If you have a more specialized project requiring a fire risk assessment, Warringtonfire’s fire safety engineering team in Australia can support you. We have expertise in key fire safety disciplines to be able to provide the most comprehensive and insightful fire risk assessments; meeting legislative requirements but also tailored to client requirements for managing risk effectively within your organization.
What is a fire risk assessment?A fire risk assessment combines a site inspection, which helps identify the good and bad aspects to your building design, and a review of fire safety management; together these allow areas for improvement to be identified. Through a fire risk assessment, you can ensure that you are suitably prepared to prevent fire, manage it effectively should a worst-case real life fire event occur, and provide the best outcomes for ensuring safety, such as through providing suitable escape routes.
Why do I need a fire risk assessment?
A fire risk assessment is probably the most important tool in your arsenal in ensuring the safety of the people using your building and it is mandatory under fire safety legislation.
The drivers for improvement can be legislative, life safety, asset protection or operationally continuity rooted, but in all cases the fire risk assessment provided by Warringtonfire will provide a detailed insight into the fire safety provisions in operation and identify where improvement can be made and what the benefits attained will look like. This will allow you to be confident that you have complied with all your legal responsibilities under local legislation and also allows you to move forward with your project by addressing fire safety risks.
Analysis and Assessment Services
Warringtonfire provide two different types of fire assessment services; technical fire assessments of a product or system and fire safety engineering risk assessments for fire safety and cladding.
CFD Fire Modelling
Solve equations regarding fluid flow and heat transfer from the growth and spread of fire.
Fire Safety Strategy
A fire strategy is the way in which fire safety objectives for a new, altered or existing building are defined and achieved. Warringtonfire’s experienced team of fire safety engineers and consultants in Australia will create the best strategy for your project.
At Warringtonfire, we use a performance-based approach to customise a package of alternative fire safety measures for a design – allowing our clients to achieve their objectives but still maintain the level of fire safety required by the building code and approval authorities.
Fire Evacuation Modelling
Latest technology for fire evacuation modelling in order to create an economical and robust solution.
Radiant Heat Transfer Modelling
Radiant heat transfer modelling is a key tool that the fire safety engineers at Warringtonfire use when trying to predict the expected radiant heat transfer from fires to the surroundings and between buildings.
Fire Brigade Intervention Modelling
We can quantify firefighting activities in our fire engineering assessments by using the fire brigade intervention model (FBIM). The FBIM predicts the time taken by a fire brigade to undertake its activities at the fire scene from time of notification through to control and extinguishment.
Fire Risk Assessment
Key fire safety disciplines enables us to provide the most comprehensive and insightful fire risk assessment.
Cladding Risk Assessment
Warringtonfire Australia has a team of accredited fire safety engineers who can conduct combustible cladding risk assessments for a range of projects.
