Passive Fire Protection Wakefield

Flux Fire Protection carries out fire compartmentation surveys in both existing properties and those which are live construction sites with work still underway in and around Wakefield. Our head offices are based in Halifax, giving us the ideal location to be working on projects across all of Yorkshire.

Once one of our comprehensive fire compartmentation surveys has been carried out, Flux Fire Protection can then go on to offer a bespoke passive fire protection solution. The individual nature of our quotes means that we can offer each client a solution specific to their needs and project, rather than taking a ‘one size fits all’ approach. If we come on board with the project in the early stages, this means that there will be value engineering solutions available. This will work to ensure that fire compartmentation standard are met in accordance with UK building regulations. It also means a commercially advantageous rate for all of our clients. We achieve this by proposing alternative products, methods of construction and sequencing options.

A Bit about Wakefield

This is a cathedral City that sits on the River Calder in West Yorkshire with a population of around 99,000 people. It lies just nine miles south of Leeds. It is well-linked to other Yorkshire towns and cities by road, it lies between three major motorways – the M1 to the west, A1 to the east and the M62 to the north. The A1 -M1 link road that opened in 1999 gives easier access to North Yorkshire and also bypasses Leeds for easier travel.

Wakefield is most famous for its cathedral, coal mining heritage and, strangely, rhubarb! It’s also home to the largest high security prison in West Europe. Wakefield cathedral is an impressive building that has the tallest spire in Yorkshire, standing at 75m tall. It was originally a parish church which then underwent renovations and repairs which have made it into the beautiful structure that it is today.

Wakefield has a particularly strong coal mining heritage and this can be seen in action at the National Coal Mining Museum, based at the nearby former Caphouse Colliery.

It also has lots of parks just outside of the City centre, giving plenty of open space for recreation.
