Fire Rated Partitions
Fire can be swift and deadly. It can spread through a building and destroy everything in its path, risking the lives of the people and causing thousands of dollars’ worth of property damage. Many people don’t realize that there are ways to prevent and control the fire before it can travel and wreak havoc. Fire needs fuel to travel and will quickly lose momentum if there are obstacles in its path, that can’t be overcome.
On a commercial property, fire-rated partitions can be these obstacles; and it’s important that every commercial property have these installations to slow down the movement of fire. As an experienced commercial construction drywall contractor in Washington, D.C., we at Absolute Drywall Construction always recommend to our clients that they use these partitions on their premises.
The Importance of Fire Rated Partitions
These partitions are passive fire-stopping systems. Because they’re made from fire-rated materials, they are not combustible and won’t burn easily. That deprives fire of the fuels it needs to continue to burn and travel. As these partitions aren’t fuel, the fire will have to find a way around them to move forward.
These passive fire stopping systems can successfully stop small fires, which is why you should consider using them on your commercial property. When you add these to your commercial property, you don’t just divide your space effectively, but also add another layer of safety to it.
These systems are often used in a number of applications, including factory partitioning, data centers, retail and commercial properties, warehouses, sub-dividing walls, etc. They’re a good safety measure to include in your property. After all, every minute counts when you’re facing a fire on your property.
