Complete approach explained

To effectively protect a building against the dangers posed by fire you need to have three components in place:

  1. Active Fire Protection (AFP)
  2. Passive Fire Protection (PFP)
  3. Fire Safety Management System (FSM)

The difference between AFP and PFP is that AFP is there to put the fire out and PFP is there to control and contain the spread of fire and smoke.

An effective combination of these systems will reduce the risk to life and minimise the extent of fire damage.

With Global, you have one point of contact and complete confidence that you are in the hands of the best in the business.

Global are the leading company in the country to offer AFP, PFP and FSM without outsourcing.

Diagram outlining our complete approach

1AFP usually needs some form of action to get it working.  This may be manual – a fire extinguisher for example – or automatic detectors (AD).

  • Automatic Fire Detection
  • Kitchen Canopy Fire Protection
  • Emergency Lighting
  • Portable Fire Extinguishers
  • Dry Risers & Sprinklers
  • Security Systems
  • Gaseous Fire Protection
  • Air Integrity
  • Access Control
  • Voice Alarm
  • Public Address Systems
  • Disabled Refuge Comms
  • Ansul Systems

3FSM is a system of training and assessments put in place to ensure that there are a clear set of procedures to follow in the event of a fire.

  • Fire Safety Engineering
  • Fire Strategies
  • Fire Risk Assessment
  • Fire Survey &Audits
  • Global Compliance
  • Health Check
  • Live Fire Training

2PFP is part of the structure of the building and its function is not only to restrict the fire’s progress, but also protect the integrity and stability of the building. Examples would be fire-resistant walls, doors and floors.
