  • Kitchen extract

Performance Summary

Within the kitchen zone, the kitchen canopy provides an inlet for the fire – and so there is no way of preventing the fire entering the duct. The Firemac FM120 Fire Duct System is thus designed to ensure the system stays in the air (stability) and encases the fire as it travels past the kitchen compartment walls and/or floors and through the ductwork to the external of the build (integrity).


The Firemac FM120 Fire Duct System has been successfully tested to provide 120min stability and integrity in accordance with BS 476: Part 24: 1987 (ISO 6944: 1985). All Firemac testing has been done at a UKAS accredited (or equivalent) laboratory, with the involvement of a relevant 3rd party certification body.
