This will consist of a fire safety inspection to be carried out in all high rise flats across Leeds to establish if there are any breaches in the compartmentation within individual flats that would allow smoke to spread into other flats.  A 10% inspection programme has already taken place with significant findings recorded.

 

The areas to check are where services penetrate the floor slab and rise from one floor to the next. These include the mains electrical cables, any communication cables, pipe work, water, gas, overflows and soil stacks. If the property contains any internal drainage, these should also be checked.

 

Void flats can be checked more intrusively. This may include removing panels where services are running behind.

 

Any flats, voids found during the inspections with compartmentataion breaches will require fire stopping using a range of materials to provide a minimum fire resistance of 60 minutes.
