Passive protection

As much in the new Spanish Technical Code of Construction (CTE) as in the Regulation of security in the industrial facilities (RSIEI), great importance occurs to the passive security.

APAGAFOC offers an ample range of solutions of passive protection fit to the necessities of each client.

Designed materials, systems and techniques to prevent the appearance of a fire, to prevent or to delay its propagation and to facilitate its extinction.

COMPARTMENTATION EI: FALSE CEILINGS, FORGED, PARTITIONS

In order to establish effective barriers between the fire and the element to protect, preventing the propagation from the fire to other areas. We work with all the certified suppliers.

PROTECTION OF METALLIC STRUCTURES

In an industrial factory the RSCEIE demands to it that the metallic pillars that support the cover must have a stability to the fire from EF-30 to EF-180, depending on the level of intrinsic risk, the configuration of the workshop or factory and if it is under grazing.

Steel structures lose their lifting capacity when increasing the temperature, therefore they must be covered so that they resist.

In order to obtain it, APAGAFOC offers all the solutions:

  • Intumescent paintings: in contact with the heat they react chemically forming a carbonaceous foam that isolates thermally, reaches REI-60.
  • Projected mortar: product with barren hydraulic ligantes and additives, allows to obtain REI-240, express to apply.
  • Plates of calcic Fibrosilicato: fireproof, they cover the pillar of aesthetic way, reaches to REI-240.

According to the geometry of the metallic profile, the number of faces exposed to the fire and the thickness of the covering, the necessary fire resistance is obtained.
Also we have protection means to the concrete and other lifting elements.

FIRE RESISTANCE OF WALLS

In an industrial factory of configuration type B, the wall that it separates 2 fire sectors, when it undertakes the cover must have a strip of 1 meter wide and with REI-60 (Low Risk), REI-90 (Medium Risk) and REI-120 (High Risk).

STEPS DE CABLES OR CONDUITS

  • Plates of protection of ventilation conduits
  • Openings of ventilation with registries EI
  • Ductos of electrical cable protection

SEALED OF HOLLOWS

By means of intumescentes materials like:

  • Intumescentes strips
  • Resistant sellantes foam to the fire
  • Collarines for the passage of pipes
  • Termoexpansivas pads
