“The Purpose of Passive Fire Protection is to contain or slow the spread of fire and smoke allowing sufficient time for evacuation and emergency response.”

Fire Safety Legislation now requires that building owners take full responsibility for all aspects of fire safety within their premises. The responsible person within the premises is required as part of their Fire Risk Assessment process to ensure that the fire rating elements of the building structure meet current legislation. When a Fire starts, it is of paramount importance to stop the fire spreading to other parts of the building. A fire can spread in many ways, but the correct installation of fire stopping materials can prevent this.
