Understanding your risk is critical to preventing cladding fires
DOCUMENTATION REVIEW + CLADDING TESTING
We help review as-built drawings and manufacturer data sheets for installed façade cladding materials and thermal barrier systems. If none exist, we will conduct small-scale materials testing in our in-house labs to determine flammability. Our tests include samples of all materials and simulate various exposure conditions.
If replacement or repair is needed, our team can review contractor drawings, test small samples of proposed replacement product, oversee large-scale testing of replacement materials and systems as well as provide construction oversight. Our team of fire protection engineers design necessary upgrades to existing systems to mitigate impact of a potential cladding fire. We help prepare documentation for AHJs for approval of remediation plans.
