Existing issues with fire compartments, floors, fire walls and fire doors were identified and new passive fire protection was put in place. Fire damper survey was also completed.
Products where selected to achieve the 60 minute integrity requirements this included both Hilti penetration sealing products and fire barriers from Rockwool.
All installation where completed in line with Hilti design specifications to achieve a minimum rating of 60 minutes.

Our client has been pleased with the standard and quality of works. Therefore, Global HSE Solutions had received further smaller passive fire protection works throughout the campus.
