Structural fire protection helps to prevent or contain fires and to secure escape and rescue routes in the event of a fire. This requires subdividing buildings into fire zones that contain the spreading of fires for a defined period. This means that openings are closed off with fire and smoke protection doors, fire protection gates and fire-resistant glazing. Fire protection coatings reliably protect steel constructions against the impact of fire. Minimax solutions for ventilation systems prevent the spreading of smoke and combustion fumes.
