What are fire protection services?
Fire protection services represent passive and active fire protection. Both of them are used together for the protection of buildings, ships, or facilities. Services providers will either help with the setup of structures, components, and systems, or sell them, but in most cases they offer both.
Passive fire protection and active fire protection
Passive fire protection or PFP consists of the way the structure of the whole building is designed. Usually these are fire structures put into smaller fire parts found at one or a few locations in the building which help in stopping the fire from spreading faster from its origin. It also provides extra time for evacuation in case of emergency. Some of the unmissable parts of PFP structures are firestops, intumescent, endothermic, firestop pillow, fireproofing, fire rated doors in for Sydney businesses, and fire-resistance rating. In some cases, the structures are put into walls or floors to make them fire resistant.
On the other side, active fire protection or AFP includes all components and systems that work only when there is a required amount of shifting around them, which is different from passive fire protection. Said components and systems can be divided into fire alarms, fire alarm systems, fire alarm control panels, fire detection, fire sprinklers, sprinkler systems, external water spray systems, and smoke alarms.
