Specialists in Fire Safety Remediation
Over recent years there has been an increased focus on fire protection compliance in commercial and residential properties, particularly within the social housing sector. However, rather than engaging with passive fire protection specialists, some managers and building owners engage with a generic contractor or facilities management company who will then subcontract the work out.
One of the more notable changes within the market is the sharp increase in fireproofing packages being let as specialist lots rather than as part of a larger service remit. This is due to the increase in demand for remedial works on new, occupied buildings, and is done to ensure that the specialist gets it right, first time. As a result of this demand, CLM have undergone a transformation program and have launched a specialist remedial division headed by our in-house Remedial Projects Lead.
Fully-Compliant Compartmentation and Fire Stopping
It is often during general upgrades, including mechanical and electrical installations, that fire compartment breaches or inadequate compartmentation is identified. Rectifying non-compliant installations requires specialist expertise, and CLM has years of experience in remediating substandard compartmentation and fire stopping.
As a company, we have direct contact with a multitude of manufacturers who will provide us with details and building materials for almost any compartmentation works we may come across. We will always take the extra mile to assure our clients that installations are 100% compliant, drawing on a wealth of collective experience as well as engaging directly with compliance specialists.
All identified and repaired breaches are photographed, recorded and clearly marked on BORIS indicating the method of fire stopping or sealing, as well as the exact material used. Our proactive approach to remediation projects leads to compliant installs, sequencing of work planning and collaboration between trades to create robust, auditable solutions and reduce future remediation costs.Expert Compartmentation
Fire Door Installation and Dry Lining
Fire doors are fundamental for residential and commercial premises. However, they are often critically overlooked, being used regularly outside of safety drills or evacuations. Residents and leaseholders must remain vigilant, swiftly reporting any concerns surrounding neglect or damage. It must also be noted that as of January 2023, communal fire doors should be inspected every 3 months and Front Entrance Doors (FEDs) checked annually.
CLM Fireproofing offer quality fire safety door installation and maintenance. We work in partnership with leading manufacturers and vendors. If a building requires an upgrade or full replacement, our team of experts will carry out work promptly and professionally. This assures all residents and building owners that their fire doors are reliable in the event of an emergency.
Building owners may not be aware of the safety risks posed by dry-lining. If not properly fireproofed, a dry-lining system could cause smoke to spread through a building. CLM Fireproofing provide dry lining installations and repairs, so clients can rest assured that all points of entry are adequately protected in the event of a fire.
