Structural steel requires fire protection because it loses structural strength at temperatures that can be quickly reached in a building fire. This will consequently negatively impacts on the structural integrity of the building.
Protecting the structural steel from the heat of a fire will delay the onset of this loss of strength and the possible collapse of the building. This is essential because it allows extra time for both the occupants of the building to escape and fire services to tackle the fire.
Passive structural fire protection is one of the most important factors in HVAC. Highly efficient insulation together with appropriate fire containment is necessary in order to prevent the spread of flames and smoke to other areas of the building.
Properly insulating ventilation ducts is key to containing fires in partitioning areas. These ducts often pass through building compartments which is breached, can allow rapid spread of fire inside the building. Efficient ventilation insulation reduces the need for mechanical methods of fire protection such as sprinklers.
