Audit

Wall types, location & Fire Resistance Levels

Check against compartmentation drawings that no new fire and/or smoke walls have been added or removed and ensure fire resistance levels and/or smoke leakage requirements are known.

Yes/No
Penetration types - Survey

Check against compartmentation drawings and associated penetration schedules that no new penetrations have been added or removed.

Amend compartmentation drawing and penetration schedule to be representative of "as installed" penetration.

Individual Penetration

Check individual penetrations identified in the compartmentation drawings and/or penetration schedule.

Walls

Check that walls continue up to floor or roof above and that the head to wall penetration has no integrity breaches.

Check any masonry walls for any visible damage such as substantial cracks.

Check plasterboard walls to ensure there is no damage such as cracks or openings.

Dampers

Check the integrity of the fire resisting construction in the immediate vicinity of the damper is not impaired from the accessible side.

Floors

Check against compartmentation drawings that no fire-rated floors have been added or removed and ensure FRL and/or smoke leakage requirements are known.

Check against compartmentation drawings and associated penetration schedules that no new penetrations have been added or removed.

Amend compartmentation drawings and penetration schedules to be representative of "as installed" penetrations.

Check to ensure that the floor is not damaged.

Ceilings

Check against compartmentation drawings that no new fire-rated ceilings have been added or removed.

Check against compartmentation drawings and associated penetration schedules (maintenance records) that no new penetrations have been added or removed.

Amend compartmentation drawings to be representative of "as installed" penetrations.

Check individual penetrations for penetrations identified on the compartmentation drawings and/or in the penetration records.

Bulkheads

Check against compartmentation drawings that no new fire rated bulkheads have been added and ensure FRL and/or smoke leakage requirements are known.

Check against compartmentation drawings and associated penetration schedules that no new penetrations have been added or removed. NOTE: all light fittings and access panels/ceiling hatches should be checked.

Amend compartmentation drawings and penetration schedules to be representative of "as installed" penetrations.

Check individual penetrations identified on the compartmentation drawings and/or in penetration schedules.

Beams, columns, trusses

Check steel members requiring FRL from structural steel drawings/plans.

Check visually for areas of non-compliance:
If mineral coating, loss of adhesion, tap on coating to check for uniform cohesion.
Mechanical damage
If intumescent coating, flaking or mechanical damage.
If fire protective boards, missing boards, loss of adhesion or mechanical damage

Repair with the same product/system as the existing or approved equivalent.

Fire rated glazing

Identify all glazing requiring an FRL from plans or approved documents

Find tag/labelling identifying tested system & FRL.
NOTE: label should be clearly visible on either frame or glass and the identity of the manufacturer and FRL of the system shown.

Is the glass free from crazing or crackling?

Is the framing free from distortion, visible defects or corrosion at any point along the frame?

Is the perimeter free from gaps?

Are seals free from deterioration?
