Kiwa R2B’s quick scan Fire Safety in Buildings is an independent investigation to determine the current status of fire safety precautions. This can take place on two levels:
1. Quick scan
Based on the basic principles (permit, law, basic documents) it is established administratively and visually in broad terms to what extent the existing fire protection measures are adequate.
2. Zero inspection
The zero inspection consists of the quick scan mentioned above plus a random functional test. We conduct investigations in the following areas:
- Structural fire safety;
- Fire alarm systems;
- Evacuation alarm systems;
- Smoke and heat extraction and overpressure installations;
- Automatic fire extinguishing systems;
- Emergency lighting installations;
- CO/LPG and gas detection installations;
- Small fire extinguishers and dry risers.
The result of the investigation is a report describing the status of the assessed fire safety facilities, at the level of:
- Starting point document(s);
