Fire Damper Inspection and Repair Service
Fire dampers form a vital part of any effective fire prevention system. Not only does a fire damper restrict the flow of air to a fire, it also blocks the progress of smoke and flames towards other parts of the building. We regularly undertake full inspections of healthcare and other premises, checking fire dampers and other preventative measures for signs of corrosion, actuator failure, or other signs of wear and tear. Where we find that a fire damper installation is defective or insufficient to meet the current standards of The Joint Commission or NFPA standards, we will suggest a suitable solution. Our aim is to ensure that every client ends up with a safe building in good repair, which will provide a safe working environment for their workers, service users and visitors. Fire Dampers need to be inspected every 6 years or 1 year after installation.
When Was The Last Time You Had Your Fire Dampers Checked?
According to NFPA (188.8.131.52 & 184.108.40.206) Hospitals, for example, are required to have had their fire dampers checked at least once every six years. For commercial and medical offices, a suitable inspection should be undertaken every four years. Ensuring your fire dampers are in good condition isn’t just sound working practice, in many buildings it’s a legal requirement. If you need to make sure that your fire dampers are in an acceptable condition, our fully experienced and knowledgeable team are the perfect solution.
In-Depth Knowledge of a Wide Range of Fire Damper Products
Our experience ensures that we are familiar with a broad spectrum of installations. What this means for your organization is that we are able to effectively check any fire damper you might have, even if it’s not one of the more common varieties. When we produce our reports on the condition of your fire dampers, you’ll find them straight-forward to understand and backed by high quality photographs, so it’s easy to see any problems we’ve identified.

Our responsive scheduling and meticulous attention to client needs means that we are able to work unobtrusively and appropriately in care facilities, schools, nurseries and other buildings which are occupied by vulnerable groups.
Meticulous Fire Damper Inspection and Prompt Repair
According to NFPA (7.7.3 & 19.6.3) guidance make it clear that if deterioration of fire dampers or other fire prevention safeguards are detected, remediation works should begin as soon as practicable. Once inspection has been completed, we can usually get to work on fixing any issues straight away, ensuring your organization complies fully with existing legislation.

Air Duct Cleaning
Dirty ducts not only impede performance, they can also result in the spread of bacteria, viruses, allergens and other undesirable particulate matter. Using cutting-edge machinery, our skilled, experienced team will perform a full, thorough clean of ducts as well as reheat coils, diffusers and grills. We can work flexibly around your schedules, minimizing interference with your working routine or disruption to your patients and clients.
Clean Air Ducts Are Vital to Effective Infection Control
When people think of infection control, it’s likely that their HVAC system is the last thing on their minds. Unfortunately, without thorough, regular cleaning, air ducts and other parts of the system can become clogged with dust, dirt and grime. If such hazards are left to accumulate, they’re circulated through rooms that are connected to the air conditioning system, spreading infection while significantly reducing air quality. To prevent problems like these, a growing number of building managers are turning to us to resolve the problem.
Reduce Your Fuel Bills and Increase the Lifespan of Your System
The build-up of dirt and detritus in an air duct doesn’t just affect the quality of the air being pumped out; it can also play havoc with your energy budget and may even shorten the life of your HVAC installation. Once the system begins to clog up, the motors have to work harder in order to keep air circulating correctly. Not only does this mean that more fuel is required, the additional work puts extra strain on other components, increasing the risk of wear and tear or even a complete failure.

We are experienced providers of a wide range of fire prevention, building maintenance inspection and repair services.

We know what’s needed for fire doors to meet NFPA 80 and NFPA 101 requirements and will ensure that every door we work on meets these criteria. It is required to inspect your fire doors annually.
Fire Doors Are a Vital Part of Any Prevention System
One of the more visible barriers to the spread of fire, it’s little surprise that annual inspection of fire doors is an NFPA 80 (220.127.116.11 & 18.104.22.168) requirement for all healthcare facilities. Regular inspection is also a prerequisite for commercial and office buildings, in order to minimize the risk of deterioration remaining undetected. As experienced providers of fire door inspection and repair services, we have the capability to undertake a thorough inspection of each aspect of your fire prevention system as well as handle any necessary repairs.
We Don’t Just Check Fire Doors!
In order for a fire door to be judged as safe and fully functional, it’s not enough that the door itself is in an acceptable condition. We check the door surround, fixings, locks, hinges, bolts and closures to ensure that every single component of the system is fit for purpose. If we find that any aspect of your fire door is not as it should be, we can usually undertake appropriate repairs rapidly, bringing your door back into a safe state.

Ceiling tile replacement
Missing tiles not only look unsightly, they can also mean that your ceiling is no longer completely fire resistant. It may also be the case that piecemeal repairs or access to above-ceiling installations has resulted in the degradation of fire barriers or damage to junction boxes or sprinklers. Our expert team will effect full repairs and replacement if needed, restoring your ceiling to a safe condition that’s compliant with all relevant legislation.
A Timely Ceiling Call Can Save a Lot of Trouble
Ceilings and the space above them (often where a considerable amount of wiring, ducts and pipework is located) are areas which all too frequently are neglected when it comes to ensuring compliance with relevant fire prevention guidance. Unfortunately, ceiling access and work in the area above the ceiling is often carried out by tradespeople who aren’t aware of the right procedures to follow to keep your premises fire proof. Even a small area of inadequate fire barrier or flammable material can be enough to allow fire to spread. If you want your ceiling to be as fire resistant as the rest of your building, it’s time to give us a call.

Everyone on our team is trained and experienced in undertaking detailed ceiling call work, meticulously examining every part of your ceiling and the space above it in order to identify any weaknesses in your fire stops or other preventative measures.

Fire Stopping inspection and repair
Over the years, repair jobs or wear and tear can mean that your fire rated walls contain gaps or areas which no longer comply with NFPA 101 and IBC regulations. We can do the necessary work to get your walls up to standard, ensuring your fire stopping capabilities are at a safe level throughout your premises.
Effective Fire Stopping Inspection and Repair
One of the major challenges of fire stopping is to ensure that every part of the fire/smoke barrier, ceiling or floor under consideration has been made safe using appropriate materials and the right techniques to keep them to code. Even if a small area has been sealed using non-compliant material, the potential exists for a fire to break through and spread to other parts of the building.
