Since plenum spaces house HVAC systems, they require airflow to operate successfully. This airflow creates an oxygen-rich environment that could become a potential fire hazard if exposed to flames. Ensuring mechanical systems in plenum spaces are insulated with fire-rated materials is important for both safety and system performance.
Fire safety codes regarding plenum spaces are nuanced and evolving, which is why we are hosting an Insulation Intel® webinar: Insulating Combustible Pipes in Plenum Spaces on April 21st, 2021 at 2:00 PM ET. Our hosts, Natalia Maximova from JM and Greg Newman from Insulation Midwest , will dive into the importance of insulating pipes in plenum spaces, current tests and code requirements for materials used in plenums, and what performance means in terms of fire safety.
