Fire doors, curtains and compartmentalisation of buildings are the fundamentals of passive fire protection, as they help to limit the spread of fire and smoke. They work as an integrated system in order to protect lives and buildings by compartmentalising the fire and creating and protecting an escape route.
Our passive fire protection services help our customers to prevent the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases by dividing premises into fire compartments through use of fire doors and other fire-resistant barriers. This provides adequate means of escape in case of fire, enabling time for the occupants to safely evacuate the premises.
All organisations and places of work that employ five or more people require fire risk assessments as well as licensed premises. At Compliance Group we provide an in-depth assessment using a method of nine stage review.
A reliable and effective fire alarm system is essential for all business premises. As stated by The Regulatory Reform Order 2005, each premise has a responsibility to ensure all fire alarm systems are designed, installed and verified with the relevant certification.
Fire extinguishers are a critical part of fire safety. The Regulatory Reform Order 2005 requires the suitable provision of fire equipment to be made available and routinely serviced and maintained and for fire extinguishers to be installed and maintained.
Fire doors and curtains provide maximum protection during an outbreak of fire and are designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke on premises.
Compartmentalisation of buildings is one of the fundamentals of passive fire protection, as it helps to limit the spread of fire and smoke.
It is a legal requirement to ensure that the lights are regularly tested and maintained to provide protection, as emergency lighting illuminates escape routes.
