Fire Protection Explained
Fire protection helps protect a building against fire damage resulting from accidents, natural disasters or other unforeseen circumstances. It involves the installation of fire detection and suppression devices and systems for managing the threat or impact of fires within a building.
When a fire breaks out, it’s called an active fire protection service. When it is prevented or minimised, this is known as passive fire protection. In some cases, both of these services are combined to create the most comprehensive possible passive fire protection systems.
Whether you need active or passive fire protection, it’s important to work with a qualified company that understands your needs and install the proper systems. These measures can help minimise or prevent a blaze from becoming a major problem that affects a building’s structural integrity and the safety of any people inside.
Our Fire Protection Services
Installing fire doors helps contain a blaze within the room it has originated in, making it easier for firefighters to handle.
Fire compartmentation involves identifying rooms that need special passive fire protection, then creating a barrier. This helps contain a fire within the room it has originated in and prevents it from spreading to other parts of the building.
Intumescent paint is a type of fire-resistant material that expands when exposed to heat. It forms a protective layer over items such as beams, pipes and metal studs within a building, shielding them from damage.
Cavity barriers are similar to fire compartmentation, but they block the gaps around doors and windows within a building. This helps prevent flames from spreading from room to room.
Fire stopping involves the creation of temporary or permanent fire barriers that stop the fire from spreading. This includes sealing holes within walls and floors and gaps around pipes, cables, and other materials running through a building.
Fire boarding is a form of fireproofing that involves installing boards made from mineral wool. These hard-wearing panels can stand up to heat and pressure, helping them provide the ultimate passive fire protection.
Fire-rated soffits are designed to help protect areas around skylights and other types of roof access. Insulated soffits are specifically created to provide insulation, keeping the building environment within tolerable limits for both people and equipment.
We provide insulation details to seal open spaces within a building effectively. This creates an efficient fire barrier, minimising the risk of flames reaching areas they shouldn’t.
Acoustic sealing ensures all of the gaps and spaces within a building are sealed to create an effective barrier against the spread of fire. Unchecked airflow can help flames spread quickly, making acoustic sealing vital for fire protection.
Airtight rooms or buildings that manage airflow and intake vents before, during and after a fire can help prevent flames from spreading. We assess airtight integrity as part of our service to ensure the space in your building is as safe as possible.
