Fire Rating Classification – Aluminium Trims

January 2020

QIC Trims can confirm the clarifiction of ‘Fire Rated’ Trims.

Some other suppliers claim to have products with fire resistance, however Approved Document B is the Fire Safety guidance within the UK Building regulations, the document which details the requirement for internal walls and ceiling linings. Internal walls and ceilings require classification within buildings as they have large surface area within a room. Skirting, window frames and trims are all classed as “Narrow Members”. These items are not considered as a wall and therefore do not require classification.
We will continue to offer products of the highest standard and with the utmost integrity to not mislead our market or customers with tests that are not required by building regulations. Any queries please contact us directly.
