We are Safecore Firestop

WE SPECIALISE.

At Safecore Firestop we specialise in fire stopping floor and wall penetrations and linear joints in new build and refurbishment developments. We operate over the South East including London.

Compartmentation means that buildings are divided up into manageable areas of risk to prevent the spread of smoke and fire.

WE PROTECT.

Fire stopping is used for sealing apertures and imperfections of fit between fire resisting walls, floors and ceilings to restrict the passage of fire and smoke.

Penetration sealing systems play an essential role in fire safety designs of buildings and the quality of firestopping penetration seals is vital to effective performance.

WE TAKE PRIDE.

We are a third-party accredited installer under IFC certification. This ensures peace of mind that installation meets the required standards helping main contractors comply with their obligations.

We pride ourselves on competitively priced solutions using certified quality products and delivering on time to meet the client’s schedule.

What We Do

All of our firestops are IFC labelled to include our company name, installer, referenced, dated and photo logged.

Our operatives are trained in installation, required to do an ASFP course as well as Health and Safety courses.

The systems we use are installed according to the manufacturer’s specification. Where there is any doubt about the compliance of a solution then guidance will always be sought from the manufacturer.

It is important from the outset to consider such details as service supports and distances between services to other services and services to substrate in an opening as well as the opening itself.

PENETRATIONS.

Using multi-layered, low resin bonded rock mineral fibreboard which offers up to 4 hours fire resistance and provides a thermal, fire, smoke acoustic seal.

These are employed in combination with fire resisting sealants to form the fire-resistant construction. The Firetherm batts we use have a unique Optifire identifiable coating providing assurance of the products installed.

LOADBEARING SEALS.

Gypsum based compounds used to reinstate the fire resistance performance of floor constructions where the compartment line has been breached by service penetrations.

In addition to providing loadbearing capacity in areas such as riser cupboards, the system also affords thermal, acoustic and air sealing performance.

PIPE CLOSURES – COLLARS, SLEEVES, WRAPS & HIGH PRESSURE EXERTING SEALANTS.

Designed to stop the spread of fire and smoke through plastic pipes which pass through a fire resistant elements such as floors or walls.

These contain an intumescent compound which expands on exposure to fire, exerting pressure and closing heat softened plastic pipe providing up to 4 hours fire protection.

LINEAR EXPANSION & MOVEMENT JOINTS.

Linear gap seals are a system used stop the spread of fire as well as permitting the structure to expand and contract. Common examples are between blockwork and steel where deflection and movement may occur and in movement joints at blockwork walls and floors.

From using fire rated acrylics for smaller joints to firestopping static and movement joints for slab edge, we have a range of solutions to manage different situations.

WHY USE US

We are a third party accredited contractor.

We are accredited by IFC certification Ltd, a UKAS accredited and reputable provider of third party certification. Certificated installers undergo independent audit of their office and site work is assessed to show competency of their installers and supervisors.

This allows us to issue certificates of conformity to clients which forms part of the Operations and maintenance documentation together with an inventory of all the firestops installed in a building and their location.

Peace of mind

For those responsible for the specification of materials and/or for appointing the installation contractor, it is also their responsibility to ensure they can prove competency for the fire protection materials used, or the works to be carried out. It isn’t just a duty of care – it’s a legal obligation under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Approved Document B states – “Third party accreditation of systems, materials, products or structures provide a means of ensuring that installations have been conducted by knowledgeable contractors to appropriate standards, thereby increasing reliability of the anticipated performance in a fire”.

The correct installation of firestopping products is fundamental to their performance in stopping the spread of smoke and fire. The use of a third-party accredited installer provides evidence that correct systems are used and are competently installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s specification. This demonstrates compliance to specifiers, Insurers, building owners and occupiers.
