Our surveyors will visit your premises with access equipment, photographic equipment (including endoscopes for a more intrusive survey) and a handheld IT based device to log each separate breach.
We would work alongside your maintenance team and follow any protocol to carry out our surveys to cause as little disruption as possible.
We would then issue the photographic report along with our proposals to remedy our findings.
New breaches are usually produced by contractors installing new cables, pipes etc. (typically fire alarm upgrades or new data cables). After these services have been installed these new openings are not properly sealed and are therefore a breach in the wall which will act as a passage for smoke and fire.
