Passive Fire protection elements are designed to control fire growth and spread through the erection of barriers that minimize the spread of fire, smoke, and hot gases. Such systems are said to compartmentalize or contain fire to the point or origin thereby allowing occupants time for safe egress and fire fighting personnel time for safe ingress to perform search and rescue. Passive fire protection systems may also enhance structural integrity. Examples of Passive fire protection includes fire resistive rated floors and walls, fireproofing materials for structural elements, fire doors and fire dampers. Firestopping is an essential element of an effective passive fire protection system.

No passive fire protection system is complete without proper fire stopping systems. As service elements penetrate fire resistive rated walls and floors, unsealed gaps around them will allow the spread of flames, smoke and gasses thereby neutralizing the effectiveness of such barriers. Installation of fire stopping materials to seal the gaps around such penetrations restores the integrity of the barriers and maintains hourly fire endurance rating.
