Inspection – Fire-resistant claddings

Homepage Inspections Inspection – Fire-resistant claddings

Fire-resistant claddings are an indivisible part of the fire safety equipment of the building in accordance with Section 5(1)(a) of Act No. 133/1985, on Fire Safety, and Section 9 of Ordinance No. 246/2001, on Fire Prevention.

Inspections of fire-resistant claddings therefore also fall under the requirement of periodic annual inspections. Inspections are done to the extent and in the manner established by the legal regulations, standards-related requirements and the original documentation of the manufacturer.

Fire-resistant claddings are essential for:

  • prevention of losses to human and animal health, ensuring safe evacuations,
  • prevention of losses due to the spread of fire and smoke on the property of the affected building and adjacent buildings that are at risk from the fire,
  • avoiding penalties during preventive inspections by the FD,
  • enabling effective and safe intervention of the FD,
  • application of insurance claims based on valid operational checks.

How to recognize fire-resistant cladding?

Fire-resistant cladding cannot be distinguished at first glance. It can be fitted with different kinds of surface finish (including coating, plastering and ceramic cladding). You can learn more about the application used from the project documentation.

Fire cladding checks must be carried out on elements made of steel, concrete, glued carbon slats and on concrete structures poured into trapezoidal sheets.

Our company provides operational checks for systems by companies such as Isover, Paroc, Rockwooll, Knauf and Siniat on the basis of valid certificates.

Our services cover more than just inspections. If needed, we will arrange the renovation of all areas where repairs are required.
