Professional Fire Protection Services

Building owners and managers are required by Fire Safety Legislation to assume responsibility for fire safety on their premises. This includes carrying out regular risk assessments on both active and passive fire protection installed within the building. Active fire protection includes fire extinguishers and sprinkler systems (requiring active intervention for use), whilst passive fire protection will be integrated into the structure of the building.

The function of passive fire protection is to contain and manage the spread of fire, smoke or toxic fumes in order to allow for an orderly evacuation of the building, and the arrival of emergency services. The design and installation of passive fire protection materials requires specialist contractors with a proven track record in the field. This is because all premises offer specific challenges which need to be factored into effective fire protection.
