Passive fire protection (PFP)
Fire safety is top priority
If a building is on fire, people don’t have much time to escape. In fact, they can sometimes have just three minutes to escape before a flashover occurs. A flashover is a thermally driven event that rapidly and simultaneously ignites every combustible surface exposed to heat radiation in a compartment or enclosed space. However, even more lethal than the fire itself is the smoke that it brings. Far more people lose their lives due to smoke inhalation than severe burns.
As building get taller and more complicated, requirements for fire protection are also increasing. Active and passive fire protection systems are complementary in a building's fire safety management plan.
