We offer passive fire protection consultation services that work with you to ensure you comply with all the relevant legislation. The ‘Approved Document B Fire Safety’, Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 and BS9999 are just some of the documents defining the roles of passive fire protection requirements in buildings. Not every business has the money to carry out all aspects of fire protection required. usually, the measures required have to be prioritised and a staged approach is applied to ensure that work is fully compliant and in sync with a companies financial capabilities.
Asbestos Surveying and Sampling
We can carry out asbestos surveys and sampling on premises and any materials you suspect to be an Asbestos Containing Material. Asbestos is one of the biggest problems facing building owners and it is still present in many areas of buildings.
Fire Door Inspection
Fire doors are an essential part of a buildings compartmentation. They allow for the movement of people around the building whilst retaining the fire resistance. Without regular maintenance and inspection fire doors become damaged and worn, resulting in them being not fit for purpose. Gaps should be 2-4mm with threshold gaps at 6-10mm. they should be free closing and have combined intumescent brush strips installed to resist fire and smoke for the required period of time in the event of a fire. We can carry out full fire door inspections and surveys in accordance with the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005.

Over time compartment walls and floors can become damaged by contractors installing new services such as pipes and cables. These penetrations allow for the passage of smoke and fire through compartment walls, which can reduce persons ability to escape the building in the event of a fire.
Compartmentation surveys identify any issues where services have passed through compartment walls and have not been sealed correctly. the surveys can then be used to price for any works required or be given to contractors who have caused damage for a counterclaim for the repairs to be carried out.
