Spotting breaches of integrity in compartment walls early can help save lives. Without the correct fire stopping, a fire can spread freely from one intended compartment to another, regardless of structural materials or fire doors.
Sometimes these breaches or penetrations are present due to being overlooked during the construction phase; at other times, services may have been added to a building throughout its lifetime, creating unwelcome openings through fire-resisting walls.
Whether commercial, office, residential, or anything in-between, we aim to keep occupants as safe as can by helping you stop any fire in its tracks. Instructing one of our accredited fire-stopping specialists to survey within your building will help you identify any risk areas and the necessary remedial works to be carried out.
Upon completion of the survey, clients receive a comprehensive and easy-to-understand report including:
- Details of any penetrations or other breaches of compartment lines.
- Details of any attempt at passive fire protection works that have been carried out incorrectly, such as using expanding foam to surround service pipes or cables.
- Photographic evidence of all findings so the client can identify them quickly.
- Suggestions for suitable remedial works.
We carry out surveys in multiple sectors, including education, military, hospitality, leisure, industrial, and health, to name a few.
