Fire Stopping & Passive Fire Protection
The Need For Fire Stopping
These fire stopping measures are designed to restrain the growth and spread of fire, allowing the building occupants time to escape safely.
It is paramount that any gaps in these fire resisting constructions are sealed to ensure the system works to it's maximum ability. Such gaps are typically at service penetrations through walls and floors, fire protection for penetrations passing through floors, walls, ductwork etc., can provide up to four hours fire resistance.
