Brandtätningar och brandcellsindelning - En fallstudie

Österman, Christin and Persson, Alexander (2013)
Programmes in Helesingborg
Abstract
The purpose of this diploma project is to identify what methods there are for fire sealing between fire compartments and to critically analyze the process and choice of fire seals in a specific construction project. The project is an apartment building belonging to Building class Br1, “Kvarter Frigg 1” in Helsingborg. The choice of which fire sealing method to use is controlled by Boverkets byggregler’s, BBR's, requirements and regulations as well as the different combinations of building materials. The report thus begins with a literature study and a review of BBR's regulations regarding fire. The fire behavior of the most common structural materials is reviewed. An investigation of the most common fire seals available on the market today... (More)

The choice of which fire sealing method to use is controlled by Boverkets byggregler’s, BBR's, requirements and regulations as well as the different combinations of building materials. The report thus begins with a literature study and a review of BBR's regulations regarding fire. The fire behavior of the most common structural materials is reviewed. An investigation of the most common fire seals available on the market today is performed and the factors influencing the spread of fire and smoke are presented. Finally, the project "Kvarter Frigg 1" is discussed and analyzed. The main focus of the work is fire seals and its properties, pros and cons are studied as well as their most common uses. Through an analysis of the project “Kvarter Frigg 1", a picture is obtained of how fire protection in a real case scenario is designed and how the choice of methods is motivated. An optimal solution for fire protection and fire compartmentalization is not achieved, as the market for fire protection has a wide variety of options. The most common solution, however, is sealant as it is highly versatile. (Less)
