Fire Services

All fire alarms essentially perform the same function.  If smoke or heat are detected, or if someone operates a break glass unit, the alarm is triggered and a building’s occupants are warned to evacuate.  If the system has been configured for remote signalling, the fire brigade will also be alerted.

A fire door will perform like any other door, however if a fire breaks out it is required to perform a specific function in preventing smoke and fire spread and allowing the safe evacuation of a building’s occupants.

Firestopping is the sealing of any openings to prevent the passage of fire and smoke from passing through multiple building compartments.  A fire is contained by subdividing a building into fire resisting compartments, either vertically or horizontally. Firestopping is therefore critical to ensuring the integrity of a building’s fire compartmentation.
