Fire Safety Systems
We know that a fire can be devastating, and that’s why efficient fire safety systems are so critical. Fire poses a very real threat, not just to businesses, but also to people’s lives. It goes without saying that fire has always been a danger. The good news is, there is now a range of effective fire protection systems to help guard against it.
Here at Meritas Fire & Security Protection, we understand the physical, emotional and financial damage that can be caused by fire. Our range of fire protection and security services are tailored to meet the specific needs of you and your business. Our aim is to protect, and it’s a job we take extremely seriously.
The Services We Provide
Passive Fire Protection
An important element of Passive Fire Protection (PFP) is ‘Fire Compartmentation’. These fire safety systems involve dividing premises into ‘fire compartments’ to help reduce the spread of smoke and flames.
PFP can be achieved using fire doors, fire-resisting materials on floors and walls, and roof void cavity barriers, ducts, cables, and pipe work are also sealed to offer improved fire protection systems.
All work is carried out to current building regulations and British Standards. For example, BS8458 is the standard of compliance for water mist fire suppression systems in domestic and residential premises.
Fire Dampers use the same principle as louvre doors, where the louvres can either be open or shut. They are installed in ventilation ductwork and must be tested and cleaned every year.
When open, the dampers allow air to flow normally throughout a building, but when heat is detected, they close automatically. This helps to slow down the spread of fire and toxic fumes, giving people more time to evacuate.
The service we provide includes a detailed survey, any repairs and modifications needed, as well as cleaning and testing. Testing must be remembered as it is essential to ensure your fire safety systems are working efficiently.
Meritas Fire services also include Fire Compartmentation Compliance Surveys and Fire Damper Installation Compliance Surveys.
