Passive Fire Protection
A crucial part of any buildings fire strategy is the passive fire protection within the property, the aim of which is to slow the spread of fire and smoke throughout the building and ultimately protect life and property. The use of fire doors and fire-stopping within the compartmentation helps to protect the escape routes out of the building in the event of a fire and prevent them from filling with smoke; aiding safe and clear escape.
With compartmentation built into the building’s fabric, ensuring the integrity of these compartments is fundamental to allow safe escape in the event of a fire. Therefore, both reinstating fire barriers when penetrated and repairing fire doors when damaged, are essential works that are required to be carried out as soon as any non-conformities are identified. Additionally, it is critical to use certified and tested products for the penetration or damage present, as well as using a suitably accredited company, such as Fire Plus Security, with responsible, competent and fully trained engineers.
