Commercial Fire Stopping Projects

Fire stopping is the act of installing barriers to fire, typically to prevent the spread of fire or smoke between compartments. Fire stopping services are often required when penetrating through a fire-rated assembly, such as a wall or floor, installing utilities, or running cable trays. Fire stopping materials used to fill the openings around penetrations can include intumescent sealants, putty pads, pillows, and spray-applied foams.

What Are the Commercial Fire Stopping Factors You Should Consider?

There are several factors to consider when selecting the appropriate fire stopping materials for a project. These include:
  • type of firestop system required
  • potential exposure to heat and flame
  • size and location of the opening
The wrong fire stopping materials or installation techniques can result in inadequate fire protection, which could lead to property damage, injuries, or even deaths.

How Important Is Passive Fire Protection?

Fire stopping is a critical component of passive fire protection and should be done by trained and experienced professionals. Improperly installed firestop systems can create gaps and openings that allow fire and smoke to spread, defeating the purpose of the fire barrier.

Are There Different Types of Commercial Fire Stopping Systems?

There are several types of commercial fire stopping systems, each with its own benefits and drawbacks.Intumescent sealants are typically more expensive than other fire stopping materials, but they provide a higher level of fire protection. They expand when exposed to heat, creating a tight seal that prevents fire and smoke from passing through.Putty pads and pillows are less expensive but may not be as effective at sealing larger openings. Hence, they are typically used for small openings, such as around electrical outlets.Spray-applied foams can be more difficult to install but provide a better seal than other options. They can be used to fill larger openings, such as those created by ductwork or cable trays.
