South Africa has very strict fire safety and protection against fire regulations. The act says that occupants will be protected. The intensity of fire within the building and spread to other buildings must be minimised. Geberit fire protection for waste and drainage systems is fire resistant and sound insulating.
Domestic installation risk
Unsecured feed-throughs allow fires to spread rapidly between rooms and floors. Preventive fire protection delays this to keep people safe from fire and smoke.
Sanitary installation solutions
- Fire-retarding bulkhead using approved Geberit GIS
- Fire-retarding bulkhead using approved Geberit fire protection sleeves
Geberit systems meet the relevant legal requirements for fire protection, and evidence of this is available. With the system technology; planning and installation work is minimum.
Geberit products for fire protection
Geberit installation systems
Used in combination with appropriate partition walls, Duofix and GIS installation systems are suitable for a fire-retarding bulkhead for up to 90 minutes.
Fire protection sleeves
The fire protection sleeve RS90 Plus prevents fire from spreading via the drainage system. Under the influence of heat, the material in the fire protection sleeve swells, completely compressing the discharge pipe and thereby preventing the fire from spreading to other floors or rooms.
