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 fire service engineers are certified in fire protection and advanced level core, penetration sealing systems and cavity barriers certified and are trained to survey a range of building types including hospitals, schools, universities, public buildings, hotel and leisure, offices, retail outlets and more

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
