Fire Doors Add to Urmson Fire FIRAS Accreditation
Urmson Fire Specialists Ltd has extended its list of industry accreditations by becoming FIRAS certified for its fire-stopping and fire door installation services.
As a leading company within the fire protection service industry, Urmson Fire Specialists have been working hard to add Fire Doors to their 3rd party accreditation through the FIRAS scheme, which is operated and managed by Warringtonfire.
FIRAS certification is a UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited certification scheme that promotes good practice for the installation and maintenance of passive fire protection products. Since it was established in 1994, the FIRAS scheme has become the leading certification body for this sector and covers fire door installation, maintenance, and surveying, all of which Urmson Fire Specialists offer.
Vikki Beare, UFS Manager comments ‘To gain our FIRAS Certification, we had to meet various requirements and I am so proud of the team who worked hard to make this happen. It was a combined effort to make sure we not only reached the high level of requirements but that we have continued to meet the expectations since.’
As a company that installs, maintains and repairs fire doors, the team at Urmson Fire Specialists recognises the critical importance and impact that correctly installed and maintained fire doors can have on the safety and integrity of a building during a fire and towards a building’s fire compartmentation. With this certification, customers now have peace of mind, knowing that the quality and standard of the work Urmson Fire Specialists offer to install and maintain fire doors, and the level of the inspection reports produced, all meet the high standards set by the FIRAS scheme.
Urmson Fire Specialists continued investment into training and development will also mean that all of their engineers will have in-depth product knowledge of a range of passive fire protection systems.
