Fire Compartmentation Surveys
What is a Fire Compartmentation Survey?
A fire compartmentation survey assesses the value and potential of a property's existing fire compartment walls, layout, and surroundings to help restrict the spread of fire and smoke in the event of an emergency. You may be recommended a fire compartmentation survey following a Fire Risk Assessment that identifies numerous breaches in fire compartment walls, ceilings and floors.
Our Fire Compartmentation Surveys
A fire compartmentation survey with us will include looking into roof spaces, floor voids, behind boxing and more. Essentially, any space into which a fire can spread will be identified and a fire compartmentation survey will provide resultant fire protection recommendations and help us create fireproofing solutions, or in more serious circumstances, obligatory instructions that must be adhered to by law to keep your property/business compliant with fire safety law.
Why Do I Need a Fire Compartmentation Survey?
According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, it is your responsibility to maintain the fire protection components within a building. You must ensure that they are in efficient working order and in good repair. To fulfil this requirement, a fire compartmentation survey can identify any issues related to walls, ceilings, voids, and layouts that don't meet legal fire safety requirements. The survey will also provide recommendations to help you implement fire protection measures.

Fire Compartmentation Survey FAQ's
The Fire Risk Assessment covers areas in Fire Compartmentation and Fire Doors but this covers only samples of some areas in the building, therefore any defects identified in these areas could be present throughout the building. Having a Fire Compartmentation or Fire Door Survey means we can confirm whether the rest of the building needs any remedial work by surveying all of the concerned areas.
Once we have completed our survey, you will receive an executive summary, which will provide you with an overview of our findings once the survey is conducted. You will also receive an in-depth survey report and itemised cost breakdown along with a formal quotation letter within 7 business days.
