fire engineers and passive fire protection
Fire safety engineers have a pivotal role to play in ensuring a building is safeguarded effectively against the threat of a fire. It is their task to analyse the potential risks, and to design and implement protective fire safety systems. They have to ensure the passive fire protection equipment used within a building will prevent the rapid spreading of a fire and protect the people inside.
A professional fire safety engineer will:
- Design buildings with fire safety in mind
- Design equipment used to prevent fire from spreading
- Inspect older buildings and structures for potential hazards
- Make recommendations for passive fire safety systems
- Keep up to date with new fire regulations and laws, including Approved Document B
- Inspect current passive protection a building already has in place
When it comes to passive fire protection of a building, fire engineers will analyse relevant documentation, and thoroughly inspect current systems in place, ensuring they will be effective in the event of a fire. It is a demanding and important role, and any mistakes can lead to a building not being as secure as it should be.
This is why at Surefire Passive our qualified engineers are always willing and able to work alongside other fire safety engineers when it comes to the passive fire protection of a building. This collaboration means no stone will be left unturned, including the use of fire-resistant construction materials and the installation of fire-rated doors.
