Schools, hotels, prisons, hospitals, and many other business premises have been protected by Fire Immunity.

The Oxford Fire Service Building

 

Oxford Compartmentation Surveys

Home to Oxford University, the oldest in the English-speaking world, and containing a population of around 151,584 plus many visiting tourists, fire safety is essential in protecting the many residents.  Fire Immunity focuses on preventing fire spread in buildings throughout the city due to historic buildings and sizeable population numbers. Amendments and implementations are in accordance with approved document b, generally regarded as the principal passive fire protection standard.

Fire Immunity can customize surveys and reports to meet the unique needs of the region’s historical buildings, including Oxford University and scientific buildings such as Radcliffe Observatory. Additionally, we offer occupied building inspections to help our clients make informed decisions about passive fire safety, as well as extensive fire experience across several industries. For fire safety provisions to be maintained, regular planned preventative maintenance is required in accordance with Article 17 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

The purpose of a fire compartmentation system is to prevent fire from spreading throughout the building before the fire brigade arrives. Our teams inspect all compartment lines within your building as part of the visual inspection we conduct. A compartmentation line can be affected by many different defects, and identifying them requires expertise. Located in Bristol, only 60 miles away, our expert team know that a fire test alone will not be sufficient to ensure the safety of numerous buildings; protective barriers, compounding, and pipe cladding are likely to be necessary.

Penetration Sealing and Fire Barriers in Oxford

There are a number of reasons why passive fire protection, such as fire doors and cavity barriers, has become increasingly important to Oxford businesses in recent years.  It is important for both old and new buildings to protect themselves from fire when there are around 600 fire incidents in Oxford in December 2022.  Every Oxford suburb, including Osney and Barton, must meet British fire safety standards, and fixings must increase fire safety.

It is not uncommon for high-rise office buildings in city centres to install penetration sealing in the compartment walls of their buildings to prevent fires from spreading between floors and rooms within the building. As many incidents are recorded in Oxford every month, it is likely that risk assessments have been revisited. Our products and fire protection services will keep your employees and residents safe throughout the year. The SMAS specifications guarantee health and safety compliance in the city centre, the suburbs and the green belt of Oxford.

The customer relationship is the priority at Fire Immunity through a quality-driven approach and a philosophy of doing things right the first time.  Whenever you work with a team that is bright, talented, and passionate about fire safety, you can be assured of the highest quality service.  Talk to us about your passive fire concerns and we will be sure to assist in making your buildings safer.

Oxfordshire Structural Steel Protections

With a history dating back to the Saxon Period,  Oxford in the South-West is recognised for education, publishing and brewing. Due to the many styles of historical architecture, local fires can occur within the cladding of buildings, which requires fire precautions.

Fire Immunity can apply intumescent coatings to any building, whether it is a shopping centre such as Westgate Centre, or one of the car production sites including Mini Cars, to provide insulation and fire protection. This addition can increase the fire resistance of a building, including those with vulnerable occupants or important documents, by up to 120 minutes.

Fire Immunity can also make any amendments to your building to reduce the fire risk, including escape routes and pipe wraps on pre-existing structures, as the region is home to airports and railway stations. There are several fires that break out at transport links every year, and alarm systems aren’t always effective at saving lives. Installed correctly, fire barriers prevent fire from spreading within a building by closing concealed spaces.

Acoustic Sealing in Oxford

Due to the importance of learning at the University of Oxford and the numerous schools, acoustic sealants are used on the interior or exterior walls of buildings hosting events (or near event venues) as they prevent sound from travelling between spaces. The gaps and joints in walls and building structures can be filled in to accomplish this by filling in the gaps and joints within them. The use of acoustic sealants can also provide peace of mind in case of a fire. The occupants will have an easier time evacuating the area if a fire breaks out due to the less rapid spread of smoke and flames. It is important to note that by using acoustic seals, a fire can be prevented from spreading for up to four hours, allowing the fire department sufficient time to prevent extensive damage from happening.

Compared to normal caulking, audio-sealing products last longer and are tougher. It is generally more expensive for these products than for regular caulking products, but they are still fairly affordable. Due to its sound-to-heat conversion properties, the acoustic sealant reduces your energy bills by keeping heat within your building.
