Passive fire protection
Setting the bar. A new competence regime for building a safer future. The Final Report of the Competence Steering Group for Building a Safer Future, published in October 2020, suggests that: ‘Passive fire protection is built into the structure to provide stability and into walls and floors to separate the building into areas of manageable risk – compartments. These areas are designed to restrict the growth and spread of fire allowing occupants to escape and offering protection for firefighters.’
Firestopping of service penetrations, Best practice in design and installation, published by FIS (Finishes and Interiors Sector) in 2020, defines passive fire protection as: ‘A product or system that provides protection to the building and occupants without further change or requirement for activation or motion, for example fire resistant drylining.’
