Fire Protection Services
At GBS we specialise in Passive Fire Protection within the commercial and residential construction industry. Our accredited Fire Protection Division offers a range of comprehensive solutions for site wide Passive Fire Protection throughout the UK.
Passive Fire Protection is an essential part of any development, be it commercial or residential, helping to mitigate risk and save lives.
We are FIRAS accredited, which is a 3rd Party Certification Scheme that verifies the competence of the Installing Contractor via Audit and Site Inspection. Being a member of this scheme is the mark of endorsement of competency in the installation of products and systems, vital for achieving the level of protection required. Upon completion of works we are able to issue a FIRAS Certificate of Conformity which is often critical for Building Handover.
As part of our on-going Quality Assurance process, we keep track of all completed installations using the Bolster Systems app, which maps the location of all walls and floors, schedules each fire-stopped area, records the date of installation and what materials were used. This provides a permanent record of fire-stopped locations for future reference.
