Fire and Smoke Barriers

Our expert teams can install fire and smoke barriers to new builds or existing buildings. These barriers are extremely important to keep fire and smoke contained for longer and to keep escape routes clear, giving as much time as possible for evacuation. Compartmentation using fire and smoke barriers splits your building into more manageable sections and should fire break out, there is more chance of it being contained in smaller areas to give a far greater chance of escape for occupants and staff, but also to save more of your building fabric. Smoke barriers are incredibly important to prevent smoke and toxic gases from spreading easily across your premises and threatening lives. We offer a range of passive fire prevention barriers and would be happy to discuss your needs.

Our Process

1. Risk Evaluation

Implving a fire strategy and discussing the fire protection design & installation requirements at the early stages of any new project is critical to ensure the installation of passive fire protection systems can be undertaken inline with specification.

2. Protection

The installation of fire tested systems to form adequate passive fire protection within a building provides compartmentation or fire resistance to parts of the buildings fabrics to ensure that fire and smoke cannot pass from one compartment to another within a period of time. The fire protection of the buildings structure also plays a crucial part in maintaining the safe evacuation of occupants.

3. Record

Passive Fire Protection systems must always be recorded, that’s why we use specialist electronic recording software to ensure all of the passive fire protection systems installed is fully recorded and given individual unique seal numbers which plays a key part of the buildings health & safety file.

4. Certification

The certification is a valuable part of the process, being third party accredited by FIRAS this demonstrates our competence to install passive fire protection systems to strict manufacturers specification and also record and provide the required documentation.

5. Compliant

Compliance matters, that’s why we have compliance managers who will regularly attend during the works to carry out inspections of our engineers to assess that the works are being installed inline with fire tested solutions and manufacturer specifications.

6. Maintenance

Regular maintenance surveys must be completed to any system which is installed as part of a life safety system, Fire compartments can be breached by other trades and not reported during a buildings life it is critical that any breaches are suitably sealed to ensure the safety of the occupants and provide sufficient time for the evacuation of the building or to assist the emergency services attending.
