Fire Barrier System
Compartmentalising of a building is a fire protection method used to prevent the spread of fire and smoke. By restricting the danger to one area of a building for as long as possible, it gives the occupants of a building the chance to evacuate safely and without panic.
To help prevent the spread of smoke and a fire, a fire barrier system should be used. Fire barriers help to protect the safety of a buildings occupants as well as valuable equipment and the infrastructure. Fires are extremely dangerous and can spread rapidly if the correct fire safety foundations are not in place. Taking valuable protection measures against the dangers of a fire is vital.
Fire barrier systems are placed within the walls, floors and ceilings of a building to reduce the rate of a fire spreading. For example, modular fire barriers are installed to separate transformers, while firewalls act as a barrier between rooms.
Each barrier system is designed for a specific purpose and should be installed correctly and in the right place. At Surefire Passive we are able to conduct the safe installation of fire barriers and will carry out a full risk assessment to determine which type of barrier is required.
As well as this our teams carry out regular maintenance work to ensure your fire barrier system is working efficiently. To find out more information about how we can help you contact us now.
