Passive fire protection could save a building, and even more importantly, can mean the difference between life and death for the occupants.

Building services such as pipes, cables, ducts and electrical sockets can compromise the fire resistance of a room as they pass through walls, floors and ceilings, creating an easy route for fire.

A combination of active and passive fire protection measures is therefore vital to control potential fires to ensure the safety of the structure and ultimately, protect human life. When a fire breaks out, passive fire protection components separate the building into compartments, which help to limit the spread of fire.

FG Trading, in partnership with the United Kingdom based passive fire protection specialist, Nullifire, offers a comprehensive range of fire-stopping products for the sealing of construction movement joints, building gaps and service penetrations.
