    Fire partitioning is an essential safety precaution implemented during the construction of healthcare facilities to prevent the rapid spread of fire. It involves constructing internal walls and ceilings that contain the fire within a specific room or area of the building for a limited period. This strategic approach allows occupants to quickly identify escape routes while minimising damage to the overall structure.
