Barrier Management Survey
Barrier management surveys are a crucial step in making sure your fire and smoke barriers are doing their job. For fire and smoke barriers to work effectively in the event of a fire, all through-penetrations must be properly stopped with a UL-approved barrier management product. With common renovation and remodeling in healthcare facilities, penetrations lurk in hard to see places and can easily become a large-scale compliance risk if not taken in stride.
Your documentation will reflect all identified penetrations that were in need of firestopping pursuant to the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code. An electronic report is provided to you detailing the type and quantity of each penetration on your rated walls.
Survey + Remediation models
We are aware of the budget constraints around fire barier and have created the following tiered maintenance models to help you get started.
Survey with Risk Focused Remediation
The Risk Focused Survey is a full survey of the entire facility, however REMEDI8® only completes remediation in the areas that have the highest risk of fire. These designated areas align with the areas an AHJ is most likely to check during your survey. Although no areas are excluded from review this model allows you to show documentation of improvement and a plan-in-action to full compliance. We provide a second proposal after the initial project to cover the areas that were not remediated because they did not fall into the high risk category. It’s your choice whether you want us to revisit that work at a later time to spread out cost or have our professionals finish the remediation right away.
Firestopping Survey with Remediation
This is our most popular fire barrier service as it streamlines your repair process. We can complete remediation within the same visit as your fire barrier survey when scheduled accordingly. Our REMEDI8® technicians will perform an inspection of all fire rated walls and smoke barriers to identify penetrations in need of firestopping pursuant to the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code and repair any penetrations that can be repaired in 30 minutes of less, without additional parts or materials.
