    Ark’s Passive Fire Protection Services for Student Accommodation

    Discover our extensive selection of passive fire protection services designed for student accommodations across the United Kingdom. Our top priorities revolve around two key objectives: enhancing structural safety to facilitate efficient evacuations and minimising the risks associated with fire incidents. Take a moment to explore our comprehensive service offerings outlined below.

    Fire Stopping

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

    Fire partitioning is a safety measure used during the construction of student accommodation 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.
