So you've done your research, followed FDNY regulations and had your business location flameproofed. How do you know that the treatment that was performed is actually effective?

Enter the field flame test.

Once materials at a business property have been properly treated with flame repellents, they need to undergo a field flame test to ensure that they are actually indeed fire resistant.  This test will be performed by a valid C-15 Certificate of Fitness holder, likely the same company that performed the fireproofing treatments at your establishment.  The field flame test is only to be performed by a C-15 Certificate of Fitness holder, to ensure that the test is done accurately, safely, and that no property damage is incurred during the test - and, of course, to make sure a real fire isn't started in the process.

As a business owner, one of the most important behind-the-scenes things you can prepare for is public safety.  While there are so many aspects to public safety, one that should be (and needs to be) considered is fire safety  - and more specifically, flameproofing.  Flameproofing an establishment is one of the top things you can do to protect the public and your property should there be an unfortunate fire. For most, knowledge about the process and requirements of flameproofing is probably way out in left field, but having just a little education in this area can ensure that your place of business will be properly fireproofed according to FDNY standards.

The concept of 'best practice' is a common idea in most professional fields.  The meaning behind is it that there are particular methods that have yielded the best results.  This concept of 'best practices' applies to the industry of flameproofing as well.  As a business owner, it's important for you to have some familiarity with these best practices so you can make sure that whatever flameproofing outfit is doing the job for you will be implementing those methods that have been proven best. Fortunately, here at Manhattan Flameproofing, we are fully aware of the lastest and most effective methods and treatments in our field.
