What is Passive Fire Protection Installation?
Passive fire protection installation is mandatory in almost all buildings in England, as per the Fire Safety Order 2005. Most types of passive fire protection exist at a structural level of a building, meaning many people aren’t aware of their responsibilities to install and maintain it.
Its purpose is to slow or halt the spread of flames and smoke in the event of a fire, saving lives and protecting property.
What’s involved with passive fire protection installation depends on whether the building is at the design/construction phase or if it’s already built and existing measures need reviewing.

The Importance of an Effective Passive Fire Protection System
Aside from being a legal requirement, an effective passive fire protection system saves lives, reduces the risk of damage to a property and minimises financial loss. Following the Grenfell tragedy and Dame Judith Hackitt’s review, new regulations are being brought in to ensure both residential and commercial buildings are safe for those who occupy them.
Installation at the Design Phase
For construction projects, the design phase is the perfect time to get your passive fire systems right, saving costly and time-consuming changes further down the line. Our installation services are carried out to the highest standards ensuring compliance with all the latest building regulations.
All work is digitally recorded to provide an accurate record along with the essential golden thread of information.
Installation in Existing Buildings
For existing buildings, we can survey the current measures and produce a report of findings and recommendations. If breaches or areas of non-compliance are identified with your current passive fire protection system, or if no safety measures have been installed at all, it’s essential to rectify this immediately.
Our exceptional attention to detail guarantees a solution for a passive fire protection system within any project.Contact Us
