Passive Fire Protection

Passive Fire Protection

FIRAS logoPassive fire protection is an essential component of any fire safety strategy. It is built into the structure of a building to safeguard people’s lives and reduce the financial impact that such damage can have upon buildings and their contents.

This is achieved by :

  • Limiting the spread of smoke and fire through compartmentation
  • Protecting access/egress for means of escape
  • Protecting the structure of a building through fire-resistant components

The Critical Role of Passive Fire Protection

Fire resistant partitions act as a barrier to stop the spread of fire and smoke by containing it with an area. The components used within a building’s compartmentation need to be competent. JFN fully understands the importance of having qualified engineers to carry out all compartmentation works to provide the highest quality service and results. Our certified works will improve the safety of the built environment and protect the lives of people within.

Walls, Floors and Ceilings

Fire barriers include fire-rated walls, floors and ceilings. These barriers are used to limit the spread of fire and smoke to maintain safe egress from a building. walls extend from the floor to the ceiling above and continue into concealed spaces for full protection.
