Passive Fire Protection is of crucial importance within the NHS Sector. With new patients checking in every day, effective fire safety strategies need to be in place.
Some of the most required Passive Fire Protection services for NHS are:
Fire Rated Door Sets
Fire rated Door Sets are an important component of passive fire protection. Effective fire rated door sets prevent the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases. Our Ecoframe Composite Fire Door Sets are built to order and aim to increase the level of fire protection within set premises
The aim of Compartmentation is to limit the rapid spread of fire. By dividing building premises into discrete fire zones also referred to as “fire compartments”, fire is fought by forming a barrier against smoke, heat and toxic gases. Fire Compartmentation is designed to contain the fire in the area that it started, providing a good fire protection starting point for the building and its occupants regardless of other fire prevention systems. Fire Compartmentation is the most effective mean of limiting fire damage before the fire brigade arrives. The benefits of compartmentation are:
- limiting fire damage
- allowing further fire prevention systems to be installed
- increased fire protection for a limited period of time
Fire Rated Ceilings
Fire rated ceilings are another important component of passive fire protection. Fire rated ceilings provide fire protection to buildings, ensuring that in the event of a fire, the ceiling can block fire spread for certain amounts of time.
Fire Rated Walls
Fire rated walls, just like fire rated ceilings play an important role within efficient passive fire protection for the Hospitality industry. Fire rated walls are designed to provide 30-120 minutes fire stopping.
Global HSE Solutions will ensure that your building benefits of an adequate passive fire protection system. Fire Rated Walls will always strengthen an existing passive fire protection system and will make the premises safer.
Global HSE Solutions is providing bespoke services to all clients, after carefully investigating and understanding building requirements.
