Hello all users!

4.APPLICATION/LIMITATION
4.1 May be used on vessels granted with applicable refrigerating additional notations, for insulation of cold stores. The polyurethane foam together with its surface lining shall satisfy low flame spread properties as per 2010 FTP Code, Part 5.
4.2 Valid for use when applicable regulations do not require non-combustible material for bulkheading.
4.3 Flame spread, smoke characteristics and calorific value of the additional lining, if any, to be as per applicable regulations.
4.4 The fitting aboard to be the same as used for the tests.

What does "bulkheading" in "4.2 Valid for use when applicable regulations do not require non-combustible material for bulkheading" mean?

It is something to do with dividing by means of bulkheads?

What do you think?

Thank you.

Ow! There are a lot of mistakes in that. Where did you find it?

It's clear that you already know what a bulkhead is. Your guess might be correct.

Some English speakers might call bulkheads bulkheading: Be careful not to break through that bulkheading! So it might also mean that combustible materials can be applied to bulkheads.

Let's see if someone else can give you a definite answer.

'Bulkheading' is similar in construction use to 'flooring' and 'walling'. These words are refer to the materials used in the things. In many contexts there is no significant difference in meaning.

Yep, that's just how I was looking at it.
