Passive Fire Protection


Passive Fire Protection (PFP) is one of the most important parts in the construction of a building. The purpose of the PFP is to contain a fire and stop it spreading to other areas of the buildings. By constructing a building in this manner, we are creating areas of manageable risk, better known as fire compartments. These areas are designed to limit the growth and spread of fire allowing occupants to escape and offering protection for firefighters. Such protection is either provided by the materials from which the building is constructed, or is added to the building to enhance its fire resistance.

The are many different ways of keeping a compartment fire resistant, such as the following:-

  • Fire Rated Plasterboard
  • Fire Rated Doors including furniture
  • Fire Resistant Glazing
  • Fire Shutters
  • Fire Dampers
  • Linear Gap Seals
  • Penetrations Seals for Pipes, Cables etc
  • Suspended Ceilings
  • Fire Resistant Air Grilles
  • Fire Resistant Coatings
