Fire Protection - Fire Stopping and Fire Prevention

Fire Protection

Kilnbridge is a leading fire protection contractor with unrivalled expertise, providing solutions in the specification and installation of passive fire protection systems throughout the UK and internationally.

We are FIRAS accredited installers of fire protection systems which provides our clients with the assurance that our installers, supervision and management systems continue to meet industry specific standards. FIRAS certification has been instrumental in improving standards of installation of fire protection products and systems to the benefit of the construction industry and the clients it serves.

In addition, we are a full member of the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP). As the UK’s leading trade association relating to built-in fire protection, the ASFP is dedicated to the protection of life, property, the environment and our heritage and promotes continuous improvement in all aspects of passive fire protection. The ASFP strives to promote excellence in the design and installation of fire protection products through high quality and technical expertise by fostering the education and training of all those involved in the development, specification and use of built-in fire protection.

Fire protection - Fire stop contractors, Fire Barriers, Acoustic sealing, Intumescent sealing

Fire penetration seals, commonly referred to as fire stopping, ensure the integrity of fire-resistant compartments in buildings by preventing fire and smoke from spreading to adjacent areas.

Our product range includes but is not limited to: load-bearing compound fire seals, temporary seals, intumescent coated boards, mastics, pipe wraps and collars.

We also supply and install fire stops in penetrations where services such as cables and cable trays pass through walls and ceilings. These are mostly intumescent products which expand under thermal intensity to fill gaps and voids created at junctions between building interfaces.

Fire Penetration Seals - Acoustic sealing, Intumescent sealing, Insulation, Fire rated ducting

Kilnbridge’s specific expertise allows us to assess project-specific requirements and specifications to derive the optimum solution from a range of fire tested systems for the protection of structural steel.

Our capabilities include the application of intumescent paint systems, cementitious sprays and a complete range of board systems.

Structural Fire Protection

Our soffit systems provide thermal, fire and acoustic insulation in all areas of a structure where the prevention of condensation or cold bridging may also be a requirement.

We use the lowest profile insulation layer to achieve thermal resistivity values, ensuring no interruption to the installation of building services beneath the soffit.

Insulation can be fixed directly to the soffit or to a range of grid work systems.

Soffit Insulation

Our fire/acoustic barriers and fire curtains are used to create compartments within multi-tenant buildings and floor spaces to prevent the spread of fire and smoke and reduce sound transmission. They are also used to safeguard protected areas such as designated fire escape routes.

Our team will identify the optimum solution whilst taking into account factors such as insulation requirements, size, location, differential movements and adjacent thermally weak structures.

Fire/Acoustic Barriers and Fire Curtains

Fire-resistant ducting can provide up to four hours’ resistance against the damaging effects of heat and smoke.

We offer a choice of materials and systems, each of which will produce a fully fire-resistant service duct.

Kilnbridge is an approved installer of FM Blue fire systems and other high impact fire-rated solutions which provide robust wall, ceiling and ductwork systems that have a fire resistance of up to four hours and blast resistance of up to 14kPa.

Fire-rated Ducting

We supply and install passive fire protection seals to floor slab edges to provide up to 120 minutes of fire resistance in all forms of approved cladding applications.

Capable of sealing gaps from 50 to 400mm, our installed slab-edge systems can withstand substantial tolerance to movement in tall buildings and deliver superior noise reduction values, as well as preventing the spread of fire and smoke.
