PASSIVE fire protection products are the primary materials included in the construction of a building. By correctly applying these products, the fundamental and legal requirements of compartmentalisation can be met.
Additionally, they contribute to the structural stability of a building and provide time to safely evacuate or clear it. Passive fire protection limits the spread of flames and smoke, which also limits the transfer and spreading of fire between fire compartments.
That’s according to Den Braven, a developer and manufacturers of sealants, adhesives and PU expansion foams, which offers FireProtect, a complete range of fully certified and approved passive fire products, for application in expansion and connection joints, openings and surface penetrations, between fire compartments.
The range consists of an FP Acrylic sealant, FP Silicone sealant, FP Hybrid sealant and FP PU foam filler. According to the company, each of these specialised products can have fire retardancy of up to four hours and international fire certifications.
