The core objectives of passive fire protection encompass two vital aspects: enhancing structural safety to facilitate effective evacuation and mitigating the potential risks associated with fire incidents.

    Fire Stopping

    Fire stopping involves sealing openings in a building to prevent the spread of fire, smoke, and heat. By creating fire-resistant compartments, both vertically and horizontally, the risk of fire spreading can be effectively contained. It is crucial for buildings to implement fully compliant fire stopping measures to minimise the risk and limit the potential damage caused by fire.

    Fire Stopping Regulations for Facilities Management Providers

    According to the 2020 amendments to the Building Regulations Act of 2010 on Fire Safety for Volume 1: Dwellings, buildings should prevent the spread of fire through internal linings while also meeting other requirements:


    • The premature collapse of the structure is avoided
    • 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


    In addition to the above, the document and its amendments specify the proper methods for installing fire stopping measures. Our team of experts can assist FM providers in this process to ensure maximum protection and compliance.
