Abstract

Building partition wall, as one of the building partition constructions, and as one of the major renovation projects of the decoration and renovation engineering in commercial and official buildings, it often has an effect on the project's fire safety. In this article, the type, structure and materials of partition walls are summarized in classification, factors affecting the fire performance of building partition walls are analyzed, and problems of partition walls in engineering and fire protection designing are illustrated and analyzed. International and national standards are analyzed. Through discussions on fire safety audit and setting of partition walls, the adverse effects of partition wall renovation projects on building structures, damage to fire prevention compartment, impact on evacuation route of people, smoke control design and on other fixed fire protection facilities, are discussed in this article. It can be seen from these projects, if building partition walls were designed improperly, it would do great harm to building fire safety. Therefore, it should be taken seriously in fire safety designing. Some suggestions on the problems in the application of partition wall engineering are proposed, which can provide references for fire prevention designing.
