Lantern Fire Prevention are BM Trada Q-Mark Accredited!

The UKAS accredited BM TRADA certification is a prestigious third-party fire services certification, for the manufacture, installation and maintenance services for Fire Doors and Fire Stopping. On behalf of Lantern Fire Prevention, Kyle Dickson an Approved Installer & Maintainer attended and completed the voluntary certification, providing a clear demonstration of our commitment to quality.

There is a legal requirement for manufacturers to demonstrate the ability of their products to resist the passage and spread of fire. However, if these products are not properly installed to the manufacturers guidelines, their fire resistant capabilities can be seriously compromised.

The BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme has been designed to provide reassurance to specifiers, contractors and end users that the product they have chosen has been installed correctly and that it should perform as intended and in line with both their instructions and their fire test evidence.

In order to become certified under the BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme, Kyle was nominated on behalf of Lantern Fire Prevention, as the Lead Technician who will each take responsibility for a number of handpicked operatives.

Throughout the certification process, Kyle was required to demonstrate and complete all of the specific training requirements for the certification, such as:

  • Demonstrate competence to install fire stopping products as well as supervise the fitting of such products for all four fire stopping categories

  • Attended BM Trada's in depth training and live examination programme

  • Completion of a number of on-site competence assessments

Lantern Fire Prevention, in partnership with BM TRADA’s Q-Mark Fire Door Installation and Fire Stopping Scheme, aim to:

  • Raise the on-going standard of installation of Fire Doors and Fire Stopping

  • Ensure the product’s fire resistance capabilities are maintained

  • Ensure the product’s service life is maximised through correct installation

  • Provide peace of mind that the Installer is suitably qualified and that their work is continually assessed by an independent body

  • Provide specifiers with the means to demonstrate that the installation meets the required standard.

If you have any questions regarding our new certification or any of our passive fire protection services, please feel free to contact either Andy Clark or James Woolley on 0300 383 0031 or email at and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.
