Fire Compartmentation

Fire Compartmentation is an important part of the passive fire protection within the overall fire safety system of a building.

Fire Compartmentation

Dividing Elements

Compartmentation is achieved by dividing the premises into ‘fire compartments’ through the use of fire doors, floors and walls of fire-resisting construction, cavity barriers within roof voids and fire stopping to services that penetrate through these dividing elements.


The Critical Role of Compartmentation

Fire resisting partitions and fire doors which form the compartmentation of a building play a critical safety role and the correct type of product should be specified. Furthermore, it should be properly installed – by competent persons able to fully understand the importance of correct installation of the product in the context of fire safety.


Containing Fire

Fire rated board systems are designed to contain fire within a compartment of a building by acting as a barrier to stop the spread of heat, smoke, fire and gases.
