As with any other life-saving product, a fire door should be checked regularly to ensure it functions correctly and is ready to use. It should be considered in exactly the same way as testing active fire protection systems. Periodic checks should be carried out at least every six months, or more regularly depending on the traffic using the door. Fire doors must be maintained correctly in line with the Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety).
Fire stop solutions are designed to restore the continuous fire-resistance of wall or floor assemblies, impeding the spread of fire by filling the openings in them with fire-resistant materials. FireRite carry out fire compartmentation surveys, design and implement any works required to ensure people and property are protected.
Fire and smoke dampers are installed where ductwork (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) passes through fire compartment walls and floors.
It is important to stop fire spreading through the ductwork and plugging the gap in the fire defences plays a crucial role in a building’s fire safety system. Maintenance of safety systems is a Legislative requirement, if a damper failed to work correctly the fire could spread, so the difference between a well maintained, working fire damper and an non-maintained, partially working fire damper could be the difference between life and death.
Fire curtains help prevent the spread of fire and smoke, containing them within the affected area. Fire curtains are a secure, unobtrusive and cost-effective alternative to fire doors, fire shutters and sprinkler systems.
