Too often, rogue contractors are leaving homeowners and businesses with poor quality workmanship and service.
Reliable and Professional Service
Accredited companies provide consistent and reliable service; they are professionals who take their job seriously. Being recognised or certified by a trade association means that the people carrying out the work on your premises take genuine interest in their profession. They have shown commitment to their trade and taken the time to obtain adequate and appropriate training and certification. A contractor or company that is unaccredited or not fully trained is more likely to lack commitment and professionalism, resulting in potential cost-cutting, inadequate standards and ultimately liability, should anything go wrong, on you.
When choosing a passive fire company, make sure they hold accreditation from a recognised certifying authority. Checkmate Fire became founder members of the BRE / LPCB passive fire protection installer scheme LPS 1531 in 2007 and since then have joined LPS 1197 which audits and certifies fire door inspection and remediation and LPS 1271 which covers new fire door installations. Checkmate is now proud to add to this ISO9001, which we have just been awarded. ISO9001, the internationally recognized Quality Management System, means our customers can rest assured they will receive a consistent quality of service through this quality management system and accreditation. A professional company will never hesitate to provide proof of their credentials.
Regardless of your passive fire needs, you expect high standards and quality from your contractor. Accredited companies and tradespeople use their training and qualifications to provide clients with the best possible results. A trained and accredited company has experience in passive fire products and services for all types of commercial and residential projects, including healthcare, education and housing. They also have the skills and experience needed to tackle the most complex projects, including industrial and construction projects.
With certification and accreditation, you can be confident that your passive fire company has obtained the skills needed and more importantly work to an effective and robust Quality Management System (QMS) which ensures we focus on the important areas of business and improve efficiency to complete any project at the highest of standards. While not all passive fire measures are visible in day-to-day life Quality workmanship will save you money in the long-term and avoid unnecessary follow-up work to repair or replace poorly installed or completed work, not to mention any financial liability.
Safe and accredited Work
With accreditation and certification, you have peace of mind knowing that your passive fire company is legally permitted to perform the work they are qualified to undertake. An accredited company puts safety first and they are trained to complete projects safely. These professionals recognise and respond appropriately to potential hazards or risks to property, workers, clients and the general public. A certified company will also only employ people who are trained and qualified.
A bad passive fire installation can result in cracks and holes, compartments unsafe, fire doors that don’t meet or seal the compartment and unprotected building structures.
