Passive Fire Protection (101)

Passive Fire Protection (PFP) is an indispensible element of structural fire safety. As the name suggests, this safety mechanism remains inert during normal conditions and becomes active only on the outbreak of a fire. It aims at containing the fire to its point of origin, so as to prevent the spread of flames and smoke for a limited period. This is achieved by compartmentalizing a building with the use of fire doors, fire walls/floor, and fire/smoke dampers among others. Another benefit of PFP is that it protects the structural integrity of the building and considerably limits the chances of collapse.

Passive Fire Protection can be broadly classified into two categories namely intumescent fire protection and vermiculite fire protection. In case of intumescent fire protection, it involves application of a layer of paint as an intermediate coat on the structural steel members. On the other hand in vermiculite fire proofing, the norm is to cover the structural components with vermiculite materials. Passive Fire Protection thus is an effective mechanism for retarding the spread of fire in all types of buildings and thus minimizes losses incurred.
