New South Wales Introduces Fire Safety Reforms for New and Existing Buildings 2017-11-29 04:41:51
In July 2017 the New South Wales Government announced a series of building regulatory reforms, largely with respect to fire safety, which came into effect on 1 October 2017. It’s off the back of increased attention to this in the market (and fire safety in general due to the external cladding issues worldwide). NSW is leading the charge by legislating that the people who perform these inspections be ‘competent’.

Trusted experts in passive fire protection FRS can provide annual fire inspection reports that include photographs in order to ensure every building is compliant to Australian safety standards. These reforms are possibly the most important change to the fire protection industry in decades, and FPA Australia is working closely with government and industry to ensure the reforms both improve fire safety outcomes and is practical for the industry. FPA Australia has developed several resources for fire protection practitioners and building owners in response to the NSW reforms.

FRS offers a range of services that involve installation of penetration fire sealing products and fire proofing. They certify all their work to Australian standards. Fire audits determine if a blaze can be contained in the area in which it originated and also check if the buildings essential structural parts are guarded from collapsing due to excessive heat. Both these factors determine how lives and property can be saved in the event of a fire.

The horrors of the Grenfell Tower fire in London are a sobering reminder that there is no room for short cuts or complacency when it comes to fire protection. It appears several fire protection systems within the Grenfell Tower failed resulting in the catastrophic raging chimney effect. Here in Australia, building owners and managers must be sure their buildings are up to code and maintained at all times. Fire Rating by way of the protection of structural steel and penetration sealing is required by The Building Code of Australia to ensure that all buildings have measures in place to protect life and property.

FRS can check if fire rated products are correctly installed. They offer advice on any passive fire related issues that may come up. They can offer ongoing maintenance programmes along with regular inspections of the facilities. FRS can inspect if electrical, plumbing and mechanical services are fire rated to protect against smoke, fire and gas. Their penetration stopping products can be used for internal and external areas to provide maximum protection. These include walls, floors, pipes and cables, paints and other coatings.

FRS has been providing a wide range of quality passive fire protection services to its customers in Melbourne and greater Victoria since 1990 and is a recognised leader within the Australian industry.
