Bolster System Surveys
We utilize the Bolster System mobile app to provide a comprehensive survey so that details regarding potential remedial work are documented and stored in a cloud-based database. Upon survey completion, the system will generate a report and layout drawing of all findings.
Bolster Systems offers the only fully integrated fire stopping app that records the whole survey and fire stopping installation process, even down to printing labels with a specially coded mobile printer.
Bolster Systems maps the location of all walls and floors, schedules each fire-stopped area (along with a picture of the installation), records when it was installed, what materials were used and its reference number and printed label provide a permanent record of fire-stopped locations for contractors carrying out renovation work.
The system not only provides evidence of fire-stop compliance when a building is completed, it also provides building owners with a system they can use to maintain and manage an inventory of the impact of maintenance works on post-occupancy fire-barrier integrity.
Drop pins have their own unique reference with a photographic record (before and after). Clients have real time access to survey works and remedial works, giving all parties peace of mind that budgets are being utilised correctly.
We take pride in using the DoorCheck app to help install, inspect and maintain fire doors. This app is highly accessible and is world leading when it comes to fire door inspections and compliance software. The DoorCheck app allows real time access to inspection checklists, job site audits, recertification summary, corrective actions and preventive actions.
A passive fire protection system is meant to contain a fire within its origin compartment, thereby limiting the spread of fire and smoke for a limited period, as determined by the local building code and fire code. Passive fire protection measures, such as firestops, fire walls, and fire doors, are tested to determine the final assembly’s fire-resistance rating, usually expressed in hours of fire resistance (e.g., 13, 34, 1, 112, 2, 3, 4 hours). The certification listing explains the limitations of the rating.
In a building’s fire safety system, fire compartmentation plays an important role. It is important to design the building to contain the growth and spread of fire and maintain safe escape routes by installing fire-resistant partitions and doors.
