Prestige Fire Safety provides a range of passive fire protection services, including fire compartmentation, firestopping, and fireproofing. Passive fire protection systems are designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke in buildings, and they are essential for building safety.
Fire compartmentation is the process of dividing a building into smaller, fire-resistant areas to prevent the spread of fire and smoke. This involves installing suitable fire-resistant barriers such as walls and floors, and ensuring that all openings such as doors and windows are also fitted with fire-resistant materials. Firestopping is the process of sealing any gaps or openings in these barriers, to prevent the spread of flames and smoke. This can be achieved through the use of materials such as intumescent seals, which expand when exposed to heat to fill any gaps and prevent the spread of fire.
Fireproofing involves applying fire-resistant coatings or products to building elements such as steel structures, walls, and floors. This helps to prevent these elements from becoming too hot and ultimately failing during a fire, which can cause the building to collapse and increase the risk of injury or loss of life.
Passive fire protection is a critical component of building safety, as it enables the occupants of a building to evacuate safely during a fire, and allows firefighters to safely enter the building to extinguish the fire and carry out rescue operations. Without adequate passive fire protection measures in place, a fire can quickly spread through a building, causing extensive damage and putting lives at risk.
