Let Certifire put you in charge of your fireproof penetration data
At Swart & Sons we live and breathe fire safety. We specialise in not just the installation of fireproof penetrations but the inspection and certification of them... so you know your penetrations are 100% compliant.
We’ve even developed our own proprietary certification system - Certifire - that allows us to record the results of our inspection onsite using mobile devices.
Those results are immediately uploaded to our central database where they can be accessed by anybody with the appropriate authorisation on their own mobile device or desktop computer - immediately or twelve months down the track - with just a few mouse clicks.
