Passive Fire Protection
Passive fire protection (PFP) is one branch of a three-pronged approach in structural fire protection within a building. PFP addresses the need of containing a fire or slowing its spread through the use of fire-resistant walls, floors, and doors. For example, we use fire-resistant materials such as structural steel. These systems must all comply with the rules of the building codes pertaining to the property’s specific location.
The goal of PFP is to compartmentalize the building into different zones, separated by barriers such as firewalls or fire partitions so that in the event of a fire, it can be contained to the room or area of origin. The goal is to maintain the integrity of the outer wall and prevent or limit damage to other areas of the building.
Building Fire Exit Safety Considerations
Fire protection must also take into account other important factors in a commercial building:
An unobstructed egress system is critical to fire protection and must include three items: exit access, the exit, and exit discharge.
These must also adhere to strict building codes. For instance, an exitway must be large enough to accommodate the number of people that will be using it in an emergency. It needs to be within a certain distance from where people will be evacuating from and must also be constructed in such a way that offers protection during the evacuation process.
