Fire Compartmentation Surveys are one of the most effective ways of protecting lives and property from the hazard of fire. Whilst being a crucial tool for any facilities management team in order to comply with their legally required inspections, they also maximise the safety of the occupants.
Fire Compartmentation should play a vital role in your overall fire strategy and is fundamental to limiting the spread of a fire in your property, which could potentially save lives.
While a fire risk assessment covers some aspects of the fire compartmentation, a fire compartmentation survey explores everything in more detail. A fire compartmentation survey is a visual inspection of all areas within a property to assess the overall condition of the existing fire compartments and how well a property can help prevent the rapid spread of smoke and fire for the required period of time. The goal is to determine how well escape routes are protected and identify any potential risks and breaches within the property.
