What is a compartmentation survey?
Compartmentation is the process of sub-dividing buildings to help prevent the rapid spread of smoke and fire. Detailed compartmentation surveys are assessments of how well a dwelling can protect important escape routes and high-value areas, through sampling and locating potential fire dampers.
Compartmentation surveys are often overlooked, but can be one of the most effective methods of keeping a building and its occupants safe.
