Q: I am wondering what is the best fire protection system for commercial buildings? My question is do you recommend using timber, glass or concrete? Thank you. A: Using timber, glass or concrete fire barriers is recommended for most high risk situations where the spread of fire could be disruptive to normal business operations and cause severe damage or loss of life. However, where the fire spread can not be stopped before evacuation or the property is uninhabitable due to continuing fire, it is recommended that you install the fire protection systems that do not contain gaps through which the flames can travel.

It is important that all fire barriers have continuous support from structural fire walls, flammable vapour barriers, fire doors and escape routes as well as fire barriers within the perimeter of the buildings. There should also be emergency telephone numbers at all locations within the office building. All personnel must wear approved fire masks at all times and all escape routes should be visible. Prevention is better than cure, so the correct fire barriers must be used to stop fire from spreading quickly to surrounding buildings and prevent it from burning out completely.
