How to prevent fire spreading in a commercial property
When a fire starts and once it has been detected, thoughts should turn to how to evacuate a building quickly and safely. It is important that a fire is prevented from spreading far from where it started, which will help to contain it and reduce the damage it can cause.
An owner of a commercial property, such as a shop, office or warehouse will want to protect their staff and equipment. Once a fire has broken out, it is vital that it is contained and put out as safely and efficiently as possible. Business owners can prevent fire spreading through the use of both active and passive fire protection systems.
Active fire protection: Active fire protection systems are effective in suppressing a fire and preventing it from spreading any further. Fire extinguishers and sprinkler systems are well suited for this task and can help ensure that critical processes within a business can get up and running as soon as possible.
Passive fire protection: Passive fire protection systems are integrated within the existing structure of a building and are designed to prevent fire from spreading. For example, fire doors and fire compartmentation is designed to withstand the extreme heat from a fire and confine it to a limited area within a building, allowing occupants to exit safely away from the danger.
