Why Choose Ark Fire Protection?
Passive fire protection (PFP) is a system that is used to prevent the spread of fire. It’s usually made up of materials that are fire resistant, such as concrete, bricks, or metal. PFP can also include firestops, which are designed to block the passage of smoke and flames.
In many cases, PFP is used in conjunction with active fire protection (AFP), such as sprinklers, to provide an extra layer of defence against fires. While AFP systems are designed to extinguish fires, PFP is intended to slow the spread of fires and give individuals more time to evacuate. As a result, PFP plays an important role in keeping people safe during a fire.
