What is Passive Fire Protection
Passive fire protection is a phrase which refers to materials which are built onto structures to slow down or stop fire from spreading. The purpose of which is mainly to give as much time as possible to enable evacuation of the building to get people to safety and also to save as much as the property as possible by stopping the fire taking hold.
This can be done in many ways using many kinds of products, obviously depending on what building materials you are using or protecting.
There are a wide range of materials called intumescents, these increase in size when subjected to heat and can exert enough pressure to crush a plastic pipe during a fire to close the pipe completely and stop and fire and smoke traveling through the pipe to another room or level. The same intumescent material can be used as a thin strip around the edges of doors and windows, around letter boxes and hinges etc, to provide fire and smoke seals in fire rated doors. There are many products that have been tested together and care should be taken to make sure the correct products are used in the right locations to provide full protection. Using the wrong materials can cost lives!
When you think about it, smoke and fire can penetrate the smallest of gaps and as we all know smoke can kill in a very short amount of time, buying time is what passive fire protection is all about, making sure all gaps will be sealed correctly in the event of a fire is simple, but takes some thought.
