Fire Stopping Survey
A Fire Stopping Survey is an integral part of a passive fire protection plan. Without the proper preventative measures in place, a fire can rapidly spread through the structural integrity of a building putting many lives at risk.
A Fire Stopping Survey from Lantern Fire Prevention can ensure that this isn’t the case should a fire event unfortunately occur.
A Fire Stopping Survey will determine areas where fire resisting walls have been breached, so the correct remedial works can be performed to restrict the spread of fire and smoke through your building. Any penetrations in the fire resisting barriers throughout should be fire-stopped using the approved products in the correct applications. It is also vital to ensure the fire resisting element is maintained above fire doors.
We can identify the problem areas and perform a detailed inspection above suspended ceilings, loft spaces and between floors to ensure fire cannot extend through the building by means of travelling through the voids.
Also a samples of doorsets should be checked to verify fire stopping behind the architrave we suggested sample of 10% of a similar batch of doors checked, with further checks if problems are identified.
You will need confirm which doorsets are supposed to be fire doors (plus rating).
