The use of Giffen approved to LPS 1531 will give confidence to Clients, Specifiers, Building Control Officers, the Fire Authority and Insurers that the passive fire protection has been installed correctly, (a requirement of the scheme is that the fire protection systems installed are identified to all interested parties). The benefits of using an LPCB 1531 certified company are recognised in Approved Document B (Fire Safety) Volume 2 and the CLG guides for the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRO). The use of approved products and installers will help the Responsible Person to comply with the RRO.
Passive Fire Protection Products are designed to protect Life and Property in the event of a fire, however safety can be compromised by poor installation or application which may result in premature failure in the event of a fire. Correct installation is therefore essential to ensure that the performance of products is not compromised and the products provide the designated level of protection required.
Giffen Group are certified by the LPCB to ensure that our Operatives that apply Passive Fire Protection Products are fully trained and possess the necessary skills and technical ability to complete the installation correctly.
