Rule ID: SUK/1010/v1.0
This article describes the Fire Stopping Area Rule that has been developed by Solibri UK Ltd as part of the BIM Coordination + Library.
The rule is available for Solibri Office 9.13.1 or later via a Solibri Extension, which can be downloaded from the Solibri Solution Center.
The article covers the following topics:
The parameters in this rule must be defined by the user to give meaningful results.
To learn more about the Fire Stopping Solution, please see Introduction to Fire Stopping of Service Penetration Checks.
This rule is used to indicate both the gross and net area taken up by each fire seal and its associated services.
The rule first finds all fire seal components on compartmentation through their corresponding filters. The rule then finds all pipes, ducts, and cable carriers that intersect the fire seals, returning these as result to report the gross area and net area of the fire seals.
In the Parameters view, you can define the compartmentation, fire seals, pipes, ducts, and cable carriers to report gross and net area of fire seals.
The Services and Fire Seals filter of these rules requires users to set up classifications. It is also good practice to use classifications for the Compartmentation filter, for the following reasons:
Help structure model geometry allowing easy identification and visualization in the classification providing a clear indication of what will be checked.
Where present, Services and Fire Penetration Seals will require classification values to interact with the FireStoppingRequirements.xlsx.
Compartmentation filter: Defines the compartmentation walls and floors to have fire seal gross and net areas reported.
Pipes and Ducts filter: Defines service components to have their areas subtracted from the fire seals gross area to calculate the net area of the fire seal.
Cable Carriers filter: Defines service components to have their areas subtracted from the fire seals gross area to calculate the net area of the fire seal.
Fire Seals filter: Defines the fire seal components to have gross areas and net areas checked positions checked.
Fire seal ID Property Reference: Specifies the property of the fire seal to categorize results by in the results view.
The rule categorizes low () severity results by the Fire seal ID of the fire seal(s) to report their gross and net areas.
In addition, you can specify the severity classes according to your preferences and priorities in the Severity Parameters dialog. For example, you can filter specific fire seal components to have critical or low severity results based on their Fire Seal type.
