What is Fire Protection Engineering?
Fire protection engineering is simply assessing the risk of potential fire hazards in your premises, taking into account the building design, how you and your staff use it and the fire dynamics that result. You and your business can then reduce the risk to acceptable levels, even in complex or multi-use premises.
How can fire safety engineering reduce my business’ fire risk?
By taking a holistic approach to fire safety, and looking beyond prevention and prescriptive regulatory requirements, Zeta Services Fire Risk Management division can help you maximise the potential of any building you already have, whether it be a new-build factory or listed premises. Fire safety engineering looks at the total building and safety facilities, including:
- Number and quality of escape routes
- Fire compartmentation
- Level of management
- Building use
- Fire Suppression Systems
- Smoke Control
- Fire Detection and Alarm Systems
Reducing Risk in Your New Premises
You want your new premises to have the wow factor, but they must also be designed with fire safety performance in mind. If particular usage issues or complex building structures are designed using fire safety engineering, your building will not only meet Building Regulations and fire safety regulations more easily, but also satisfy any local authority requirements imposed, thus saving you time and money.
Reducing Risk in Your Existing Premises
Zeta Services Fire Risk Management division specialises in fire protection engineering and can undertake a Hot Smoke Test for your premises; a non-destructive, odourless process that is regarded by insurance companies as the ultimate test of building design and fire response.
This can potentially save money too as fire engineering ensures that the building’s design and structure is taken fully into account, including its own inherent fire safety features.
