With Golden Thread Fire Delay / Bolster APP

Welcome to GOLDEN THREAD FIRE DELAY

Golden Thread Fire Delay is a specialist market-leading Passive Fire Protection (PFP) company, whose services include the installation of fire stopping systems, the inspection, installation and remediation of fire doors, fire compartmentation surveys, the application of intumescent coatings, sprayed cementitious and thermal coatings, all types of fire protection board, and soffit fire, thermal and acoustic lining systems.

Our focus is to help clients, both big and small, deliver and manage passive fire protection, including providing project management services and assisting in the creation of a ‘Golden Thread of Information’ in relation to the life safety structural fire components installed in buildings.

Those responsible for existing buildings shouldn’t use the absence of a satisfactory paper trail as an excuse to avoid making their buildings fire compliant. Accredited documents can be created quickly and cost effectively as industry standards are available to do this, e.g. BRE / LPCB Standard LPS 1197 allows previously uncertified ‘nominal’ fire doors to be inspected and certified and they can thereafter be inspected, remediated and LPCB Certified annually to provide ‘golden thread’ management control of their function and compliance.

Two essential fire door considerations are Criticality and Usage. Understanding these factors can influence a fire door’s specification and maintenance regime

Fire Tested Systems

There isn’t a ‘one type suits all’ firestopping solution; as shown in this image, the materials used vary depending on the location, size of required seal, what services breach the penetration, the fire rating required, if there are airsealing or acoustic requirements and any other considerations such as moisture and movement.

Manufacturers test their products for all of these factors and then create and supply ‘detail drawings’ to reflect how they’ve been tested and how they should be installed to replicate and achieve the required fire rating.

Firestopping companies need to record what has been installed in what location and who has installed it to provide adequate quality assurance. On new build and refurbishment projects this level of detail is also required to provide building owners with a ‘golden thread’ of information.
