A fire in your building is the stuff of nightmares and can be absolutely devastating. While you may have done everything you can to reduce the risk of a fire starting in your building, the next thing to do is to take steps to minimize the damage that would occur in the case of a fire. That’s where passive fire protection comes in and where JNR Fire Protection Specialists can help.
Passive fire protection is based on the compartmenting of fire and preventing building collapse through structural fire resistance. When properly installed and regularly checked, a passive fire protection system can save lives and assets, as well as the building itself.
Here at JNR we offer a wide range of fire-stopping solutions to ensure the safety of your building, which include:
- High-quality commercial fire doors that will hold back smoke and fire in the event of an emergency. These fire doors work by utilising intumescent strips on the inside of the doors and frames which will expand once heated to a certain temperature, this sealing the doors and helping to prevent the spread of fire through your building.
- The application of intumescent paint for the fire protection of structural steel. Similar to the strips used in fire doors, this paint will expand once heated to a certain temperature to create a layer of low thermal conductivity that will slow the damage caused by fire.
- Fire curtains will prevent the spread of fire and smoke through voids and also separate different areas within your building. These fire curtains are suitable for installation within lofts, ceiling voids, and risers and will ensure that no fire or smoke can spread from one area to another.
- Penetration sealing can be used to thoroughly compartmentalise a building and to restrict the spread of fire through voids and gaps created by systems such as pipes or ducts in masonry walls and floors.
Not only do we fit out these passive fire protection solutions to a high and industry-regulated standard but we also offer regular maintenance and inspection services as well.
