WHAT IS PASSIVE FIRE PROTECTION?
Our main field is passive fire protection in addition to water and sound resistance. But everybody might not know what passive fire protection means. Fire is horrendous. That is something most people agree upon, and especially those who have been unlucky to experience it. But how can we avoid fire? The truth is that it is impossible! We can not prevent fires from starting; what we can do is to stop the fire spreading until it is put out or it stops on its own due to lack of oxygen or fuel.
This will be accomplished with passive fire protection (PFP). Buildings are normally separated into ’sterile’ areas that will contain fire in a particular area. These sterile areas are known as fire compartments. Occupants of buildings in areas remote from the fire source are protected from fire and smoke by these compartments. It is also vital that all escape routes are constructed as fire compartments to maintain them free of smoke and heat. For PFP to be effective it requires installation by trained people. Correctly tested products, trained installers and fire safety training, will ensure fire safety in buildings!
