South-West Penetration Sealing and Fire Barriers
In recent years, passive fire protection, including fire doors and cavity barriers, has become increasingly important to businesses in the southwest. With only 6 fire & rescue services in the area, fire protection products are of increased importance in both old and new buildings. In any of the southwest’s 7 counties, fire safety must meet British standards, and fixings must increase fire safety.
To prevent fire from spreading between floors and rooms within a building, many high-rise office buildings in city centres install penetration sealing in compartment walls. With a number of recent fires caused by heatwaves and dry grass in the summer of 2022 in the local authority, risk assessments will have been looked over again. You can ensure your employees and residents are safe all year round with our products and fire protection services. SMAS specifications ensure health and safety compliance no matter where you are located in Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset or Wiltshire.
At Fire Immunity, customer relations are our priority through a quality-driven approach and a ‘right first time’ philosophy. You can be assured of the highest quality service by working with a team that is bright, talented and passionate about fire safety in the built environment. Talk to us about your passive fire concerns and we will be sure to assist in making your buildings safer.
Acoustic Sealing in the
South of the UK
Since the Glastonbury Festival takes place in the district, and the South-west is known for its trip-hop culture, acoustic sealants are used on interior or exterior walls of buildings hosting events (or near event venues) as they prevent sound from travelling between spaces. In order to accomplish this, gaps and joint spaces within walls and building structures can be filled in. In the event of a fire, acoustic sealants can also provide peace of mind. As a result, flames and smoke will spread less quickly, making it easier for occupants to escape. Using acoustic sealing can prevent the spread of fire for up to four hours, allowing the fire department plenty of time to prevent extensive damage.

Compared to normal caulking, audio-sealing products are tougher and last longer. The price of these products is usually higher than that of regular caulking products, but they are generally still quite affordable. Its sound-to-heat conversion properties allow the acoustic sealant to keep heat within your building, which will ultimately lead to lower energy bills.
Compartmentation Surveys in the South-West
Geographically the largest of the nine regions of England the South-West contains four world heritage sites and has a population of around 5,289,000. Fire Immunity focuses on preventing fire spread in buildings throughout the region due to its large population. All amendments and implementations are in compliance with approved document b, which is generally accepted as the principal passive fire protection regulation.
As the region is home to large environmental constructions such as Eden Projects and numerous iconic buildings such as Aardman Animations, Fire Immunity can customize surveys and reports to meet the needs of each individual building. In addition to providing occupied building inspections to help our clients make informed decisions about passive fire safety, we also have extensive experience across various industries. According to Article 17 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, regular planned preventative maintenance is required to maintain fire safety provisions. A fire compartmentation system prevents the spread of fire throughout the building before the fire brigade arrives. As part of the visual inspection we conduct, our teams examine all compartment lines within your building. There are many types of defects that can affect a compartmentation line, and identifying them requires expertise.
Located in the South-West, which is rich in folklore, 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.
Bristol and Beyond Structural Steel Protection
A geographically large region of England, the South-West is known primarily for its maritime influence and dairy farming. In spite of the industry in the area, local fires still occur within the cladding of buildings, which requires fire precautions.
Fire Immunity can apply intumescent coatings to any building, whether it is a dock or one of the 2500 area schools, to provide insulation and fire protection. A building with vulnerable occupants can increase its fire resistance by up to 120 minutes with this addition.
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 lies along numerous main railway lines. Several fires break out every year on railway tracks, and alarm systems may not always be enough to save lives. Through the closing of concealed spaces, fire barriers limit the spread of fire within a building when installed correctly.
