Fire’s destructive force is undeniable and finding ways to keep buildings and their occupants safe from its spread as well as containment, should be an essential focus of modern-day construction and design.
Den Braven’s internationally rated Fire Protect® is one way in which buildings can be safeguarded from fires. The Fire Protect® range, which is available as a silicone, acrylic or hybrid sealant as well as expansion foam, is applied to joints and gaps such as window frames, doors, cornices and linear joints to form a protective barrier in case of a fire.
The range of Fire Protect® products create compartments and passive fire protection, which is essential for fire containment, and of vital importance to enable safe evacuation and for the arrival of emergency services to bring a blaze under control. Fire resistance is the time, expressed in minutes, in which a burning compartment can successfully fulfil its role and thus contribute in preventing the fire from spreading.

The Pearl of Umhlanga in KwaZulu-Natal, Castle Rock Apartments in Cape Town, Balwin Properties Crystal Lagoon Resort and The Blyde in Pretoria are a few of the high-profile projects that researched this concept, and have used the Den Braven Fire Protect® range during construction and the finishing phases.
