Fires affect thousands of facilities each year resulting in injury and building damage. Fire is a serious threat to the safety and security of any building. The primary goal of fire safety efforts should be to prevent loss of life and property damage by installing & maintaining reliable fire safety equipment.
Of a building’s safety plan, a fire protection system is an important component regardless of whether it’s a commercial facility, hospital or educational facility. Without a fire protection system, the lives of those who are inside the building are placed at high risk in the event of an emergency. Because of that, active and passive fire protection systems have been designed to help protect the building and its occupants during a fire. In passive fire protection, systems that do not require any motion or action in order to work are used. Fire and Smoke Dampers prevent the spread of flames and smoke through the ductwork of a facility. Fire Walls/Barriers as well as Fire Doors, if kept shut, help contain the fire to one specific location of the building. These systems ultimately compartmentalize a building into sections to help contain and slow the spread of the fire and smoke, while helping to guide occupants safely out of danger. But to ensure that a building and everyone inside will be completely protected, it needs to have both passive and active fire protection systems.
Active Fire Protection uses systems which do require a certain amount of motion or action in order to work properly. These systems use some amount of actions to notify the fire and smoke conditions, help slow the growth of the fire or to help put out the fire altogether.
