P.R.B Estates

Passive fire protection (PFP), Unlike active fire protection products such as sprinkler systems, fire alarms, fire extinguishers, fire hoses etc. all of which become active in the event of fire, passive fire products, however, remain non-active. PFP attempts to contain fires or slow the spread, through use of fire-resistant walls, floors, and doors (amongst other examples). This is a fire rated barrier or room, usually with a specific time allocated to fire containment. It is designed to perform that exact task: contain the fire from spreading.

Often referred to as compartmentalisation, the idea is to divide a structure into "fire compartments", which may contain single or multiple rooms, for the purpose of limiting the spread of fire, smoke and flue gases, in order to enable the three goals of fire protection:

  • life safety
  • property protection
  • continuity of operations

There are various forms of penetrations, from door openings, windows, power points, switches, lighting, plumbing………….. this list goes on. All of these compromise the fire integrity of an area. These penetrations need to be filled with passive fire products, such as fire doors & glass both with suitable fire rated frames and hardware. Power points, lights, and switches are also required to be suitably fire rated. We at prb are specialists in providing compartmentation.

At PRB Estates we offer fire stopping works, this includes surveying to identify risks through to carrying out the necessary work to help protect from the risk of fire spreading. All our fire stopping is also labelled and registered for identification purposes.
