Fire Solutions

Passive fire protection (PFP) is an integral component of the three components of structural fire protection and fire safety in a building. PFP attempts to contain fires or slow the spread, through use of fire-resistant walls, floors, and doors (amongst other examples). PFP systems must comply with the associated listing and approval use and compliance in order to provide the effectiveness expected by building codes

It includes compartmentalization of the overall building through the use of fire-resistance rated walls and floors. Organization into smaller fire compartments, consisting of one or more rooms or floors, prevents or slows the spread of fire from the room of fire origin to other building spaces, limiting building damage and providing more time to the building occupants for emergency evacuation or to reach an area of refuge.

Types of Passive Fire Protection

A mechanical type of material or piece of equipment can assist in the spread of fire or protect against direct flame. We at K J Plastering Ltd can specify and fix in place the many sources during or after the build. This may include the following:

  • Fire resistant plasterboard used during wall and ceiling construction or systems to enclose structural steel framework
  • Fire resistant ceiling tiles as part of the constructing of suspended ceilings
  • Firewool/firebreaks as an insulation and fire barrier when passing over the top of interior walls
  • Intumescant sealant is now specified as part of closing up edges around walls and ceilings and plugs/sockets when drylining to provide a sealed enclosure
  • Fire breaks in the form of cavity closers around the areas through which services may pass
  • Fire collars to vertical pipework which may pass through floors/ceilings

K J Plastering Ltd can provide the perfect solution and fit the ideal components to ensure you comply with building/fire regulations, in turn creating a safe environment and offering peace of mind
