The smart way to monitor passive fire products

Innovative app helps all stakeholders across a project achieve digital Golden Thread of information required by law

In association with
The FireDNA cloud-based app helps to ensure that architects' passive fire product specifications are enforced from inception to installation and sign off.
The FireDNA cloud-based app helps to ensure that architects' passive fire product specifications are enforced from inception to installation and sign off.

FireDNA is an award-winning passive fire product monitoring system and mobile app.

It has been developed for everyone involved in passive fire product specification (through NBS Chorus), manufacture, installation, inspection, management and maintenance.

It is also useful for those that live and work within environments where passive fire products are installed and are now required, under new legislation, to be digitally catalogued and monitored.

FireDNA delivers that digital Golden Thread of information for all passive fire products in the built environment from fire doors, panels and partitioning (including all intumescent seals, glazing and ironmongery), through to fire cables, dampers and ductwork.

FireDNA software catalogues product specifications and manufacturers' product data, digitally shares it with contractors and installers, who in turn add their installation data, passing that on to building owners, facilities management teams and tenant management organisations.

That data can then be used by building control, maintenance teams, fire inspectors and insurers and viewed by tenants and residents alike, with a simple swipe of a mobile device.

FireDNA digitally links everyone in the chain of responsibility and creates a Golden Thread of information across the full product lifecycle from cradle to grave. It has been designed and developed to enable:

  • Architects and specifiers to specify ‘digitally enabled’ passive fire products using NBS Chorus by searching NBS Source for ‘Data Communication Products’. The clauses are: CAWS: L20/55 and L20/480 doorsets and uniclass: Pr_70_75_20_22 digitally enabled data tags. The FireDNA monitoring system can be specified to be added to fire rated products such as doors and doorsets. This specification can then be passed along the chain of responsibility. This helps to ensure that architects' and specifiers' passive fire product specifications are enforced from inception to installation and sign-off.
  • Manufacturers to centrally deliver their certificates, production data, specification PDFs, installation guidance and third party certification to main and sub-contractors and installers.
  • Contractors and installers to add installation statements, compliance or competency evidence and installation photos, which, once inspected and approved, can be digitally signed off and handed over to the end client.
  • Fire inspectors to conduct audits and inspections quickly and efficiently, which automatically output to detailed MS Word doc reports and Excel spreadsheets - again with photographs and detailed descriptions of passes, failures or required remedial works.
  • Building owners and facilities and tenant management teams to manage the compliance data and ongoing maintenance and remedial records and updates, and, through their dashboard, can also assign on-site inspection or maintenance teams.
  • Maintenance teams to access work schedules and update the ‘live status’ data once remedial works are completed.

FireDNA helps to protect the public across all sectors: residential, commercial, education, healthcare, retail and government, giving peace-of-mind to tenants and residents that the passive fire products in their buildings are compliant and safe.
