Fire Barriers

Fire barriers are an essential element of passive fire protection and are needed to help prevent the spread of a fire within a building. They are placed in hidden areas of a building and protect against fire and smoke. Having the right fire barriers in the right places, such as walls, floors and ceilings can reduce the rate of a fire spreading, allowing precious time for a safe evacuation to take place. 

Compartmentalising a building can help limit the spread of smoke and fire by restricting it to the area it breaks out in. The rapid spread of fire poses a great risk to life and damage to a building. There are a lot of different fire barriers available, including:

Modular Fire Barriers: These systems are usually installed in outdoor structures and are used to separate transformers so that if one fails, it does not spread to the others, minimising collateral damage. 

Firewalls: The main purpose of a firewall is to slow down the spread of fire and smoke. They are integral for subdividing a building by acting as a barrier between rooms. 

Fire Partitions: These are walls inside a building which extend from the ceiling to the floor and offer fire protection for a period of one to two hours.
