What is passive fire protection?
Passive fire protection measures achieve their intended purpose by raising the fire resistance of the structure to a specific level, minimising the speed with which flame, smoke and heat can travel through a building through effective compartmentalisation, and decrease the risk of fire-induced collapse or structural distortion. By slowing the travel of fire, firestopping measures allow greater control over evacuation, as well as greater periods of time for the attending emergency services to gain access, while by protecting the structural integrity of the building, intumescent coatings decrease the risk of fatal collapse as well as rebuild time and cost after the event.
As a specialist passive fire protection contractor, Pyrotect installs a range of measures that protects the lives of those using the building, as well as the assets held within it.
