Fire-rated Partitions and Ceiling Systems Inspection

 

Fire-rated partitions and ceiling systems are the structural components that will form the separating element between rooms and form the compartmentation to limit the spread of smoke and flame between compartments.

Why are fire-rated partitions and ceiling systems important?

 

Fire-rated partitions and ceiling systems are integral in the suppression of smoke and flame spread throughout a building, maintaining effective compartmentation.

What is covered in our fire-rated partitions and ceiling systems inspections?

 

During a fire-rated partitions and ceiling systems inspection our technicians inspect the systems including:

The fire rating of the supporting/associated construction including the integrity and insulation rating

Height, thickness/depth

The method and type of fixings

Sealing of perimeter gaps

Low melting point components

Whether the partition is secured to a suspended ceiling or raised access floor
