What is passive fire protection?

Passive fire protection is built into the existing structure of a building and must be part of a fire safety strategy. Having the correct systems in place to suppress a fire into a single area will help keep escape routes safe and open for evacuation. 

By doing this and safeguarding a building’s structure, the lives of staff and visitors can be protected and the financial damage caused by a fire restricted. Ensuring a building’s sustainability and safety will ensure a business can recover quickly if a fire does occur. 

This protection takes place through the installation and use of:

  • Fire doors: Fire doors are designed to maintain the fire compartment lines within a building, reducing the spread of flame and smoke throughout a building, whilst allowing for safe means of escape.
  • Fire dampers: Fire dampers are installed into heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) ducts to prevent the spread of fire within the ductwork through fire-resistance rated walls and floors.
  • Smoke extracts: Smoke extracts aid the survivability and evacuation of occupants by controlling and venting smoke from escape routes.
