“The University of Wolverhampton have had an assured partnership with Karntek since 2018 and found them to be highly competent, reliable, organised and professional in their work at the University. As a company Karntek, provide special attention to detail when undertaking the university fire door and compartmentation condition surveys providing reports and undertaking the auditing/certification of completed works and fire risk assessments as and when necessary.
The company support and advice that I receive on behalf of the University is excellent and their reporting procedures and information is clear and concise. Karntek have a very customer focused approach to their business with a “can-do” attitude, whilst being a versatile and flexible resource.
I would highly recommend this company based on my experience and the support received, whilst working with them closely over the 12 months.”

Frequently asked questions
Passive Fire Protection is essential in stopping the spread of smoke and fire through a building. It is needed to protect the escape routes and the building’s structure to prevent it from collapsing. If the passive fire protection is correct then it is unlikely any significant damage will arise from a fire.
A Fire Risk Assessment must be completed by a “Competent Person”. This means you must have the necessary knowledge, training, skills and experience. If your Fire Risk Assessment isn’t “Suitable and Sufficient” you could be prosecuted.
