ENVIROGRAF® products protect structural openings where services pass through building elements such as fire-rated ceilings, floors, and walls, to maintain their integrity. These intumescent systems of passive fire protection are installed and remain passive until they are required to do their fire prevention job.
Passive fire protection is the first line of defence in a fire, and it works by reacting to fire without human intervention, sealing openings to contain fire in a building by means of compartmentation, by retarding the passage of flames across a surface, and by resisting the penetration of fire into structural elements such as doors. This not only limits the damage to property, it gives time for people to be evacuated safely from the building and allows fire fighters to get to the scene. You can get a visual introduction to passive fire protection and fire prevention by viewing the videos at www.envirograf.tv and the information on this site.
Fire stopping products can be physical barriers such as fire barrier curtains or intumescent products that react when heat is applied in a fire. These passive fire protection and fire prevention products do not require human intervention in order to perform their valuable duty. Another type of passive fire protection and fire prevention is the flame retardant product which, as its name suggests, retards the spread of flames across a surface. These flame retardants can be in the form of coatings and paints for hard surfaces, or aerosol sprays for soft surfaces such as cloth and similar materials such as artificial flowers and foliage.
