DESCRIPTION

This standard BS 8423:2010+A1:2016 Fireguards for fires and heating appliances for domestic use. Specification is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 13.220.20 Fire protection

This British Standard specifies the requirements and test methods of fireguards intended for use with heating appliances utilizing organic fuel (e.g. gas, solid fuel, oil) or electricity, and which can be situated in an open area or against or on a wall, or within a recess.

Such appliances can be permanently fixed in position or can be moveable, and can incorporate open fires including combination grates, or closed fires, including room heaters and stoves.

The fireguards specified in this standard are intended to protect people from falling into a fire, prevent burns and reduce the risk of injury, particularly to young children and the infirm. In addition it is intended to reduce the risk of fire resulting from clothing and/or other flammable materials coming into contact with, or in proximity to, burning fuel and/or hot surfaces.

The fireguards specified are not intended to reduce the risk of fires caused by flying particles, which are covered by BS 3248 .

NOTE

Examples of different types of fireguards are illustrated in Annex A.
