    Fire partitioning is a crucial safety measure implemented during the construction of commercial properties in order to inhibit the rapid spread of fire. It entails the creation of internal walls and ceilings that confine the fire within a specific room or area of the building for a limited duration. This tactical approach enables occupants to swiftly locate escape routes while mitigating damage to the overall structure.
