Passive Fire Protection
Passive fire protection, sometimes abbreviated to PFP, is the act of slowing down the spread of fire by containing it within certain areas of the building. At LW Safety, we work with businesses across Wembley, Harrow and Uxbridge as a passive fire protection contractor.
Passive fire protection, using walls, floors and doors, can compartmentalise areas of your building to trap a fire. This usually involves fire stopping methods, whereby gaps or penetrations from previous works have been left behind. Once these are eliminated, a fire will not be able to move as quickly through a building, thereby allowing people to evacuate safely – it also allows the fire brigade time to respond.
