Passive fire protection in historical buildings

Historical buildings provide unique challenges when it comes to fire safety and many will not have traditional built in measures which all modern new-builds are required to have. While fires are less likely to happen in these types of building, they still occur and can be severely damaging. This was seen with the Notre Dame incident, illustrating the need for effective fire safety measures to be in place for historical buildings.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order requires historical buildings to meet new fire safety and related life safety standards. The owner of a historical building may be thinking where to begin with such a large project facing them. It will be important for them to get the balance right between getting the correct fire safety measures in place, and preserving the historical nature of the building.

Here at Surefire Passive we have over 25 years of experience working within historical buildings, making sure their fire safety measures are brought up to date with the latest standards and regulations. We will make sure that all essential passive fire protection equipment is in place, carry out a fire door survey, while ensuring no damage or alterations are made to a buildings fabric and d├ęcor,
