Our review shows that, since 2011, half of those claims relating to warranty cover for Building Regulation non-compliance have been related to fire safety. This review has identified four principal areas where improvements can be made: n Cavity barriers and firestopping. n Firestopping of service penetrations. n The use of intumescent collars and wraps to service penetrations. n Self-closing fire doors. The guidance discussed in this article focuses on the above, drawing on examples of interventions made during construction.
