Passive fire protection maintenance

It’s simple – check your PFP systems regularly!

Your passive fire protection systems are specified systems and require regular inspection, maintenance and reporting in order to maintain its prescribed function as fire safety protection. Furthermore, all passive fire protection systems, to an extent, are prone to weakness, damage and faults. So to save you future stress, and potential legal implications, why not get it done right?

Passive fire protection systems need regular attention, specialist inspection (IQP) in order to continue to perform and operate to full effect.

The independent qualified person (IQP) follows the requirements set out in your building’s compliance schedule. Each compliance schedule is different, depending on the specified systems in the particular building.

A compliance schedule will usually require the more complex inspection and maintenance procedures to be carried out by an IQP and the certification with a Form 12A can only be supplied by an IQP. As a building owner, you may be responsible for undertaking some less complex and more frequent inspection tasks. These tasks will also be detailed in the compliance schedule.

Common issues with fire separations, that if not checked regularly inspected, can include:

  • doors unsecured and left in an open position
  • self-closing doors do not latch or close the door
  • smoke seal damage or destruction
  • light timber framed walls are damaged
  • fire separations above false ceilings or below false floors are inadequate
  • sealed penetrations become null for your compliance schedule

Proper maintenance and regular systematic inspections of your passive fire separation systems can avoid such problems. While, diligently managed construction, implementation and retrofitting of your fire safety systems will prevent further issues and ultimately save lives were a fire to occur.
