What We Offer
We offer a full consultancy service to our clients, helping you to find the most suitable and cost effective approach to any passive fire protection project.
Passive Fire Protection Inspection Services
The importance of passive fire protection is an ever growing industry, PFP is an important component of any fire strategy, playing a vital and increasingly significant role in the safeguarding of people, alongside limiting the damage to building and the content form fire or smoke. We can inspect any previous or ongoing installations to ensure that our solution is above and beyond standard.It is critical that the materials and systems specified are installed in-line with the manufacturer installation details to prevent deviation resulting in premature failure of the fire protection systems.
Our team has over 17 years of knowledge in the industry, providing trust that the work we produce is compliant, and frequently updated to suit industry institute guideline such as IFM and ASFP to ensure our inspection reports specify the latest information.

Fire Door Inspection Services
We regularly undertake inspections in hospitals, high-rise residential buildings, office blocks, university campuses and student halls of residence with the aim of keeping occupants safe by helping to prevent fires spreading.
Our experts check a range of things, including whether each door:
- Has the correct fire rating for its location
- Is fitted properly, without the type of gaps that can damage the building’s compartmentation
- Is not damaged in a way that would impair its performance in the event of a fire
- Has the right hardware and closers, and that they function correctly
- Has the right intumescent strips
- Is properly identified on both the door signage and in the building’s asset register
- Where appropriate, has the right type of glazing and that it is fitted correctly
On completion of your fire door inspection, you will be provided with a detailed report describing each door’s condition and highlighting any necessary remedial work. Where doors are found to be non-compliant.
Fire door certification
Our fully-trained and accredited team offer fire door certification services for both new builds and older sites, including tall buildings and large multi-building campuses.
For new builds, our specialists assess the quality of the initial fire door installations before handover to ensure your site complies with Building Regulations and satisfies your insurer’s requirements. The work includes assigning each door a unique tag number and certificate, which can then be used as the basis of the fire door section of the site’s asset register.
In existing buildings, our inspectors check the condition of the fire doors and recommend any repairs required to improve safety and achieve full RRO compliance. Once faulty doors have been replaced or defects repaired, our team will issue the appropriate new certificates.
Planned preventative maintenance (PPM) and ongoing inspections
We offer fire door PPM and ongoing inspection services tailored to meet the precise needs of the site you are responsible for and to help maintain compliance with the RRO.
Fire doors in some locations are subject to heavy usage and are likely to suffer damage due to everyday wear and tear or vandalism. For example, doors in hospital corridors are liable to be damaged by trolleys, while closers are often damaged in delivery areas and residential blocks due to doors being jammed open.
In such settings, a PPM programme will help to identify and rectify non-compliance issues at the earliest possible time, while also assisting with budget management.
Almost all tall buildings and multi-building campuses have hundreds (and in some cases, thousands) of fire doors, making designing an ongoing inspection regime that complies with the legal requirements of RRO and managing the associated record keeping a complex task.
Records compiled and managed by Trident Fire Protection as part of ongoing fire door inspections can also be used to demonstrate compliance to Fire Service Enforcement Officers, Building Control, insurers and other external bodies.
Fire Damper Inspections
What Are Fire Dampers?
Fire and smoke dampers are fitted in ductwork where it passes through a fire compartment barrier, for example at fire-rated walls and floors. They are designed to shut when a specified temperature or fire/smoke condition is met, preventing the spread of fire and smoke. These are often a forgotten aspect of a buildings fire safety as they are out of sight and are rarely interacted with but are just as vital as fire doors and fire stopping.
We carry out inspections of fire dampers including drop tests and detailed reports on the condition and location of each damper.
Contact Us for further information.
Installation of phenolic, mineral wool or glass fibre insulation boards meets the thermal insulation performances standard currently set out in Part L of the Buildings Regulations.
”A firestop is a fire protection system made of various components used to seal openings and joints in fire-resistance rated wall or floor assemblies.”
This is required under ‘Approved Document B’ of the Building Regulations.
Using the latest materials and tested systems available, Trident Fire Protection can ensure that all service penetrations and structure joints are sealed to the required performance to resist the spread of smoke and fire through the structure of the building.
If you have requirements for the sealing of penetrations or require assistance in choosing the correct system the suits your requirements, Trident Fire Protection are the company for you.
Load Bearing Floor Seals
A buildings floor is usually the only protection from fire and smoke spreading vertically through the structure, services passing between floors create an opening for the passage of fire and smoke.
Using high strength firestop compound a seal can be created around mechanical and electrical service penetrations, which is able to take foot and vehicle traffic.
The Firestop Compound provides a fire resisting seal around service penetrations within fire rated walls and floors. Tested to BS476: Part 20 1987, Firestop Compound provides up to 6 hours fire protection.
- Provides up to 6 hours fire protection
- No smoke emission
- No maintenance required
- Load Bearing
Fire Rated Walls & Ceilings
Fire rated walls and ceilings can be essential in stopping the spread of fire and smoke through a building. We can specify and install specialist systems from manufacturers such as British Gypsum, Knauf and Promat.
Compartment Inspection & Survey
It is a requirement of the Fire Safety Order that the ‘responsible person’ ensures safe means of escape are available at all times. A fire risk assessment will typically not include an extensive assessment of fire compartmentation in out of the reach areas, for example above suspended ceilings. As such, a detailed compartmentation survey should be completed.
During this specialist survey, we access all areas normally concealed from view where fire and smoke could pass unnoticed through the structure of a building. We utilise specialist surveying cameras to view areas usually inaccessible, to ascertain if the construction of the building meets the required fire resistance standards.
We offer Three levels of service; Visual (unintrusive), Semi Intrusive and Fully Intrusive compartmentation inspection and surveying services, having trained and experienced surveyors allows us to give you a full report on any issues that may reduce the effectiveness of a buildings fire strategy.
We also inspect fire doors using a reporting software, which creates a report with photographic evidence of any defects or issues. We cover the North East of England and Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool, Sheffield, Edinburgh, Leeds, Leicester, Bradford and Coventry.

Impact & Blast Proof Partitions
Impact and blast proof walls are installed in high risk areas such as electricity transformer rooms, document archive stores, gas plants and distilleries.
These systems can withstand huge pressures involved in explosions and impact from debris. Formed from fire resistant cement core sandwiched between two pressed steel sheets they can withstand fire for up to 4 hours.
Rigid and Semi-Rigid Board solutions provide integrity to Structural Steelwork Beams and Columns. These systems are cost effective and provide many additional benefits.
Systems that help to reduce the sound transfer within buildings. Sealing of all penetrations and closing off open cavities.
Working with main contractors we offer a specialist service in the assistance of perimeter air sealing. We can provide an initial survey and inspection, carry out the works on site and final air integrity tests. We work within building regulations to meet part L of current building regulations.
Fire Curtains & Cavity Barriers
Fire and smoke curtains are critical in reducing the spread of smoke and fire throughout the structure of a building. They are a cost-effective solution to compartmentalising large areas and are quickly installed with minimal disruption to the surrounding areas.
Barriers come in different systems offering integrity only, or integrity and insulation.
Integrity only barriers should not be used in timber truss constructed roof spaces, if you have very thin single membrane material installed in timber truss areas this is not sufficient as the heat from fire radiates through these barriers, igniting the non-fire side well below the 30 minutes required.
We can specify and install a variety of different smoke and fire barriers to meet your requirements of up to 120 minutes compartmentation.
