Maintenance

You have had passive fire safety installed in your property by Ventro or by another external contractor, so you need to make sure these items are maintained and are fit for purpose. The third stage of our approach is 'Maintenance'.

This step will involve our team working with you to create a suitable maintenance package that is based around how often checks are required by law, making sure your items work to the best of their ability and are fit for purpose.

Your maintenance plan will be a good item to fall back on in the event of a fire, to show what progress you have made towards your fire safety compliance.

Can you not just tell me what to check for?

Like we mentioned on the Healthcheck page, unless you know what you are looking for and can spot if something is going against fire safety compliance, then you are better off getting an expert in who can check everything for you. They will not only be expertise and know exactly what to look for, but they could do it in half the time. 

We use a 52 point checking system for our Fire Doors which is unique to Ventro. This is something that we can arrange with you and go through with you, but there is so much involved such as checking the intumescent sealants, the glass, the door leafs, frames, the closer and latches, the air transfer grilles, and more believe it or not. There is so much involved with checking a fire door and even more when it comes to other types of passive fire protection. 

When doing checks on your building, you need to know what you are doing. There are simple things that you can check such as signage in the building, making sure your escape routes and fire points are updated, that fire exits are not blocked, that your staff are appropriately trained in the event of a fire, making sure your doors open and close correctly and that they aren't damaged, that all of your emergency lighting works, making sure your electrical items are PAT tested and booking an electrician if not, putting in simple systems can really help when it comes to fire safety.

We advise that anything technical such as doors, dampers, and fire stopping should be left to the professionals because we know when something is compliant.

What happens after I have had passive fire safety installed in my property?

So you have hit the final step of our 3 Step Approach or you are here because you would like to get a quote for a maintenance package. Following on from any remedial work that has been carried out by Ventro or another contractor, we like to make sure the products that were installed are maintained. Just like anything, everything needs to be maintained and made sure it is fit for purpose and is working correctly as it should.

Your healthcheck has been carried out, followed by any installations. Following on from any remedial work that has been carried out by Ventro or another contractor, we like to make sure the products that were installed are maintained.

Just like anything, everything needs to be maintained and made sure it is fit for purpose and is working correctly as it should.

The best thing about using us for the full 3 Step Approach is that we have a record of what work has been done and what needs to be looked at in the future, as well as the type of budget you are working towards. Our team will have a list of what installations have been made. Everything will be thoroughly checked for quality, tested under conditions to make sure they are working correctly and replaced if needed.

Having a maintenance package will help you and us to keep costs down in the future. Just like a car, a car needs servicing and parts, if you leave it and don’t check it, or get complacent when you know it needs attention from a qualified mechanic, the car will eventually become unsafe, not road worthy, and other parts will eventually break down and stop working. Passive Fire Safety works in the exact same way, except your life and people around you could be at risk if it gets to this stage, not to mention you will be breaking the law.

So maintenance is highly important. We can help you stay within the law. Don’t cut corners, do things the right way, the Ventro way.

Do I really need maintenance as this is an extra cost for me?

Having maintenance will help you and us to keep costs down in the future. Just like a car, a car needs servicing and parts, if you leave it and don’t check it, or get complacent when you know it needs attention from a qualified mechanic, the car will eventually become unsafe, not road worthy, and other parts will eventually break down and stop working.

You may think that you can avoid it and just leave it for a few years, but you never know when a fire could occur. And if investigations into a fire show that the last time you maintained your dampers or fire stopping was back when they were fitted, this could be a cause of negligence and could land you in trouble, especially if they find that the piece of equipment that you had installed to prevent a fire from spreading, didn't perform in the way it should have.

So maintenance is highly important. We can help you stay within the law. Don’t cut corners, do things the right way.

What sort of prices do you charge?

We are fortunate to have worked with a range of clients, from large organisations, to medium and small businesses. Our pricing strategy is completely based around your budget and the size of the project. So this could be per door, or per sqm, per property etc.

We do take into consideration that budgets may be tight which is why we like to work around our customers to make sure they are getting the best out of their budget. 

Prices will completely depend on an array of factors. If you are an existing customer and have worked with us on the previous 2 steps, we will be able to put a plan together based on remedial works that have been done.

If you are a new customer, then we offer a FREE initial consultation where our passive fire consultants will come out and visit your property and work a plan around their findings. If you have floor plans of the building and any information on remedial work you have had done, this will be helpful for our consultants on the day to work out the maintenance plan. A quote will then be put together for your maintenance package based on this information.

For more information on prices, or to book your FREE consultation, or to get your maintenance package quotation, please fill out an enquiry form at the bottom of the page, or just pop us an email and one of our passive fire consultants will get back to you.
