Structural Boarding from the Professionals at CRS

Structural steel will soften and become unable to bear heavy loads in the heat from a fire, which could lead to full structural collapse of your building. However, we can fit structural fire boarding to shield your steel, giving up to four hours of protection in the event of a fire. Not only can this save the lives of both building occupants and fire fighters, but it can also be the difference between a building that can be repaired and reused after a fire and a building that has to be demolished. While it is a legal requirement and a duty of care to have suitable passive fire protection, it also makes financial sense to add structural boarding and all other required fire protections to your buildings. Contact the experts at CRS to book your site survey.

STRUCTURAL BOARDING

The Process Of Works

step 1

Risk Evaluation

Implying 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.

step 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.

step 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.

step 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.

step 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.

step 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.
