TRUSST Blockchain Solutions exists to solve the critical issues facing our clients, both large and small. Our unique approach is not only what differentiates us, but also what makes us successful. We provide a broad range of services and solutions to help organizations facilitate change, achieve their vision of implementing TRUSST and safety into their projects.
Can you TRUSST your fire door?
Fire doors are one of the most critical elements of passive fire protection, used to provide compartmentation – in other words, containing fire and smoke for a period of time to allow people to be safely rescued and evacuated.
A review undertaken by FDIS certificated fire door inspectors in 2015 revealed the extent of fire door failures being seen on site.
Over 61% of fire doors inspected had problems with fire or smoke seals.
Building with TRUSST enables your fire doors to be registered on the Blockchain from point of manufacture to point of installation ensuring transparency and accountability in the entire process.
Each fire door is tagged and can be scanned so that the user can access the entire history of the door seeing to which standards it was manufactured too, what test results it has passed, when it was installed, when maintenance has been done and when maintenance is needed.

Ensuring safety, quality and transparency through blockchain technology
With today’s increasingly complex supply chain, developers face an even greater challenge to ensure only the best and safest version of their specified materials reach and are installed at site. Building materials see many handlers between creation and installation, which naturally incites more opportunity for safety issues to occur, potentially leading to recalls, major health concerns, or even fatalities.
Other challenges lie in ensuring proper documentation of each step of the supply chain. Without these measures, information can get lost and severely compromise a brand’s image. The current supply chain system does not always allow consumers and other stakeholders to distinguish the true value or origin of building materials adequately. Without assigning dedicated, traceable values to these products, it can be difficult for third parties to verify at what point in the supply chain the issue may have arisen. Awareness of a potential solution — blockchain technology — is rapidly surfacing, however. In fact, nearly six out of 10 large corporations are considering using blockchain.
Digitization of the supply chain
As consumers and participants in the supply chain demand greater transparency, blockchain has the potential to transform how information about a building material flows from manufacturer to site to ensure quality and safety by adding greater visibility and efficiency to the process.
Blockchain technology has the potential to change the way we purchase, sell and make transactions for goods and services. By combining ease of use and the security of cryptography, blockchain can be used for any exchange, agreements or contracts as well as making and tracking payments. It allows the supply chain community to verify and monitor the entire process.
Benefits to the building industry
Blockchain has the potential to serve as a highly beneficial tool for the building industry. Buildings are designed and the materials are specified. Once the bids for construction are won there are numerous times across a supply chain, from raw material manufacturers to processing factories to packaging operations and sometimes contract packagers to shipping and distribution, then to site. With blockchain, each step can be recorded and later viewed in a permanent decentralized repository. Thus, creating traceability, accountability and TRUSST.
For example, should an issue arise with a building product such as flooring, where in the architect has specified the dimensions, and product quality, users with system access can pinpoint and validate where the product originated, what specifics it was made too, what tests have been performed on it, and what safety regulations it complies too. With supply chain information readily available in the decentralized system, stakeholders can get the necessary information immediately and validate that the products are to specifications. End users of the buildings can consistently scan and also TRUSST that the materials used in their living/working environment are safe and non-toxic.
Boosting transparency and TRUSST
Although a key benefit of blockchain is its immediate depiction of data and information, another critical benefit is its added security. The technology enables companies doing business with each other to record transactions indelibly. Blockchain’s strength lies in its trustworthiness as it is impossible to reverse or change what has been recorded. In addition, the technology can also hold many more documents and data than traditional database storage, allowing for more detailed insights and analysis.
With blockchain, brands can not only rest assured that their data is safe but can also build TRUSST with their customers. The technology is designed to provide even greater visibility into the complex steps of the supply chain, which enhances brands’ ability to meet consumer demand for more information about their products or to meet government regulations. Authenticating a product’s journey across the supply chain reveals its exact origin and history, which can help substantiate product claims and ultimately helps build TRUSST.
