FIRE COMPARTMENTATION SURVEY
Fact: More than 650 buildings surveyed every year
Fire compartmentation is the subdivision of buildings into manageable areas of risk, in order to prevent the spread of fire and smoke and to provide adequate means of escape. To meet legal requirements of the RRO, building owners and occupiers must ensure that the fire compartmentation in their buildings is robust and being adequately managed and maintained.
Our fire compartmentation surveys will identify any potential risk and breaches, and ensure your compartments are compliant with HTM 05-02, HTM 05-03 and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Our standard fire compartmentation survey covers the following:
An inspection of the overall condition of the existing fire compartments
An assessment of the condition and effectiveness of the sealing of wall / soffit interfaces
An inspection of existing fire seals applied to service penetrations through fire compartment lines
An assessment of the materials used to seal existing service penetrations / linear joints
The presence of any damage to fire compartment lines
The presence of any unprotected structural steelwork within fire compartments
The presence of fire dampers within ducts passing through designated fire compartment lines
Where fire dampers are present an assessment of the positioning and fixing methods used
An assessment of the materials and methods used to construct any dry lined walls which form part of the fire compartmentation
An assessment of any specific issues relating to the ability to reinstate fire compartmentation
Remedial work based upon the report can be undertaken
