What Is Passive Fire Protection?
When it comes to accidents that could destroy your business, a fire is perhaps one of the most deadly because it can take lives very easily and also wipe all of your data and hardware, making your business effectively redundant. In many cases, simply reacting to the fire isn’t enough to stop it from spreading quickly and destroying your office so it’s important to have a pre-emptive method of protecting yourself from fires in your office or business. That’s where passive fire protection comes in handy. Passive fire protection is often used to describe a number of different strategies and products that are used to passively help you deal with fires. For instance, it could mean some kind of product that is installed into the structure of your building when it’s first built or it could mean a product you retrofit such as a fire collar around certain cables and pipes that are newly installed. In this article, we’re going to talk about passive fire protection and learn why it’s such an important component of your building or office.
