Checkmate’s ‘Fire Compliance’ Division helps organisations to achieve passive fire protection compliance. The services offered range from formulating specifications at the design stage to inspections at completion. In existing buildings we can assist with a menu of services that include the creation of fire strategy drawings, inspection of fire walls and fire doors and the air leakage testing of rooms or areas where airtightness of the structure is a critical requirement for life safety, property protection or business continuity.

Fire door compliance is a major issue and is a great concern to a number of organisations and individuals. To help clarify some of the issues regarding specifications and frequency of inspection, Checkmate Fire have created the Fire Door CHECKmaterix™ which enables various stakeholders to categorise doors in terms of usage and level of critical importance to the safety of the building.

Fire Compliance Surveys & Reports
To meet the legal requirements of the RRO, building owners and occupiers must ensure that the fire compartmentation in their buildings is robust and being adequately managed and maintained. To satisfy this need Checkmate offers a range of Compliance Survey and Reports tailored to the client’s unique circumstance and priorities. Surveys are increasingly using latest real-time technology to enhance levels of accuracy and meet or exceed customer expectations.More Info & Completed Projects
Fire Door Inspections
To fulfil the requirements of the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005, Checkmate have created a new product called FiredoorCheck™; a unique system to evaluate the condition of a fire door set.
This unique system creates a door schedule, as required by RRO, and records the history of each door to provide information for analysis, both in terms of fire compliance and ongoing remedial cost.

Air Leakage Testing
Checkmate’s air sealing expertise has been gained from the successful sealing of numerous Comms Rooms and other areas of strategic importance over many years, both working for clients direct and for Active Fire Protection companies, most notably FDSA Fire Protection, G&D Fire Protection and Vigilaris.
Since 2002, this expertise has been used to seal envelope buildings to help meet the air leakage and energy conservation requirements of Building Regulations L2. In 2005, Checkmate entered into a partnership agreement with Wintech Engineering, one of the UK’s leading UKAS Accredited air leakage consultants, to provide a complete air sealing and testing package to clients.
Steve Bramhill, Wintech Director of On-site Services states:
