Developing robust passive fire protection strategies for businesses in Cambridge

Nearly 60% of fire deaths do not take place in the area of the fire’s origin. In our eyes, this means that having the right measures in place to slow the spread of smoke and fire in a building is just as important as taking steps to prevent it in the first place.

While your business premises may look fireproof to the naked eye, gaps in your walls, floors, and ceilings – particularly those created for services such as cabling and ductwork – can provide a fire with the fuel it needs to quickly travel from room to room. Fast moving fires and excessive smoke can block exit routes, making it much more difficult for your staff and visitors to get away from the blaze.

As specialist fire stopping contractors in Cambridge, we’re here to ensure you have a suitable passive fire protection strategy in place that stops the worst from happening. By installing a range of fire and smoke resistant materials that are designed to cushion your building’s structural elements from the heat and contain a blaze within a designated zone, we can ensure any damage to your building is minimised and lives are not placed in jeopardy.
