The heat is off with fire stopping

What is fire stopping?

Fire stopping is an essential part of the fire protection process in a building, whereby openings and joins in the walls and floors are securely sealed to prevent the spread of fire, heat, smoke and toxic gases through multiple building compartments.  

Why do we need fire stopping solutions?

A typical building contains a much higher volume of combustible products than 50 years ago, including plastics. In addition, heating and ventilation ducts, pipes and cables for utilities and communications etc. tend to pass through the compartment elements of a modern building, creating voids through which fires can develop at a rate 5-10 times faster than before. 

Our fire stopping solutions are designed to close the gaps where fire and excess heat could potentially pass to other areas of a building or neighbouring structures. The spread of a fire is thereby contained by creating fire resisting compartments.
