Fire Prevention Plus
CREATING SAFER ENVIRONMENTS
Our mission at Fire Prevention Plus is to assist landlords, owners and custodians of properties to ensure the safety of occupants and visitors and to protect property and life.
We do this through effective management of Passive Fire Protection which is one of the most important aspects of fire safety both in the home, and in commercial or public buildings.
Passive fire protection is a term that is used to refer to a wide variety of products and processes. Our website introduces the core concepts and product types available through Fire Prevention Plus.
Fire Prevention Plus are qualified and experienced in all aspects of Fire Safety and we are able to carry out Fire Risk Assessments for your property or business. We also able to fulfill any Fire Prevention Works that may be required as a result of the Fire Risk Assessment.
Preventing fires and the spread of fire is everyone’s responsibility. We all need to be alert to anything that could cause fire or enable a fire to spread and report any problems or risks so they can be corrected.
Fire prevention involves stopping the spread of fire by reducing fuel for a fire, reducing or controlling ignition sources and keeping fuel and ignition sources apart.
Compartmentalisation is a frequently used term within the fire industry and is one of the core principles of Passive Fire Protection. An example of compartmentalisation would be the installation of (minimum) 30 minute fire rated barriers separating areas throughout a property. The creation of layered pockets of fire resistance ensures a fire can be contained within a relatively small area, and therefore enables people to exit the building safely, reduces risk to life and minimises any damage to the property.
