Fire Stopping

Compartmentation Saves Lives

One of the biggest Threats to building structures occurs when gaps and cavities, either in the the building envelope and structure or as the result of service penetration, exist between fire separating walls and floors giving fire, smoke and heat the opportunity to spread vertically and laterally, rapidly and with devastating effect. Firestopping is the sealing of these gaps to ensure the integrity of the compartment line.

Older buildings often lack correct fire stopping, we are able to carry out a full photographic fire stopping survey using Boris software which has been developed with the needs of our company and our clients in mind. Once works have been carried out another photograph is taken of completed works to form a completed report.

Fire Rated Sealants

Fire rated sealants are designed for sealing gaps and joints within structures maintaining integrity when sealing around service penetrations.

Sealants can used in most joints up to 10mm without backing and up to 30mm with.

COATED BATTS

Coated batts are used to provide fire and acoustic barriers for voids created by the passage of services in drywall, masonry walls and floors.

Batts are manufactured from density mineral fibre slabs, factory coated with a white, class ‘O’ flexible, waterproof ablative coating to produce a durable fire barrier for service penetration openings.

This is ideally suited to being cut around service penetrations and other elements of structures ensuring that a complete and robust fire compartment has been installed.
