Project: BM Trada Fire Door Installation
Industrial Contracting Services Ltd is pleased to report on the first project they have completed with their new BM Trada Fire Door Installation and Maintenance certification.
Our Contracts Manager Callum Chandler has attended the BM Trada training courses for
Fire Door Installation and Maintenance and Passive Fire Protection and we are pleased to confirm that at the time of writing this update Callum has passed the first certification audit he had in March 2020 and Industrial Contracting Services Ltd were duly issued with their accreditation as a BM Trada approved installer and maintainer of fire door sets. Our audit for the Passive Fire Protection certification will take place shortly.
BM Trada is part of Element, the market leader in Testing, Inspection and Certification services. BM TRADA exists to help make certain that the materials, products, and processes that they test, inspect and certify for their customers are always safe, quality, compliant and fit for purpose.
Industrial Contracting Services have recently completed the installation of Four anti-barricade fire-rated BM Trada certified door sets for the country’s largest healthcare provider.
The works were undertaken in a busy, challenging, live working environment, in which their staff and the hospitals patient activities took priority. A flexible but thorough program and careful planning were needed to ensure there was no disruption to the patients or staff at any time.
The project comprised of installing full-height temporary screens separating the staff and patients from each working zone, with access for staff at all times if required.
As well as displaying the notices required these screens were also painted with murals to help brighten them up.
Once each screen was installed safely around the intended work area. We disconnected the existing access control pad so that we could safely remove the existing door set, which was immediately removed from the site to make the best possible use of the working space we had.
We then installed the new door set supplied by a BM Trada approved manufacturer to BM Trada Fire Door installation and maintenance certified standards. All fire stopping elements around the door openings and decoration works were then completed. We then reconnected the access control pad and carried out the installation of our BM Tradad installers plug to the door which shows the work has been carried out by an approved installer. We then safely dismantled the screen, leaving the site in a tidy clean safe manner before we moved the screens to carry out the next part of the project.
Following upon completion of the project we issued the client's, estate Manager, with their copy of the Certification and necessary manufacture and installation reports that go with every BM Trada fire door set installation.
We are pleased to report that our first project was completed snag-free and on time.
