Passive Protection are those materials used in the building construction, which, although they are not visible to the naked eye, provide the building with structural protection and resistance against fire, preventing its collapse and preventing the spread of the fire to other places within the building or nearby buildings. Different international regulations require the protection of structures in industrial establishments.
There are different methods to achieve the structures passive protection, depending on the object or are to be protected:
1. Structure protection
2. Penetration sealing
A false ceiling is a second layer of roof suspended from the main roof with the help of metal or wooden frame. It is also known as dropped ceiling. They are usually built using prefabricated pieces, normally made of aluminum, steel or pvc.
The exterior sandwich walls are hung in front of the facade as if they were curtains, and
the interior walls and slabs are installed. The elements that are usually at the height of the floor are successively coupled and are connected and sealed together to avoid wind and humidity.
When it comes in contact with fire, the coating swells, expands and carbonizes, forming an
insulating barrier that protects the structure. With the aim of reducing fire damage.
Sealing system for the passage of plastic pipes (PVC) through fire compartment (walls and floors). It consists of a continuous band, which is cut to the pipes measure, and fixed with their own systems.
A pillow based fire sealing system, consist of vermiculite, a high thermal stable filler, and intumescent materials, that are perfectly packed with fireproofing fabrics.
These doors are made of resistant materials such as metal, wood or glass. They prevent the spread of fire, isolating the fire. Which allows a quick
evacuation of the place.
Fire doors are classified by their fire resistance rating (FRR). This is determined by the resistance time to medium temperature in the thermal isolation tests. They are classified in:
• FRR - 1 HOUR • FRR - 1.5 HOURS • FRR - 2 HOURS • FRR - 3 HOURS
We comply with national and international regulations.
• NFPA • NSR 10 • Regulations UNF
