Coopers Fire are pleased to announce we have achieved full compliance for the British Standard BS 8524.

BS 8524 Part 1

Part 1 contains the Specification for active fire curtain barriers and comprises nine annexes (A to I). Each Annex provides information, requirements and guidance on how to test for each aspect of the standard. BS 8524 Part 1 is only achieved if all of Annexes are satisfied and approved by a third party certification body.


BS 8524 Part 2

Part 2 is a code of practice for application, installation and maintenance of active fire curtain barriers and like Part 1, is made up of Annexes A through to I. All of the Annexes for Part 2 include guidance on installation checklists, commissioning and maintenance of a fire curtain.


Third Party Certification


Under BS 8524 Parts 1 & 2, only third party certified fire curtain products are acceptable and this covers third party certification on the specification (part 1) and application, installation and maintenance (part 2). The third party approving body must also be a UKAS accredited certification body.



Coopers Fire have worked closely with IFC Certification Ltd to ensure compliance with BS 8524 Parts 1 & 2 and IFC Certification has been accredited by UKAS to issue third party certification for this standard.
