The fire safety of buildings has probably never been so high in the public consciousness as it is today – following the Grenfell tragedy in London, the Bronx apartment fire in New York and the recent Liverpool car park incident, this issue has come to the fore for residents, builders, insurance companies and local authorities.
Checkmate Fire Solutions (Checkmate Fire) has been in the fire prevention business for nearly three decades and so it is ideally placed to address these issues. Therefore, it is no surprise to learn that as one the most trusted contractors in specialist passive fire protection, it has seen considerable growth over the past few years, and has become the largest and fastest growing fire prevention company in the UK.
The company provides its services through two divisions – Compliance, which provides inspection and other consultancy services, and Solutions, which offers Third Party Accredited installations. Its services include firestopping/air sealing, fire compartmentation, fire boarding and structural steel protection; as well as fire doors surveying, restoration and installation and a fully bespoke range of fire rated glazing solutions, designed and installed for clients.
By keeping quality and value at the core of its delivery, Checkmate Fire already works with blue-chip clients such as AVIVA, the NHS, Interserve and University College London, which have all seen the benefits first hand of the company’s belief in getting it right first time. By working closely with clients from planning to post-installation, everyone from specifier to end user can be confident that all possible steps have been taken to keep them safe in case of fire –which is ultimately Checkmate Fire’s definitive goal.
