Passive Fire Protection

Imagine if a fire took hold in your building, would it spread quickly and consume everything in its path? Statistically 40% of business will be out of business within 12 – 18 months following a major fire.

You may have taken the necessary precautions to prevent a fire happening in the first place, but does your building have adequate passive fire protection to minimise the spread of a fire? Essential for the life safety of the occupants and to maintain the building structure, passive fire protection plays an important role. Invisible and often forgotten, passive fire protection includes fire resistant walls, floors and doors, which build compartments for containment.

Over the lifespan of any building, changes are likely to be made to the existing fabric of the building but also to potential changes of use, updating and expansion. Regular assessments are essential of the fire safety measures to the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order need to take place to ensure that fire safety provision is maintained.
