Passive Fire Protection for the Healthcare Sector

Healthcare facilities including hospitals, hospices and long-term care facilities should be built with comprehensive passive fire protection in mind, in order to keep patients and personnel safe during an incident.

Murus Fire Protection can consult during the construction phase, as well as retrofitting passive fire protection in hospitals and care facilities with a minimum of fuss or disruption.

Our experienced engineers can adapt to your working conditions, allowing us to quickly and quietly install passive fire protection even in long-term care facilities and residential hospices, where patients are present 24/7.

We also work on clinical labs, to install the necessary passive fire suppression materials and contain the spread of fire within a single laboratory, room or zone.

Together, fire suppression systems including airtight fire doors, fire barriers and cavity wall solutions all help to combat the spread of flames, heat and smoke, reducing damage to property during an incident and ringfencing the fire until emergency services can attend.

Our services

We work closely with healthcare operators, in order to ensure that your passive fire protection meets British Standards, building regulations and additional sector-specific demands for safeguarding patients.
