Commercial Fire Protection.

Commercial Fire Protection.

Fire protection is extremely important in any commercial setting, as a fire can quickly spread and cause extensive damage. There are a variety of fire protection measures that can be employed in a commercial setting, including the installation of sprinklers, fire alarms, and extinguishers.

But, perhaps an often overlooked element in preventing flames from ravaging commercial buildings is the installation of passive fire protection (PFP) measures. These are features of the building itself that help to prevent the spread of fire and can include things like fire doors, partitions, and flooring. By combining fire-stopping utilities like sprinkler systems and fire extinguishers with passive fire protection, you can give your commercial premises complete fire protection and enhanced fire resistance.

When it comes to commercial fire protection and general fire safety, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. By taking measures to prevent fires from starting in the first place, and by having systems in place to contain them should they break out, businesses can minimise the risk of damage and disruption.

Commercial buildings are at a higher risk of fire because of the many people and objects present. In addition, many commercial buildings are equipped with large amounts of electrical equipment, which can be a major fire hazard. That's why it's so important for businesses to have comprehensive fire protection plans in place.

Fire encasement systems.

A fire encasement system is a type of passive fire protection that works by completely encasing a structural element in fire-resistant materials. This encasement creates a barrier that prevents fire from spreading through the building.

Fire encasement systems are typically used on things like steel beams and columns, as well as concrete floor slabs. By encasing these elements in fire-resistant materials (such as intumescent coatings), it's possible to significantly slow down the spread of fire. In some cases, the fire will be contained entirely within the compartment created by the encasement system.

Fire rated partitions.

Fire-rated partition walls can also be used to create barriers between a fire and the rest of the building. Our fire-rated partitions are made of materials like drywall or plasterboard, and are installed so that they extend from the floor to the ceiling.

When properly installed, fire-rated partitions can help to compartmentalise a building and prevent the spread of fire. Partition wall installation can also be used to create safer exit routes in the event of a fire.

Fire-rated suspended ceiling.

A fire-rated suspended ceiling is another type of PFP that can be used to create compartments within a building. These ceilings are made of materials like metal or gypsum, and they're designed to stop the spread of fire by creating a barrier between the floor and the ceiling.

A suspended ceiling can be installed in:

  • Offices
  • Warehouses
  • Hospitals
  • Schools
Fire doors

Fire doors are one of the most important elements of passive fire protection. They are designed to create a barrier between a fire and the rest of the building and can help to prevent the spread of smoke and flames. When kept closed, these doors minimise the spread of fire to a large degree, compartmentalising the flames to one area and vastly reducing the damage inflicted.
