Cable Duct Sealing is Key to Passive Fire Solutions
A passive fire solution doesn’t seek to stop a workplace blaze in its tracks, rather the goal is to contain the smoke and flames. This delivers two key benefits. First, it allows for an orderly evacuation from the building. Second, the structural integrity of the building is protected. Where buildings have passive fire protection installed, the recovery process, after a fire event, tends to be quicker, and less expensive.
Wallace Fire Protection designs passive fire protection systems for utilities, power generation, construction and high risk environments across the UK. Their solutions will normally incorporate a range of materials including:
- steelwork fire protection – intumescent paint
- walls, floors and ceilings fire protection – fire barriers
- critical plant and escape routes fire protection – fire and blast resistant panels
- cable ducts protection against water, gas and fire – sealing system
Our aim, when designing a passive fire protection system, is to provide clients with a designated time frame during which the fire will be contained, evacuation can take place, and the structural and plant integrity is maintained.
