Details :

Fire stopping and compartmentation is constructed to prevent the spread of fire to or from another part of the same building, or an adjoining building.

Compartmentation subdivides the building into areas of manageable risk, to provide adequate means of escape, and to provide fire separation for adjoining buildings.

The fire resistance of a fire compartment wall or floor is defined in time in minutes and requires fire integrity and fire insulation.

Coming from an electrical engineering back ground I found the course very interesting and what I have taken away from it should prove very helpful in my current role which involves a lot of electrical installation works."
