One of the biggest Threats to building structures occurs when gaps and cavities, either in the the building envelope and structure or as the result of service penetration, exist between fire separating walls and floors giving fire, smoke and heat the opportunity to spread vertically and laterally, rapidly and with devastating effect. Firestopping is the sealing of these gaps to ensure the integrity of the compartment line.
Older buildings often lack correct fire stopping, we are able to carry out a full photographic fire stopping survey using Boris software which has been developed with the needs of our company and our clients in mind. Once works have been carried out another photograph is taken of completed works to form a completed report.
We can remediate works contained within FRA’s (fire risk assessments) which have been carried out by other companies
As an accredited passive fire protection specialist, Nene Valley Fire knowledgeable contract managers will assess the situation and advise on the best fire stopping methods.
