    Fire partitioning is a crucial safety measure implemented during new construction projects to effectively curb the spread of fire. This involves the installation of internal walls and ceilings that confine the fire within specific areas or rooms of the building for a limited period. By containing the fire, this approach allows occupants to locate escape routes and mitigates damage to the building, as only designated areas are affected.

    • 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


    The document and its amendments outline the appropriate procedures for implementing fire stopping measures. Our team of specialists can provide valuable assistance throughout this process to guarantee optimal protection for your project.
