Fire protection services from DDS
Safeguarding your property
As a commercial painting and decorating company, a large part of our role is in fire protection services. In fact, to many of the local authorities and large principal contractors we work for, Distinctive Decorating Services is known as one of the UK’s leading fire protection companies.
Fire protection – Merseyside based, UK wide
We have been operating as DDS from our base here in Liverpool, since 2004. Founding members of our team have amassed three decades of experience in the field of painting and decorating, including the fire protection services that fall under our remit. As such, you will not find a more experienced, professional team within any fire protection companies in the country.
We know our role inside and out and we perform it with pride and precision.
When it comes to fire protection services, our role is to help you safeguard your property by treating structural steel with intumescent paint.
How we carry out fire protection services
Treating structural steel in a way that helps to prevent or slow the spread of fire is imperative to the safety of any structure.
The application of flame retardant paint offers 30, 60 or 90 minute protection against fire. The level of protection and thereby the length of time that the paint protects for, is determined by many factors that take into account, including what the building is used for. We then work to a specification provided to us. When treating steel, as part of our fire protection services, we require drawings in advance. This is so that quantities can be calculated.
Following our work, tests will be carried out to ensure that the building is adequately protected. Our suppliers will provide a certificate to guarantee our workmanship.
Unlike some fire protection companies we are also a full service commercial painter and decorator, so if you want a final aesthetic that differs from the one left by the protective paint, we can apply a top coat or the steel can be boxed in.
Fire protection for Merseyside
Though we work throughout the UK for some of the largest public and private sector contractors, we are a Liverpool business. As such, always keen to work in our local area. If you are in need of fire protection services, based in the Northwest and you’d like to work with a local contractor please contact us. Recent local projects of ours include playing our part in the full refurbishment of Aintree University Hospital.
