Passive Fire

RESTRICTING THE SPREAD OF FIRE AND SMOKE TO HELP PROTECT YOUR PEOPLE AND BUILDINGS.

Passive Fire Protection (PFP) measures are a critical part of the fire strategy of all buildings. By their nature they are ‘passive’ until there is a fire and only then will their fire performance in-situ be demonstrated.

In the event of fire, the Passive Fire Protection measures i.e. the fire resisting walls, floors, doors and other built-in elements of construction are vital to the stability and integrity of a building by dividing it into areas of manageable risk using compartmentation.

Compartmentation is designed to restrict the growth and spread of smoke and fire giving the occupants time to escape, allowing the firefighters to do their job and limiting the extent of damage.

Protection measures are either provided by the materials from which the building is constructed, or are added to the construction to enhance its fire resistance.

It is vital that these protection measures are correctly designed, specified, installed and
maintained if the building is to behave as expected should fire break out.
