Fire Compartmentation Analysis

Fire Compartmentation is an important part of Passive Fire Protection. Providing compartmentation to current Building Regulation and British Standards requirements involves sub-dividing buildings into manageable areas of risk, thereby preventing the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases and providing valuable time to evacuate the building.

What is a fire compartmentation survey & why is it important to have one?

All public buildings will have fire compartmentation built into them to prevent the spread of fire and smoke and provide safety and protection for the people within the building. Over time, the infrastructure, usage and design of the building will change. New data and electrical cables, pipes and ducting will be installed; it is for this reason that a fire compartmentation survey should be carried out to assess what changes have been made in the infrastructure and to identify if there are any breaches in the fire compartmentation wall.

Compartmentation is achieved by dividing the premises into ‘fire compartments’ by:

  • fire doors
  • floors and walls of fire-resisting materials and construction
  • cavity barriers within roof voids
  • installing a fully tested fire stopping system to ensure services such as cables, ducts and pipe work are sealed where they breach compartment walls and floors.

What we do

  • An initial assessment to the building and the fire compartmentation is logged on our online reporting system to identify the location of fire breach, type of breach and the remedial actions to rectify the issue; a detailed report with photographic evidence will be provided on completion.
  • A detailed quotation will be provided to carry out the remedial works.
  • If we are engaged to carry out the remedial works, on completion a detailed report will be provided with an IFC Certificate of compliance and conformity.

Fire Damper Inspection & Compliance

All fire safety systems must be annually inspected & professionally maintained by certified engineers to ensure the safety of building occupants – a faulty damper will not prevent the spread of fire/smoke.
