The recent interim report on fire safety identifies the role of smoke control and focuses in particular on the issue of competency in the prevention of future occurrences of life-threatening events.
We have two chartered engineers on eight regulatory committees, including British Standards and European Construction Product Regulations.
Conor Logan has been Chairman of the Smoke Control Association for 9 years. The SCA is actively developing initiatives to improve training, quality and member accreditations.
We are true thought leaders and are actively involved in updating legislation. Who else would you trust to negotiate the labyrinth that is the regulations and guidance documentation?
Colt is in the thick of it when it comes to competency, however that might be defined in the future.
Colt is widely recognised by both industry and regulatory bodies as one of the most qualified smoke control authorities in the country.
Because the systems our Contracting division designs and builds are the most groundbreaking, innovative and complex around, our knowledge is deep and unparalleled.
We’ve got more highly qualified maintenance engineers, stationed in more locations up and down the country, than anyone else. This means that our coverage is truly nationwide, not patchy like some.
Our engineers are guaranteed to be with you within 24 hours. In an emergency, our average response time is 4 hours.
Whether built by Colt or another manufacturer, all types of systems can be expertly repaired, upgraded and maintained by our engineers.
Building occupiers have a legal duty to carry out a Fire Safety Risk Assessment by a company you can trust. Colt is just such a company.
Are you unsure about your obligations with regard to smoke control? Do you know when your system was last checked? If you’re worried that you could be responsible in the event of a fire, get in touch with a competent company who has more knowledge and experience than anyone else.
Colt is just such a company.
