Keeping Schools protected.
Whether you’re a small primary school or run a range of large comprehensive schools, built-in fire protection is a fundamental, though often a neglected part of a building’s fire protection, it is nevertheless vital in maintaining compartmentation and preventing the spread of fire and smoke.
Extensive 3rd Party Accredited Expertise
Our passive fire protection services have been and continue to be used in schools, colleges, universities and student accommodation across the UK, often working with a major construction or FM company.
ATOL Fire provides a comprehensive range of compartmentation works to protect staff, pupils and buildings in the event of a fire. Moreover, all of our work is backed up by intense audits to ensure the quality and standard of work.
The aim of Compartmentation is to limit the rapid spread of fire. By dividing building premises into “fire compartments”, fire is contained by forming a barrier against smoke, heat and toxic gases. Fire Compartmentation is designed to contain the fire in the area of origin, providing protection for the building and for its occupants. Fire Compartmentation is the most effective mean of limiting fire damage before the fire brigade arrives. The benefits of compartmentation are: limiting fire damage, allowing further fire prevention systems to be installed, increased fire protection for a limited period of time.
You have the assurance, with ATOL, that all work will be carried out to the appropriate methods and standards. We will ensure that the building has an adequate compartmentation system, by completing a survey prior to performing any type of work. We will then perform any required additional works such as cavity barriers fitting, repair or supply and installation of fire-rated door sets, as well as fire-rated ceilings and walls so that the compartmentation system meets the legislative standards.
Our unrivalled knowledge means that we have the privilege of working with local and national organisations across the UK as we take a collaborative approach in everything we do to provide fully 3rd party accredited passive fire protection solutions on price and on time.
