Structural Fire Protection in Buildings
Separation of building services engineering on escape routes
The main objective of preventive fire protection is the protection of people and thus securing escape and rescue routes.
A rescue route is a structural route, which people can use in the event of acute danger to get to safety or which allows them to be rescued with the help of others.
Rescue routes must be designed as a safe escape tunnel so that a building can be exited safely and evacuation is possible. This means: Escape routes must be kept free of fire and smoke for a certain period of time and additional fire must not be sparked by combustible material such as fire loads of electrical installations.
