LPS 1500 Certification Obtained For Firewall Installation
Stancold have recently achieved the LPS 1500 standard becoming one of a few Contractors in the UK certified by the LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) to install LPS 1208 approved fire-resisting compartmentation systems.
Being already accredited by LPCB’s parent company, BRE, for quality management systems (ISO 9001), this LPCB certification refers specifically to the installation of LPS 1208 passive fire protection products. It gives even greater credibility and confidence to our customers that we are fully qualified and competent to install LPS 1208 approved passive fire protection that delivers the project’s fire protection requirements.
How does the certification benefit our customers?
This approval will benefit specifiers, architects, main contractors, regulators, and end clients ensuring that by working with Stancold on a firewall project they’ll be receiving an insurance approved product installed in an approved manner, underwritten by a leading 3rd party, giving complete peace of mind for our Firewall clients.
After the completion of each firewall project Stancold will supply the customer with a written confirmation called Certificate of Conformity (C of C) declaring that:
– the installation and application of the passive fire protection system satisfies the project requirements;
– it has been installed in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations and
– it has been suitably fire tested or assessed.
A copy of the C of C will also be sent to LPCB.
Procedure for obtaining and maintaining the LPCB Approval LPS 1500 standard
Stancold have undergone an initial Office Assessment involving the detailed review of documentation of specific firewall projects, installed products, quality testing and training records.
This was then followed by stringent Site Audits of 3 ongoing and completed Stancold firewall projects across the UK. The LPCB auditors were assessing fixings, fire protection and how the whole firewall system was installed.
At the end of the process, the auditors concluded that Stancold fully comply with LPS 1500 requirements and have the necessary skills and technical ability to install LPS 1208 passive fire resistant products correctly.
The LPS 1500 covers the following areas of passive fire protection:
Fire resistant walls, floors and ceilings approved to LPS 1208 such as Eurobond and Trimo Firewall Systems which Stancold have been installing for many years
In order to maintain the accreditation there will be ongoing site and audit inspections by LPCB.
A partnership between Mr Adams and Mr Rowland, two metalworker friends back from the war. Over the years, they became one of the first companies in England making cork filled coldroom panels that were sandwiched between timber frames and vapor repellent faces infilled with rope fibres, bitumen and caulk to create a seal.
Name change to Stancold Coldstore Construction
Where the name originated from is a combination of urban legend and myth. Some say it was the idea of an installer called Stan, some say it was a “clever use” of the concept of 'Standing in the Cold'. However we got here, we are proud of our roots!
The Gillham family steps in
Mervyn Gillham came from a different field and saw the potential within Stancold to become a leading company in this specialist marketplace. In 1997, his son Kevin Gillham joins the team.
Stancold acquires Mercury Coldrooms
Stancold becomes one with the well reputed local coldstore business, Mercury Coldrooms, bringing a wealth of knowledge and a great team of people to the company. Today, the majority of the senior management team of Stancold and our top project managers are originally from Mercury.
As a result of rapid expansion, Stancold moves into a new 2600 m² building conveniently located just off the M4 motorway in Avonmouth. This exciting change has allowed us to consolidate all teams, knowledge and resource into one central hub, whilst being able to effectively cover the whole of the UK and beyond.
From father to son
Mervyn Gillham retires at a young age to a warm country with a cold beer. His son, Kevin Gillham, takes over as Managing Director and remains to this day.
Gilcrest Group is established with a separate manufacturing division to provide specialist composite panels to the broader market whilst supporting Stancold's continued development.
Stronger team and offering
Stancold strengthens its team and offering to the market by introducing innovative uses of coldstore panels for other applications such as firewalls. Throughout the recession, Stancold remained profitable and retains all the key personnel who make the business what it is. A core of staff at this time have been in the same business for 20 years.
Stancold remains strong, completing many projects across an ever broadening spectrum of industries with an enviable reputation for offering outstanding customer service. We are devoted to giving you great value and total support which will enable us to be proud of your project and worthy of your next one!
