In recent years, we have adopted Fire Compartmentation as one of our key services. We are now certified by BM Trada to protect commercial buildings from fire hazards by installing fire doors in Ellesmere Port, Chester, Liverpool, and across the North West. BM Trada is an audit and certification organization that helps regulate the national and international standards of safety in buildings, including ISO 17021, ISO 17024, and ISO 17065.
Following the awful events at Grenfell Tower in June 2017, we decided to take fire safety more seriously than ever. We promptly got our BM TRADA certification to manage facilities more effectively. JST Construction’s fire risk management team works tirelessly to improve your commercial spaces’ fire compliance. That is what sets us apart from our contemporaries. To distinguish ourselves from others, we have designed our fire plans in a way to reduce the risks of fire hazards across all industrial and commercial units. And we welcome any enquiry.

How it Works
Fire compartmentation revolves around dividing a building into separate cells by utilising construction materials to prevent the passage of any fire from spreading to other cells.
As buildings become larger and more complex, our objectives have remained focused on constructing fire-protected units, no matter the scale of your project.
Although many buildings are built on this fundamental concept, JST Construction has improved the effectiveness of this design principle.
For commercial properties, fire compartmentation is an essential service. It increases the protection within the unit and makes escaping from the building incredibly safer. During office refurbishments, we pay special attention to fire separation to ensure your staff is far away from danger while at work.

Why Fire Door Compartmentation & Fire Stopping?
Fire door compartmentation and fire stopping should not be underestimated and are both extremely important elements of passive fire protection in order to prevent the spread of fire, compartmentation and stopping are imperative. Compartmentation helps us to subdivide buildings into the manageable area of risk and provides adequate means of escape enabling time for occupants or employees to safely evacuate the premises in the event of a fire breakout. Fire door compartmentation and stopping is particularly important within medium to larger size commercial and industrial properties where there are dozens of separate rooms to best protect. Here at JST Construction, we are able to implement these measures with all types of commercial properties at different locations across multiple industries.

A fire door is a specialised door assembly designed to resist the spread of fire and smoke. It is constructed using fire-resistant materials and includes components such as a fire-rated core, intumescent seals, and fire-resistant glazing (if applicable). Fire doors are constructed using fire-resistant materials and are engineered to meet specific fire rating requirements.
Fire doors work by creating a barrier that hinders the spread of fire and smoke from one area of a building to another. When exposed to fire, the materials in the door assembly resist the flames and heat, buying time for occupants to evacuate and limiting the damage caused by the fire. Moreover, this gives the emergency services / fire brigade sufficient time to come get to your property in time before potential fire escalation.
The primary purpose of fire doors is to protect lives and property by compartmentalising buildings into fire-resistant compartments. They help prevent the rapid spread of fire, allowing for safe evacuation and providing additional time for emergency response. When a fire breaks out, the door’s construction and components, such as fire-rated core material, intumescent seals, and fire-resistant glazing (if applicable), work together to withstand the heat, flames, and smoke for a specific period of time.
The fire rating of a door refers to the amount of time it can resist fire and smoke. Common fire ratings for doors include 30 minutes, 60 minutes, and 90 minutes. The rating indicates the door’s ability to withstand fire under controlled testing conditions. It’s difficult for our team at JST Construction to suggest the fire door rating which is most suitable without offering a site survey initially.
Fire doors should be inspected and maintained regularly to ensure their proper functioning. The frequency of inspections may vary depending on local regulations, but they are typically conducted annually or as recommended by fire safety professionals just like our team at JST Construction that provide fire inspection / servicing throughout in Ellesmere Port and within a 30-mile radius.
Fire doors should never be propped open or modified in any way that compromises their ability to function as intended. Propping open or obstructing fire doors can allow fire and smoke to spread freely, negating their purpose in containing and slowing down a fire. Propping open a fire doors goes against what they are made and installed for.
Fire doors should be inspected by qualified professionals in the event of damage. Minor repairs may be possible, but significant damage or compromised fire resistance typically requires the door to be replaced to ensure continued fire safety. No compromise on safety should be made. If JST Construction inspect your fire door and it’s safer to replace, rather than repair, we will let you know with the safety of your people and building at the forefront of our thinking.
Fire doors are typically installed in critical areas such as fire exits, stairwells, corridors, and other locations where fire compartmentalisation is necessary. They are equipped with specific hardware, such as self-closing devices, smoke seals, and fire-rated hinges, to ensure proper operation and maintain their fire-resistant integrity.
