Experienced passive fire protection specialists in Essex

Invest in products that provide enhanced fire and smoke resistance, and you’ll be taking an active (and legally necessary) step towards better protecting your building and everyone in it.

As the person responsible for minimising the risk of fire at your premises in Chelmsford, you need to ensure all potential fire paths are effectively blocked to prevent fire and smoke from travelling quickly through the building and blocking occupants from escaping from the premises safely. You can do this by putting a robust fire stopping strategy in place.

Standard protection products such as detectors and sprinklers play a vital role in raising awareness of fires in commercial environments – but passive protection work focuses on the concept of preventing these scenarios, rather than reacting to them. Using heat and smoke resistant materials to contain a blaze within a designated zone will reduce the risk to the structural elements of your building, allow for faster evacuations, and, in more extreme cases, save lives.

How can we help?

Octopus Firestop can advise on all aspects of fire compartmentation for virtually any business in the Chelmsford area. Our specialists will identify any penetrations that need to be addressed and advise on the best way to fill them with suitable fire stopping materials.
