What is Compartmentation?

Compartmentation is a passive fire protection measure that aims to contain the spread of fire and smoke within a building by dividing it into compartments or fire-resisting compartments.

These compartments are separated from each other by fire-resistant walls, floors, and doors, which are designed to resist the passage of fire and smoke for a specified period of time.

The purpose of compartmentation is to prevent the spread of fire and smoke within the building, limit its damage, and create safe escape routes for occupants.

Compartmentation also helps to protect critical building services and prevent fire from spreading to adjacent buildings. It is an essential element of fire safety design and is required by building codes and regulations.
