Fire separation - Plant room / Warehouse


Recommended Posts

Please can I ask anyone for their thoughts on this one please...?

New warehouse has been constructed; approx 500msq footprint. Sub-divided for storage (vertical / high racking); offices; kitchenette; plant room (on mezzanine).

Warehouse / storage area is separated with brick wall from floor to apex of roof.

But separation between warehouse / storage area and Plant room on mezzanine is stud wall with plasterboard. But, only one side (which is the warehouse side) has plasterboard lining - the Plant Room side is exposed studwork??

Should not both sides be plaster boarded (and taped and sealed gaps??) to protect the stud work completely?

I've attached photo taken from the Plant room side to help show what I am waffling on about!!

Any guidance / help always appreciated.
