PASSIVE FIRE PROTECTION

Passive Fire Protection (PFP) is an integral component of the three components of structural fire protection and fire safety in a building. PFP attempts to contain fires or slow the spread, through use of Fire-Resistant doors, Fire retardant paint, Cable fire protection Etc.

Fire-Resistant doors

A fire door is a door with a fire-resistance rating (sometimes referred to as a fire protection rating for closures) used as part of a passive fire protection system to reduce the spread of fire and smoke between separate compartments of a structure and to enable safe egress from a building or structure or ship. In North American building codes, it along with fire dampers, is often referred to as a closure, which can be derated compared against the fire separation that contains it, provided that this barrier is not a firewall or an occupancy separation.

Fire doors may be made of a combination of materials, such as:

  1. Glass sections
  2. Gypsum (as an endothermic fill)
  3. Steel
  4. Timber
  5. Vermiculite-boards
  6. Aluminium
