EXPERTS IN PASSIVE FIRE PROTECTION

The price of saving lives, property, and assets is incalculable. Life safety should be your number one concern.

If the worst happens and a fire breaks out in your building, your due diligence will pay off when the fire is contained. Containment not only allows people time to evacuate, saving lives it also gives the fire service time to access your building minimising damage so you will be back up and running in a shorter timeframe. With our Firas accredited fire protection installers, and our duty of care you can have that peace of mind you’re looking for.

Most companies do not realise that they need fire protection and if they do, they don’t know where they can get it.  

Broadsword Fire Protection LTD can make sure that your building is protected from fire, we can also retrospectively assist with existing buildings.
Building regulations outline the need for large buildings to be divided into compartments and specifies the level of fire performance the compartment walls and floors need to achieve in order to preserve both building structure and life through fire and smoke containment.

In most buildings, mechanical and electrical services by necessity breach compartment walls and floors allowing failure of integrity and insulation to occur where gaps around services have not been adequately fire stopped. The use of correctly installed certified fire stopping systems will contain a fire at its source and limit the risk of the destruction caused by the spread of fire and the release of toxic gasses.

Passive Fire Protection Specialists

Passive fire protection (PFP) is an integral component of structural fire protection and fire safety in a building – to either contain the fire or slow the spread.  Passive fire protection works in conjunction with active fire prevention, such as sprinkler systems and extinguishers, and fire safety education of building occupants, it is hidden in the fabric of the building. Compartmentalisation means that buildings are divided into sections to prevent the spread of smoke and fire, allow for escape and access for the Fire Service.

PFP may be part of the fabric of a building or added after it is constructed. PFP products should be fit for purpose and properly maintained. They must have been tested, assessed, and certified by third party certification, to independently verify the competency and quality of the workmanship of companies manufacturing, installing, and maintaining them.
