Protection of buildings and infrastructure from fire is an important factor when making project and implementing designs in question. Depending on the purpose of building an experienced designer will always predict adequate fire protection. The system consists of a device for detecting fires, structural elements for the passive protection and at the end there is a system of active protection that directly serves to extinguish the fire.
When used as an element of fire protection plasterboard a passive barrier. Specifically, its natural molecular structure contains water, which in the process of crystallization bound to other molecules and forms so-called hydrates. When the plaster is exposed to heat, the water passes from the state of hydrates of the water, but if the heat source is extremely high then water even evaporates. All this contributes to the protective effect of gypsum board against fire.
As gypsum boards act as a barrier to expanding emissions of heat, better effects are achieved by using a thicker protection – placing a few boards one to the other.
