What is Passive Fireproofing – Detailed Explanation
When we speak of passive fire protection, we generally are referring to a wide range of practices and products. For the sake of better understanding, we can describe PFP as specific materials that are ingrained in our surrounding structures with the sole purpose of stopping fires from starting or spreading.
PFP can be said to be a default line of defense against a fire outbreak. Its role is to either limit the chance of a fire outbreak or significantly reduce how rapidly the fire spreads. Limiting the possibility of a fire starting or decreasing the speed of a fire buys enough time to evacuate occupants.
Passive fire protection materials protect facilities in case there is an outbreak of cellulosic fire in a building, or hydrocarbon or jet fire in oil and gas, refinery, onshore and offshore industries. Passive Fire Protection is designed to safeguard lives, facilities, and properties during fire accidents.
