Invasive Surveys, Design, and Installation of A1 Fire Rated Cladding Systems ensure that fire cannot spread to the external elevations of the building.

Invasive Surveys, Design, and Installation of A1 Fire Rated Cladding Systems ensure that fire cannot spread to the external elevations of the building.
Fire rated (FR) cladding prevents the spread of fire if it reaches the exterior of the building and due to the cavity created between the building substrate and the cladding insulation and thermal performance is optimized. FR cladding can be widely available in a range of varying textures and colours to offer an aesthetic in line with the majority of consumers desired specifications. Most external claddings are labelled with a minimum classification of ‘surface spread of flame’ which is intended to slow the rate of fire spreading, however only FR cladding provides the higher classification labelling it as limited or non-combustible. Regulation 7(2) of the Approved Document B, states “building work shall be carried out so that materials which become part of an external wall, or specified attachment, of a relevant building are of European Classification A2-s1, d0 or A1 classified in accordance with BS EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009”.

Approved Document B, Regulation 7(4) states that only FR cladding is permitted for use on relevant buildings whereby a “relevant building” means a building with a storey (not including roof-top plant areas or any storey consisting exclusively of plant rooms) at least 18 meters above ground level and which:
• contains one or more dwellings
• contains an institution
• contains a room for residential purposes (excluding any room in a hostel, hotel or boarding house)

Our Approach

Ventro’s unique approach adopts a 3-step cycle to establish that our clients are proactively tackling fire-safety by ensuring buildings are not only brought up to compliance but kept that way. The 3-Step Approach includes our detailed 5-yearly Healthchecks, Remedial and Installation Planned Programmes of Works, and ongoing Regulatory Routine Maintenance Contracts.

Healthcheck

The Healthcheck is an extended survey of the buildings to diagnose the issues within a building. We recommend that a Healthcheck is carried out at the beginning of engagement with ourselves and subsequently re-visited every 5-years as an extended review of the building in conjunction with our maintenance contract; to ensure our clients are keeping ahead of the curve with the most up-to-date solutions in an ever-changing regulatory environment.

Installation

Ventro provides an end-to-end project management service for all fire safety and regeneration projects, including the project, technical, site, and resident liaison aspects, ensuring that any remedial works required are carried out seamlessly and in a hassle-free manner for the client. Inclusive of specification, design, waste removal, supply and installation to provide the full turn-key solution to your project.

Maintenance

Following diagnosis and remediation, it is key that ongoing maintenance of all fire safety systems is proactively and routinely kept up-to-date to guarantee compliance requirements are met and ensure the safety of building users and longevity of installations. These are complemented every 5 years by an extended Healthcheck as described above to ensure total peace of mind.
