Comprehensive & Reliable Fire Protection 

At BusinessWatch, we don’t overlook the importance of passive fire protection. Although innovative alarms and advanced technology are beneficial for the safety and security of a site, the more traditional and passive means of protection are equally vital to protect assets and people.

What is Passive Fire Protection? 

Passive fire protection encompasses a range of structural and architectural measures designed to contain and slow the spread of fire, smoke, and toxic gases within a building. Unlike active fire protection systems that require manual or automatic activation, passive fire protection features are inherently built into the building’s design and construction with their primary goal to limit the extent of fire damage and provide occupants with more time to evacuate safely in the event of a fire. 

Examples of passive fire protection include: 

  • Fire-resistant walls & floors
  • Fire-resistant doors, frames and barriers
  • Compartmentation
  • Firestops & penetration seals
  • Fire & smoke dampers
  • Fireproof coatings & sprays 
  • Fire-rated window & door glazing

Do I Need Passive Fire Protection?

Passive fire protection is essential for safeguarding lives and property if you own or manage a building. Passive fire protection measures, as outlined above, are integral components of a comprehensive fire safety strategy. 

By containing and slowing the spread of fire, smoke, and toxic gases, passive fire protection provides crucial time for occupants to evacuate safely and for emergency responders to intervene effectively. Whether it’s a residential, commercial, or industrial building, investing in passive fire protection is a proactive step towards minimising fire risks and ensuring the safety of everyone within the premises.


Why Is It Important?

Passive fire protection is paramount for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of occupants and protecting property from the devastating effects of fire. By containing fires within specific areas and slowing their spread, passive fire protection measures provide valuable time for evacuation and emergency response efforts, therefore reducing the risk of injury and loss of life. 

In addition, passive fire protection strategies help to minimise property damage and business interruption and are an essential investment for creating a secure environment and promoting peace of mind for all stakeholders.
