Passive Fire Protection

Passive fire protection (PFP) is integral to structural fire protection in a building.

The objective of passive fire protection is to contain fires and slow the spread of flame and smoke. It is a vital component of any fire safety strategy and therefore, key to safeguarding people, as well as minimising damage to buildings and their contents from fire and smoke.

Passive fire protection forms part of the structure of a building separating areas by way of floors and walls this is called ‘compartmentation’ designed to create more time for safe evacuation or holding areas for occupants of the building whilst also offering protection to emergency services entering the building such as the fire service.

The materials used in the construction of the building will offer some level of fire rating and by adding passive fire protection products we can match or enhance this level of protection.  PFP products are used to reinstate a level of fire rating if a compartment is breached by services.

PFP products include:

  • Fire resisting walls and floors
  • Penetration seals for pipes and other services
  • Structural steel coating 
  • Fire shutters and curtains
  • Fire resisting ductwork
  • Fire doors and hardware
  • Cavity barriers
