Firestop Installations

Many properties are hiding a fire hazard that many may not know about.

At the spot where cables or piping go through the floor, wall, roof or partition wall, the inlet must be sealed so that the required fire performance class stays at least the same as if there was no inlet. Firestops often remain undone after the electric and piping work for the property.

The responsibility for maintaining firestops falls to the owner of the property even if the authorities had checked them or not.

A firestop is an essential part of fire safety in a property. The experts of Temrex Oy can do even the most challenging firestop installations with uncompromised workmanship and quality products. Notes about the firestop installation will be left at the place of the firestop so that it remains easily recognizable. If necessary, we will also write a report about all the firestop installations done to the property which can be delivered to the rescue authorities.

Creating and Updating Rescue Plans

Important part of promoting security is to make a rescue plan and keep it up to date. The plan anticipates and prevents possible threatening situations.  A rescue plan is a document whose job is to work as a tool for promoting security for the owner, holder, operator and other community of the property.

A rescue plan should contain a plan of all the measures that the creator of the plan intends to take to prevent occurrence of incidents in their operations and property. The plan should also prepare for protection of the property and surrounding environment in dangerous situations as well as prepare for rescue measures they can do independently.

Temrex Oy does rescue plans for properties, farms / agriculture and events in a clear but very comprehensive way. Compilation of a rescue plan always includes a visit from our expert to the destination so that all the possible safety factors can be accounted for in the best possible way.
