What is Passive Fire Protection

As its name suggests, passive fire protection (PFP) is a form of fire safety provision that remains dormant, or inert, during normal conditions but becomes active in a fire situation.

It is an integral component of structural fire protection in a building, which is designed to contain fires or slow their spread. The purpose of PFP is to contain the spread of fire for sufficient time to permit:

  • the safe evacuation of all occupants of the premises
  • the arrival of the fire brigade.

The person responsible for fire safety also has a duty of care towards any members of the emergency services, e.g. firefighters, who may have to enter the premises during the course of fire; in slowing the spread of flames, smoke, and hot gases, PFP also serves to ensure the building remains as safe as possible for entry in this situation.

The main difference between passive and active fire protection is that our aim is to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading through doors, seals, or through the walls/ceilings, whereas active fire protection revolves around the detection, stopping and escape of fire, highlighting the use of fire doors and escape routes.
