Fire Surveys and Compartmentation
Compartmentation forms a key part of fire safety arrangements in all buildings and is an important facet of fire risk assessments. Properly managed and installed compartmentation is not only a legal requirement, it prevents the spread of fire and smoke by sub-dividing buildings and, importantly, gives time for occupants to evacuate safely.
Fire compartmentation and fire stopping is easily ignored and missed, as high-risk areas are often hidden behind suspended or false ceilings, ducts and risers, allowing the risk for fire spreading to go unknown and unchecked for months, years - or until it is too late.
