Passive fire protection systems for oil & gas safety

Accidental fire outbreaks in the oil & gas industry pose great risks for workers. The engineering of a safety proof structure ensures the stability of the structure and makes fire and explosion risk manageable. In this way, efficient evacuation can be realized. The ideal way to make the structure as safe as possible is by combining active fire protection and passive fire protection. Active fire protection systems are e.g. fire extinguishers or sprinkler systems. Passive fire protection is a group of systems that compartmentalize a structure through the use of fire and blast rated architectural compounds, such as fire and blast rated wall systems, doors, and windows.
