Hospitals & Fire Doors in CT: Our Expert Explains Passive Fire Protection

Sprinkler systems and fire extinguishers are active fire protection agents that visibly protect you from fire. Fire doors, however, are an example of passive fire protection—the kind of protection you cannot see but significantly helps to both compartmentalize fire and prevent collapse through structural fire resistance. Our fire safety expert from BRAND SERVICES is here to explain more about what makes fire doors in CT an example of passive fire protection – and why they are so important for hospitals!

Why Is Passive Fire Protection Critical to Hospitals?

Passive fire protection is of the utmost importance in hospitals and health care facilitates. As mentioned above, passive fire protection is the type you won’t see, but which will become critically important during a fire. Fire doors, for example, are automated to close by themselves if smoke or heat is detected. That computerized automation is a great example of passive fire protection in hospitals.

Proper precautionary investments, such as fire doors in Connecticut hospitals, allow time for your employees to safely evacuate both occupants and themselves. A fire door can effectively keep fire and smoke from reaching a particular hospital wing for a set amount of time. When in a situation where patients may not be able to exit the floor without assistance, having that additional time for an evacuation can make a significant difference.

Passive fire protection also allows for investments within the building to be better protected and for harm to the structure of the building to be minimized. The less damage incurred, the faster the building will be functioning again and caring for patients.
