FIRAS Certification : What is it and why does it matter? What is FIRAS Certification

FIRAS is a third party certification scheme for companies who install both passive and active fire protection systems. Started in 1994 FIRAS Certification has been instrumental in improving standards of installation of fire protection products and systems. This offers many benefits to the construction industry and clients alike.

As part of the FIRAS Schemes, certificated companies are required to employ, on a permanent or contract basis, competent supervisors and technicians (Operators). The technical and practical competence of these operators is assessed by FIRAS Inspectors in the trade disciplines for which certification is held. A register of competent employees is maintained for each certificated company, which is regularly reviewed to ensure that the company maintains a competent workforce whose abilities remain current with the workscope the company provides.

FIRAS Certificated Installer Companies are subject to ongoing random inspection of their installation work. There is also an annual audit of their office systems by FIRAS Inspectors to ensure that compliance with the Scheme is maintained.

Why choose a FIRAS certificated installation contractor?

To gain FIRAS Certification the contractor must have current proven technical and practical competence in the fields for which they are certified. This provides assurance to the client that the contractor is competent to undertake the project. M&M Moran are FIRAS certified for both Installation of Timber Fire Doors and Penetration Sealings.

The FIRAS Register

This register contains the details of companies who are certificated installers of fire protection in accordance with the requirements of the FIRAS Schemes. Each FIRAS Certificated company is required to continue to demonstrate compliance with industry standards, material/product manufacturer installation instructions in order to assure clients that the fire protection installed by them is correct to specification and will afford the required fire protection. 

Compliance In Three Easy Steps

Maintaining fire separation is a legal requirement, and proper fire stopping is crucial to achieving this. It takes skilled professionals with expertise to properly seal penetrations between fire resisting elements and select the appropriate fire stopping detail for each specific situation.

Prior to specifying any fire stopping measures, it is essential to conduct a thorough assessment of the fire breaks in question. This involves consulting the fire strategy documentation to determine the required wall resistance, which can range from 30 to 120 minutes. A comprehensive inspection should then be carried out to identify the types of penetrations, services, and wall construction, in order to select the appropriate fire stopping detail that matches each specific situation.

Fire stopping measures must be supported by evidence of their efficacy and effectiveness in reinstating fire separation in the specific conditions in which they will be applied. The behavior of various materials and services in the face of heat differs, and it is crucial to ensure that the fire stopping detail is a suitable match for the materials and services in question. Properly selecting and installing the appropriate fire stopping measures is a crucial aspect of effective fire safety management.

As buildings change over time, even a fully fire stopped property can become a risk if minor adjustments or modifications are made without proper consideration for fire safety. Conducting an annual inspection program on a sample of fire seals installed can help identify any potential wear and tear or new penetrations, allowing for timely rectification and ensuring continued fire safety compliance.

At M & M Moran, we believe that fire safety is non-negotiable. We are committed to delivering comprehensive solutions that not only meet, but exceed regulatory requirements. Protecting the safety of our clients and their occupants is our top priority, and we take this responsibility very seriously.
