    Ark’s Passive Fire Protection Services for the Education Sector

    Explore our range of passive fire protection services tailored for educational institutions throughout the United Kingdom. Our utmost priorities encompass two fundamental objectives: enhancing structural safety to facilitate swift evacuations and mitigating fire-related risks. Take a moment to delve into our service offerings outlined below.

    Fire Stopping

    Fire stopping is a critical process that involves sealing openings to prevent the passage of fire, smoke, and heat in different areas of a building. By creating fire-resistant compartments that divide the building both vertically and horizontally, the spread of fire can be effectively contained. It’s important to implement fully compliant fire stopping measures in buildings to minimise potential risks to students and confine the spread of fire.

    Fire partitioning is a safety measure used during the construction of education institutions 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 students and staff to find escape routes and minimises damage to the building as only a designated area is affected.
