New Practice for the On-Site Inspection of Fire Resistive Duct Systems

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, stimulation of research, development and maintenance of standards and related documents for performance of buildings, their elements, components, including means and methods of fabrication and assembly; and the description, measurement, prediction, improvement, and management of the overall performance of buildings and building-related facilities. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having a mutual interest.

Keywords

Duct Insulation; Fire Protection

Rationale

Currently, there is no document that has been produced in the industry that is a consensus of the industry manufacturers and contractors. The ASTM Standard proposed creates a key document that has been developed by manufacturers, contractors AND those inspection agencies that provide inspections. ASTMs new document will provide in mandatory code acceptable language the method to inspect fire resistive duct systems. Architects will specify this standard as the inspections are mandated by Chapter 17 of the International Building Code.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
