Our highly experienced inspectors hold current diplomas and certificates in passive fire protection, cavity barriers, fire seals, linear gap seals and fire doors. This allows us to carry out surveys and identify whether the current systems have been installed correctly and are providing your building the correct protection. Our survey will note and report on any new breaches in fire walls, floors, and fire barriers. We can also provide a comprehensive survey of fire door compliance.
The fire protection of any building is a vital part of the safety of both the structure and its occupants. With this in mind we commit ourselves to provide you with a comprehensive study and survey of your premises to ascertain the current level of protection and report on any requirements to upgrade to current building regulations.
Passive fire protection aims to contain and delay the spread of smoke, fire and heat throughout a building. This is provided by sealing around penetrating services such as cables, pipes, ductwork etc. through walls and floors to compartmentalise the property in accordance with your fire strategy. This provides vital minutes to saves lives of the occupants, the fire service, building assets and the structure of the building.
New breaches are usually produced by contractors installing new cables, pipes etc.. (typically fire alarm upgrades or new data cables).
After these services have been installed these new openings are not properly sealed and are therefore a breach in the wall which will act as a passage for smoke and fire.
If you are responsible for the maintenance of an occupied building and require a comprehensive survey please contact us to discuss how we can help.
Having this information will allow the facilities management to action the correct measures required to make your premises safe for all occupants.
Our consultants and surveyors are fully qualified to undertake your surveys and assessments and hold current qualifications recognised by The Institute of Fire Safety Managers and the Institute of Fire Engineers.
