The Passive Fire Protection (PFP) and compartmentation of property play an important role in maintaining the integrity of a properties fire escapes and limiting the spread of fire.
We offer passive fire protection solutions
Your properties Passive Fire Protection (PFP) comprises of the materials used to construct the property and the processes which they have been installed with the aid in the prevention of the spread of fire and smoke.
If a properties PFP is maintained correctly, it will provide vital time for people to escape from the building in the event of a fire. However, if compromised, faulty PFP can increase the spread of fire and smoke and increase the risk of not being able to escape.
Designed to stop the spread of fire
Compartments are built within properties to contain a fire to a specified area and stop the spread of fire and smoke in an emergency aiding an evacuation. However, when compartments are compromised through damage or lack of care, a fire will continue to spread and will reduce the effectiveness of the properties escape plan.
Intumescent materials are used extensively throughout properties within compartmentation as they swell in the presence of heat and reduce the spread of fire by sealing gaps and increasing the burn time of combustible materials.
Intumescent materials are most commonly used in Fire Doors to stop the spread of fire through corridors and compartments, but can also be used to seal gaps created from building works, for example the running of cables through walls.
