Products – Regulations – Certification

 

Is Your Building Compliant?

Lives and property are at stake if breaches of compartmentation are not correctly filled, as fire and smoke would travel quickly through the building. Moreover, if this happened, the responsible person may face criminal proceedings based on corporate liability.

It is the duty of the responsible person for the building to ensure that suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment is carried out, following guidance from the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Under the order, anyone who has control of premises or anyone who has a degree of control over certain areas or systems may be a ‘responsible person’.

Fire Stopping Survey

As part of the fire stopping survey, ClearView aims to identify the breaches of fire compartmentation within the building(s). Examples of this are cables, pipes, ducting and other services that have penetrated the fire-resisting barriers. Following the building fire strategy, the appropriate certified fire stopping products and installation methods are chosen to seal the breaches.

Fire Stopping site survey

After ClearView identifies the problem areas, then an intrusive inspection can be carried out within risers, above ceiling tiles and between floor spaces. We can also open up existing ceilings to identify all breaches and conduct repairs once the fire stopping elements are signed off. Next, we produce a detailed fire stopping survey report that encompasses the breach locations and photographs which are taken from on our state-of-the-art Boris software.

Fire Stopping Installation

As part of our quality process, we log each fire stopping requirement and photograph the area before work commences, this is to ensure the client understands the current state of the non-conformity of the fire safety barrier.

All Passive Fire Protection installation works are carried out by our fully trained, NVQ Level 2 engineers. Supervision is provided by a minimum of a SSSTS (qualified supervisor) or on larger sites SMSTS (site manager).
