Passive fire protection is playing an increasingly vital role in modern construction. Built into the fabric of a building, it provides inherent fire safety and protection by preventing the spread of flame, heat and smoke. Passive fire protection will maintain the fundamental requirements of a building`s structural stability, offering a safe means of evacuation out of a distressed building. Fire-resistant barriers and other systems provide occupants time to escape a fire and firefighters the chance to save the building.
Passive fire protection measures achieve their intended purpose by raising the fire resistance of the structure protecting the structure, reducing fire spread through secondary ignition, limiting the movement of flame and smoke, and minimizing the danger of fire-induced collapse or structural distortion.
Passive fire protection design serves to protect the building structure and assets, safeguard the building occupants, maintain building serviceability after fire, minimize rebuild costs, and facilitate quick business recovery and continuity.
