Compartmentation surveys

Keep a fire hazard contained


Effective compartmentation will stop or slow the spread of fire in your building and protect the designated escape routes. For your compartmentation strategy to work, you must have the correct fire stopping furnishings and equipment installed. Critically, they must be installed by a competent person.

It’s especially important that you undertake regular compartmentation surveys if you operate a ‘stay-put’ policy in your building. ‘Stay put’ only works if fire stopping meets the appropriate standards and has been installed correctly to prevent the spread of fire and smoke.

When we carry out a compartmentation survey at your premises, you get:

  • A detailed inspection of the compartments in your building, including the walls, ceilings, doors, floors, seals, and other fire stopping measures

  • A thorough, easy-to-understand report which analyses how well your compartments stop the spread of fire

  • Analysis of any vulnerabilities, which may compromise the safety of your residents / occupants 

  • Assessment of the condition of fire stopping measures

  • Detailed recommendations for improvements

Protect your people

Keep your escape routes untouched by fire and safeguard the people that occupy your flats or offices. 

Meet your insurance obligations

Don’t compromise your cover. With a compartmentation survey, you keep up with your obligations under your buildings insurance. 

Minimise building damage

Keep any fire contained effectively and avoid the devastating spread of fire.

When to get a compartmentation survey

Every 2-3 years

You should review

your compartmentation

measures every 2 to 3 years.  

Changes to the building

Any redesign, reshuffle, or total interior rehaul, will prompt another inspection of your compartmentation defences.
