Why we need Injecta Fire Barrier | The problem
In order to determine whether the external wall system is ‘safe’, it will be necessary to assess the nature of the materials comprising the external wall and the state of the passive fire protection (cavity barriers/closers, fire stopping and compartmentation generally).
It is likely that this will have to be undertaken by way of intrusive survey, unless accurate as-built records and evidence of compliance have been retained, which is unlikely for buildings constructed prior to Grenfell.
It has become abundantly clear that the standards of construction in external wall systems are not to the standards required and this leads to an increased fire risk. In many instances there is no cavity fire barrier or compartmentation and other buildings where these elements are found to have been installed at construction phase the installation is defective.
The lack of adequate fire protection within cavities means that flames, smoke and combustion gases can spread as a hidden hazard resulting in multiple properties being effected in the event of a fire incident occurring, with potentially devasting consequences for building occupiers.
Injecta Fire Barrier can help keep costs down for retrospectively installing cavity barriers in high rise buildings. This solution minimises disruption for occupiers and avoiding the need for façade removal.
