Frequently asked questions


Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, it is a requirement that your fire dampers are “maintained in an efficient working order and in good repair” for which reason these have to be inspected to demonstrate this.

How often should a carry out a property check?

It is recommended to carry out a thorough inspection every time the property becomes vacant.

We have sprinklers; do I still need compartmentation?

Yes you do still need compartments within a property if over a specific size even if you have sprinklers because it will still reduce the risk of fire and smoke spread through the property and protect escape routes

Why should I check my void properties for fire safety?

If it is your responsibility to ensure the property is compliant before the property is re-occupied the best time to do this is when it is empty.
