Passive fire protection is a core component of structural fire protection and fire safety in a building, it’s designed to contain fire or prevent the spread while protecting key structural elements and escape paths of the building through the use of fire-resistant barriers such as doors, wall and ceiling systems both fyrchek and masonry, fire windows, dampers, stopping and shutters etc.
Passive fire systems can not only limit damage to a single compartment but give occupants of the building time to escape and fire fighters time to put out the fire before it spreads to the rest of the building.
In Australia, passive fire protection systems must comply with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and maintenance logs kept as specified in Australian Standard AS1805, 2005.
Commercial, industrial and residential buildings – existing properties and new developments.
