Tips To Ensure That You Have A  Reliable Passive Fire Protection Plan


Passive fire protection (PFP) is a very important part of any type of any fire safety plan. It plays a very significant role in keeping people safe as well as limiting the kind of damage which would be caused to the contents and buildings from all the smoke and fire.Here are some ways PFP works:

Passive fire protection works by:

  • It limits the fire from spreading as well as the smoke and heat from reaching out beyond the original compartment of its origin.
  • It protects the escape routes and gives people vital time to escape.
  • It helps in protecting a building’s structural integrity as well as its assets.

Active fire protection system and passive fire protection system

The passive fire protection works well with active fire prevention like extinguishers and sprinkler systems places in the building. The choice of putting in a passive or active fire system or even a combo of the two is influenced by a lot of things like the type of fire which can break out, the size of the building, the size of the fire, duration the protection is needed for, water availability and more as such.

Tips to keep in mind while installing PFP systems

Even though the type and kind of fire can vary, but there are some tips you should keep in mind when tackling PFP:

  • Employ a certified company: Know that since PFP is done by a bunch of contractors who have some share of responsibility, so there isn’t just one person or even one company who oversees this installation. This can very well lead to a lot of faults within the fire safety systems. This, in turn, can expose the building as well as the people who are living within it to life safety risks. So always employ certified companies who can take control of the installations of the whole building.


  • Plan ahead: Many think of passive fire safety as a construction afterthought. This results in a much costlier retrofit of the whole thing. As such it’s much more time, effort and money saving to have the contractor draw out the plans to the fire safety strategy well before construction even begins. This would minimize the penetrations needed to install the passive fire protection methods too.


  • Check the accreditations: Know that fire stopping is a skill which will surely end up saving lives, but if it’s done by amateurs or unprofessional then it can put lives at risk. As such, don’t place the life of your building occupants in the hands of just anyone. Check the credentials of the company you are employing to install your fire safety strategies.


  • Choose quality: Many times the lower cost is chosen over good quality products. This might result in the purchase of products which might not even suit the needs of the hour. So you must always buy the products which you need instead of purchasing lower quality goods at a lower cost. After all, people’s lives depend on it.

So, Passive Fire Protection is a matter which should be taken seriously and nothing should compromise the materials and plans needed to get it done.
