Creating compartments within the building using protective elements in walls, floors, ceilings, and doors can. keep fire fully contained and protect escape routes. Moreover, fire compartmentation and fire stopping also help to contain a fire outbreak for a considerable period of time to prevent it from escalating and causing havoc throughout your property and transferring. Therefore, this gives the emergency services plenty of time to act accordingly and put a stop to potential fire outbreaks.
