The damage that can be done by a fire is incomprehensible. There is nothing that can ruin your business financially like a fire. Thus, it is of utmost importance that you avoid it at all costs.
While you’ll never be able to completely prevent a fire from occurring, there are some precautions you can take to minimise the possibility – active and passive fire protection.
What is active and passive fire protection?
Active Fire Protection
Fire protection systems that require action to work efficiently if a fire were to break out. An example of this is a fire extinguisher or a sprinkler. Should there be a fire detected, a smoke alarm will alert everyone inside the building put out the fire until firefighters arrive.
Passive Fire Protection
These are a group of systems that sectionalize a building with fire-resistance walls, floors and fire doors to keep the fire contained in a specific section. This will prevent the fire from spreading too quickly and provide employees with enough time to evacuate the building. Dampers may be used in ducts to limit the smoke or fire from spreading in the ductwork system.
