THE TYPE OF SERVICES WE OFFER...

The services we offer all fall under what we call compartmentation. Compartmentation is a critical aspect of your fire plan, but it is becoming increasingly complicated. Good compartmentation designed and installed by professional passive fire protection specialists, will keep the evacuation routes safe and limit the impact of a fire on your premises.

By partnering with Ventro for surveys and installation, you can be sure we will work with you to help you comply with BS 9999 (Code of practice for fire safety in the design, construction, and use of buildings) ensuring critical life safety and business continuity.

People are more aware of active protection systems, such as alarms, water sprinklers, and fire extinguishers. They are visible and it is easy to understand how they work to control a fire. This often leads to the assumption that active systems are the most effective means to increase fire safety in a building. However, in many cases, active systems assume that passive systems are already part of the building, and are designed to work in combination with them. Passive fire protection saves lives but also protects your building from the spread of fire.

The following will explain to you how our services naturally fall into this category.

Fire Stopping

Fire stopping is something Ventro excel at. Holding the principles of the company, fire safety is all about the means at to which you can stop fires from spreading, and to keep them under control. Fire Stopping could include both passive and active fire prevention systems.

In a nutshell, fire stopping is a way to compartmentalise within a building that needs to be protected against the passage of fire or smoke.

Fire Doors

At Ventro we see Fire Doors as much more than just a door. They are an engineered life-saving device, a key component of your passive fire protection. As such it is critical that they are maintained and regularly audited.  Ventro's flagship Fire Door Healthcheck, coupled with our BM Trada accredited Installation process is the only way you can be sure your doors comply.

Fire Dampers

Why skip on safety? 

Fire Dampers are used as a passive fire protection product that can help, in the unfortunate event of a fire, to stop the fire from spreading. The way they work is through the ductwork of fire resistance rated walls, ceilings, and floors.

The fire damper is a fire resistant mechanism that is placed within the ventilation duct or opening that automatically close if a fire or extreme increase in temperature is detected. This will give both you more time to escape the building and the fire rescue teams more time to put the fire out safely.

All of our Fire Dampers are fire safety compliant, and our team will make sure that the damper is properly installed, checked, and maintained. However, it is your responsibility to request this service, so why not contact us today so we can discuss how we can help you.

Fire Sprinklers

Fires can spread out of control in a matter of minutes, to the point of which you would have no control. Through having fire sprinklers installed in your property, you are giving yourself or your residents that extra time to escape, whilst giving the fire rescue teams that extra time to respond. They are a piece of fire protection which in our minds, is a no brainer as to its effectiveness. 

If you live in a high-rise tower block, regulations in England made it a legal requirement for all buildings constructed since 2007 and which are taller than 30m, are required to have sprinkler systems fitted in the property. However, if you are a landlord or a resident and feel as if your residence needs a fire sprinkler system fitted, then that is down to you. We would suggest that you do get sprinklers fitted, if not for peace of mind, you may be able to reduce insurance premiums and other costs through having the fire protection system.

Fire Rated Cladding

Fire protection on the outside of a building is as important as the inside of a building. It is important that buildings are constructed using a fire rated cladding system that is made up of non-combustible materials, of which has been fitted correctly to the building so that no voids are created. This cladding should have fire breaks within the cladding at each floor level and fire rated partition walls to reflect the internal fire compartmentation. 

Without these passive fire protection elements having been installed correctly, the cladding may operate as a conductor in the case of a fire which will allow the fire to spread out of control and up the facade of the building. 

For those with high-rise properties, it is highly important to make sure cladding is fire rated and that there are sufficient working passive and active fire prevention systems in place in case of the event of a fire. These systems are a highly effective way to control and slow down the spread of a fire which in turn reduces the cost of fire damage, increases residents time to escape, and gives fire rescue teams more time to get to the fire.
