Fire Control Systems
Fires can cause a lot of damage to a domestic or commercial property. Homes and businesses can be destroyed, making it essential that they are protected through the use of fire control systems.
Passive fire protection is a group of systems which work together to compartmentalise a building to ensure that a fire does not spread rapidly throughout a building. Through the installation of fire doors, dampers and smoke extracts, a fire can be contained to one area of building, making it easier to extinguish and for the safe evacuation of any occupants to take place.
There are different passive fire control systems which are used to compartmentalise a building. These include:
Fire bags and pillows: Fire bags and pillows are placed within the walls and ceilings of a building to prevent the passage of a fire and protect valuable cables.
Fire barriers: Fire barriers are a crucial element to any passive fire protection plan. These fire control systems are located in hidden areas of a building and protect against fire and smoke.
Smoke doors: Smoke doors are needed in construction under many different building codes in order to provide a safe environment. They help prevent the dangerous spreading of smoke from happening.
