On-site support of existing PFP, product identification and performance assessment relative to project requirements.

It is not unusual for projects undergoing upgrade, retrofitting or material change of use to come across applied fire protection to steelwork or sometimes concrete.  Where dedicated records do not exist, ascertaining the material itself and the fire rating it provides can be challenging.  This can potentially be an issue where alignment with modern fire resistance legislation is required.

PFP Specialists have experience in undertaking passive fire protection surveys and inspections that may include: –

  • Cementitious or intumescent coatings
  • Site visits
  • Assessment of as-constructed fire resistance requirements
  • Visual inspection
  • Chemical analysis of samples
  • Condition reports
  • Recommendations for refurbishment
  • Assistance where required in relation to Approving Authority acceptance

PFP Specialists’ Fire Resistance Inspections Deliver Results

In one case PFP Specialists were able to save the client a £multi-million bill for removal of an unidentified PFP material and replacement with a known product. Our comprehensive service demonstrated the fire resisting capability of the installed material and met the requirements of Building Control and other authorities.
