Fire rated buildings


Can you have exterior soffit vents under cantelievered living space in a Type V (1 hour) rated building?

No.

If I understand the question, that is.

But no.

Had the same problem a while ago. Sourced some intumescent vents from England.

If you can show a 1 hour fire rating for a soffit vent then you can.

You can use a vent with a linked fire shutter. Just be sure the vent is rated for horizontal application.
