Passive Fire Protection

Expert support for Passive Fire Protection

Passive Fire Protection, also known as Built Fire Protection, plays a significant role in safeguarding people occupying properties, as well as limiting fire and smoke damage to buildings and contents.

It’s a vital part of your fire safety strategy – and, as a building’s owner or manager, legislation puts the responsibility for compliance in your hands.

How does Passive Fire Protection Work?

See how it can provide protection in this example

Integrated Protection Strategy

Passive Fire Protection works in conjunction with Active Fire Protection (sprinklers, extinguishers etc) by separating your building into areas of manageable risk or ‘compartments’. These areas restrict the growth and spread of fire, so occupants can escape and firefighters are protected.

  • Limits the spread of fire, heat, and smoke by containing it
  • Protects escape routes and allows for escape time
  • Protects the building structure and assets, to enhance its sustainability

How We Can Help
