Re: Penetration of Fire Separation, Article

With reference to your letter of July 27, 1989 regarding the application of Article

For the purposes of Sentence we would consider the use of a tested and listed fire penetration assembly to be an acceptable method of protecting the penetration. You provide no details of your device, but it must have been tested by a certifying agency accredited by the Standards Council of Canada, to maintain the 2 hour rating required for the separation, and be installed in strict compliance with the terms of the listing.
