In depth knowhow in Fire Protection Engineering knowledge and compliance requirements with local and international codes allows Passifire to provide high end consultancy services detail as follows:
Passifire provides code compliance of your fire protection systems to ensure compliance with Saudi Building Code, International building code, NFPA and Saudi Civil Defence requirements. Passifire ensures that you put in place the right systems that will provide you compliance while ensuring cost effective solutions that provide you with the right level of protection. Often fire protection requirements such as fire resistance rating of structural steel, fire zones and compartments, smoke control systems and fire resistance rating of smoke control system ducting are over specified by designers and architects. Using the right product for the right exposure of weather or use and occupancy and the correct fire resistance ratings can provide savings of up to 60% of your fire protection cost.
Smoke and Contamination Control Engineering
Passifire provides the design of smoke and contamination control systems. Smoke control systems ensure that goals and objectives of the system of containing the smoke at a certain level above evacuees height or above valuable assets. Other systems ensure that smoke is contained in areas of fire origin away from means of egress and escape. These systems comply with local codes and NFPA and ASHRAE standards. Most often smoke control systems are design based upon Air Changes per Hour (ACH), which is incorrect. Designing systems by setting a ACH would either end up in a system that exceeds required differential pressures leading to difficulties in opening escape root doors. Or would lead to under specified differential pressure making it a system that is ineffective in case of fire. Passifire ensures that the design of the system, including all required supply and exhaust air, sequence of operation and integrations with BMS system. The most important part of any smoke or contamination control system is ensuring that it performs to contain smoke in case of fire. Passifire provides testing and commissioning services of Smoke Control Systems.
Testing Inspections and Risk Assessment

– Inspection of Compartmentation by ensuring that fire rated walls are well constructed as per fire testing certificates, all penetrations and joints are sealed as per fire stopping systems and doors are certified well installed fire rated doors.
– Inspection, testing and commissioning of smoke control systems to ensure that fire alarms systems are well integrated and the BMS system operates as per design sequence of operation. Differential pressure between smoke control zones are performing as per NFPA 92 and ASHRAE Handbook of Smoke Control Engineering requirements. Passifire inspects all escape root doors to ensure that the pressurization does not lead to door opening forces exceeding requirements.
