LSS Life Safety Services® provides a comprehensive range of passive fire protection to motels, hotels, resorts and casinos. Passive Fire Protection is important because it ensures that, in the event of a fire, occupants can escape from the building to avoid being injured or even killed.
Secondly, Passive Fire Protection can help save the building and the assets within.
LSS has identified the Main Causes of Fire in Hospitality Facilities:
Faulty Sprinkler Systems
Obstructed and Cluttered Exit Routes
Faulty Heating and Cooling Equipment
Careless Smoking by Guests
A hospitality building offers many challenges but, life safety is the primary concern. It is essential that all passive fire protection systems operate properly and efficiently. Furthermore, additional pressures from Authorities Having Jurisdiction can impact fire protection testing, inspection and repair requirements.
Passive Fire Protection (PFP) is a group of systems that help compartmentalize a building through the use of fire-resistance rated walls/floors. Compartmentalizing your facility into smaller sections helps to slow or prevent the spread of fire/smoke from one room to the next. PFP helps to limit the amount of damage done to a building and provides its occupants more time for evacuation. PFP includes fire/smoke dampers, fire doors, and fire walls/floors. Dampers are used to prevent the spread of fire/smoke throughout the building through its ductwork. Fire doors help to compartmentalize a building. Firestopping helps to separate the building into compartments. Photoluminescent egress path markers will help guide your guests out of the building to safety.
