Passive fire protection



The buildings, according to their use and surface, are divided into fire sectors. Each consists of a space demarcated by walls and ceilings of a certain fire resistance that prevent the spread of fire to other fire sectors.

These partitioning elements (walls and floorsare normally passed through via installation passages, so in order to prevent fire from spreading between fire sectors these passages must be sealedusing the partitioning elements.

The sealing of a facility’s fire compartments is the sealing of the gap between the compartments and the partitioning elements, whether horizontal or vertical. Conceptually they can be divided into:

  • Sealing of technical installations. Electrical cables, pipes, etc.
  • Sealing of linear joints. We differentiate between high, medium and low expansion joints.
