- Passive Fire Protection is the primary measure integrated within the constructional fabric of a building to provide inherent fire safety and protection by responding against flame, heat and smoke to maintain the fundamental requirements of building compartmentation, structural stability, fire separation and safe means of escape.
- Passive Fire Protection measures achieve their intended purpose by raising the fire resistance of the structure, protecting the structure against the effects of fire, reducing fire spread through secondary ignition, limiting the movement of flame and smoke, and minimising the danger of induced collapse or structural distortion.
- Passive Fire Protection design, incorporating passive fire protection materials, systems and assemblies, serves by fire containment to protect life, safeguard the building structure, protect assets, maintain building serviceability after fire, minimise rebuild costs, and facilitate quick business recovery and continuity.
What is our focus?
At PFP Applicators our sole focus is passive fire protection design and installation. We believe from past experience in the UK and America, (highly regulated industries) that independent inspections are required to ensure that passive fire protection installation has been completed correctly. The same scrutiny should apply in New Zealand. All of the applications we install are documented, photographed, and databased so that the work can be identified, serviced and passed on Council, a new owner or a tenant of the building. we believe it is imperative that the installation is done right the first time to guarantee no holdups or delays to contractors or owners achieving code of compliance. The specialist fire protection products we use, are not mixed and matched and all safety and test data documentation recorded for each application.
