Why Fire Door Compartmentation & Fire Stopping?

We specialise in fire compartmentation and fire-stopping products. Fire compartmentation is essentially subdividing buildings into manageable areas of risk. This is because, if a fire was to break out, there would be adequate means for escaping across all these areas. For example, if a fire arose in the kitchen space and you were working in an office area with a connective corridor, there would be an escape route unique to the area you’re in therefore avoiding the fire area. If you consider a building used for commercial or industrial purposes, there would be lots of people in and out of the building all the time, which only adds to the importance of having several escape routes.

We are specifically trained to carry our fire compartmentation services so if you’re unsure whether your building is satisfactory enough in this respect then please get in touch. We’ve worked with many businesses already this year in Crewe doing just this. It’s so important to get it right, so call in the professionals.
