

BDM6 Fire protection of buildings - Core Document - Protection of openings and service penetrations from fire

Published

2005

The FPA Design Guide for the Fire Protection of Buildings is made up of many documents, including essential principals, core documents, and premises-specific guides.

 

This core document deals with the protection of openings and service penetrations from fire.

BDM7 Fire protection of buildings - Protected zone

Published

2004

The FPA Design Guide for the Fire Protection of Buildings is made up of many documents, including essential principals, core documents, and premises-specific guides.

 

This document deals with a single item of technicality, the concept of the protected zone, a design principle which, if adopted, will assist in the design and construction of buildings which are less likely to catch fire. Should fire occur, however, the applied design principle will help limit fire and smoke damage and thus minimise business interruption.
