Fire Stopping is a passive fire protection measure of combining fire-resistant materials with the constructional fabric of the building. This provides a specific fire rating within the building that allows for occupants to escape or remain safely in their premises during a fire.
Do You Need It?
YES! – Passive Fire Protection can save lives! Fire stopping seals any openings to prevent fire, smoke and heat from passing through multiple building compartments. If openings and gaps are fire stopped the fire spread, both lateral and vertical will be restricted. During the construction process it is vital that any gaps are sealed to ensure the system works to its maximum ability. Such gaps are typically at service penetrations through walls and floors.
