    Fire partitioning is a critical safety measure implemented during residential construction projects to effectively limit the spread of fire. This involves installing 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 enables occupants to locate escape routes and minimises damage to the building, as only designated areas are affected.
