    Ark London Passive Fire Protection Services

    Browse our complete range of passive fire protection services available for our clients in London. The two most important goals of passive fire protection are to make a structure safer for evacuation and to stop a fire from becoming a danger to life. Fire usually spreads from one item to the next, which some PFP materials attempt to prevent, and then from room to room, which intumescent materials, amongst other methods, are used in an attempt to hinder the spread. The fundamental objective of PFP is always to limit or prevent the spread of fire.

    Fire Stopping

    Fire stopping can be defined as the sealing of any opening to prevent fire, smoke and heat from passing through building compartments. The spread of fire, smoke and heat can be contained by creating fire resistant compartments which segment a building both vertically and horizontally. It is essential that buildings implement fire stopping to restrict fire spread.

    Fire partitioning is a safety measure used during building construction to prevent the spread of fire. It involves creating internal walls and ceilings that contain the fire within a specific room or area of the building for a limited time. This allows occupants to find escape routes and minimises damage to the building as only a designated area is affected.

    • Adequate measures have been taken to ensure that there is enough distance between buildings and within buildings to prevent the spread of fire.
    • Wherever it is needed, automatic fire suppression is available.
    • The spread of fire and smoke in cavities is limited.
