Compartmentation Compliance Surveys

To meet the legal requirements of the Fire Safety Order, building owners and occupiers must ensure that the fire compartmentation in their buildings is robust and being adequately managed and maintained.

To satisfy this need Fire Risk Management Associates (FRMA) offers a range of compliance surveys and reports tailored to the client’s unique circumstance and priorities.

Our associates have extensive experience delivering such reports and will provide the client with a comprehensive report regarding the premise’s compartmentation compliance and passive fire protection measures; documenting their serviceability, reliability, state of repair and any remedial works that may be required to ensure the client’s legal obligations are met and that the regulatory agencies are satisfied.

Passive Fire Protection Installations

Our associates have over 30 years of experience within the construction industry and specialise in passive fire protection installation work. Furthermore, FRMA is registered with The Building Research Establishment (BRE) Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) and is listed as an approved installer of passive fire protection products in the LPCB Red Book. FRMA is also Constructionline gold verified, which guarantees that FRMA is verified beyond PAS 91 standards. FRMA is also a registered member of The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP). You can also find us listed as a registered ASFP C1 contractor here.

FRMA ensure that all work is underwritten by appropriate documentation that can be submitted to Building Control and utilised in fire risk assessments under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (or equivalent national legislation). Furthermore, under the LPCB LPS 1531 scheme, FRMA can provide certificates for passive fire protection installations, providing assurance that your PFP installations meet the required standards and offer the correct level of fire protection.

Fire Door Inspections

The actual performance of an installed fire door can vary significantly due to a wide variety of factors, including the door, frame, hardware, intumescent strips and smoke seals (where necessary). In analyses of the fire risk assessments FRMA conducted in 2020, 43% identified fire doors with vital components missing (like essential intumescent seals), severely reducing or even irradicating their fire stopping capabilities; highlighting the importance of regular fire door maintenance.

Inspections of existing fire doors are a job for a specialist in the field. At FRMA our associates are experts in fire door testing, installation and inspection. All of our fire door inspectors have been awarded the Fire Door Inspection Scheme diploma (DipFD). Furthermore, FRMA are accredited under the LPCB to inspect, repair and maintain fire and security doors, doorsets, shutters and active smoke/fire barriers.

Fire Testing

FRMA can also assist with the fire testing of building materials and structures where required.

Our testing services include:
•  Fire testing – such as reaction and resistance to fire testing of materials and structures (indicative and full-scale).
•  Regulatory testing – for demonstration of compliance with UK Building Regulations, and for European Classification and CE Marking.
•  Testing advice – FRMA can provide you with advice regarding testing services.
