Fire Barrier Systems
Compartmentalisation of buildings can dramatically reduce the spread of fire from one section to another. Flexibility is the key to ensure that every large or small opening is protected. Envirograf fire barrier systems can be used both vertically and horizontally and they are very simple to fit, the barrier is also available in a motorised version that can be set to descend once the fire alarm is activated and this product will offer a simple escape route and superb fire and smoke protection or smoke protection only.
Electrical Fire Protection
Electrical fittings are notorious for the risk of a fire, and without fire protective gaskets these units are an accident waiting to happen. Electrical fire protection is vital because each socket or switch has interconnecting cabling which intensifies the risk of a fire spreading to other sections of the building. If recessed light fittings are used without fire protective covers, the fittings will fall out of a ceiling in under 4 minutes in a fire, which will leave upper floors vulnerable and at tremendous risk.
Passive Fire Protection Products
Airport plumbing and electrical services require a large amount of pipe work and cables to run an efficient operation. All of these services will pass through fire walls and must therefore be protected with passive fire protection products. Fire protective pillows and pads are available for small openings in cable trays, trunking and ducting together with fire protective slabs for larger openings. Ventilation units, heating and air conditioning areas are crucial to contain and reduce the spread of flames and smoke.
