Fire Stopping and Containment

  • Service Benefits
  • FAQ's
  • Fire Stopping and Containment
    Any gaps within fire compartment walls and floors must be sealed with suitable fire stopping materials. Failure to do so compromises the integrity of the compartment wall, which can result in the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases. Our team has a wide range of fire stopping materials available for any type of compromised situation.
  • Penetration & Linear Gap Sealing
    We offer penetration and linear gap sealing services to maintain the compartmental integrity and insulation properties required. Our team supplies and installs passive fire penetration seals to walls, floors and other structures according to the manufacturer's specifications and our Third Party Accreditation standards.
  • Cavity Barriers
    To maintain the compartmentalisation of buildings, we provide cavity barriers installation services for both horizontal and vertical areas. All cavity barriers are installed in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications and our Third Party Accreditation standards.
  • High-Performance Pipe Collars & Wraps
    We offer high-performance pipe collars and wraps to protect all types of plastic pipes in commercial and domestic buildings. Our intumescent collars and wraps are manufactured from top-quality materials and designed to crush the plastic pipe and seal the aperture completely in case of a fire. Trust our experienced team to supply and install the best pipe collars and wraps for your building's fire protection needs.
  • What is fire stopping?
    Fire stopping is the process of preventing the spread of fire and smoke through openings in walls, floors and ceilings of a building. This is achieved by installing fire-resistant barriers and sealing any gaps or joints in the building's construction.
  • Why is fire stopping important?
    Fire stopping is important to protect buildings and occupants from the devastating effects of fire. It can prevent the spread of smoke and flames, limiting the damage to the building and providing more time for occupants to evacuate.
  • What materials are used for fire stopping?
    A variety of materials can be used for fire stopping, including intumescent sealants, fire-resistant sprays and fire-resistant boards. The materials used depend on the type of opening being sealed and the level of fire resistance required.
  • What are some common fire stopping applications?
    Common fire stopping applications include sealing around pipes, cables and ducts that penetrate walls, floors, and ceilings. Fire stopping is also used to seal gaps in fire-rated walls and floors.
  • Is fire stopping required by building codes?
    Yes, fire stopping is required by building codes and regulations to ensure the safety of buildings and occupants. Building codes specify the level of fire resistance required for various building components and openings.
  • Who is responsible for ensuring fire stopping is properly installed?
    The responsibility for ensuring fire stopping is properly installed typically falls on the building owner or operator. However, architects, engineers, and contractors involved in the construction of the building also have a role in ensuring fire stopping is properly installed.
  • Can fire stopping be retrofitted into an existing building?
    Yes, fire stopping can be retrofitted into an existing building to improve its fire resistance. This may involve opening up walls, floors and ceilings to install fire-resistant barriers and sealing any gaps or joints.
  • How often should fire stopping be inspected?
    Fire stopping should be inspected regularly to ensure it remains in good condition and continues to provide the required level of fire resistance. The frequency of inspections depends on the building's use and occupancy, but typically range from yearly to every five years.
  • Can fire stopping be repaired or replaced?
    Yes, fire stopping can be repaired or replaced if it becomes damaged or deteriorates over time. It is important to ensure any repairs or replacements are carried out using materials that meet the required level of fire resistance.
  • Can fire stopping be tested to ensure it is effective?
    Yes, fire stopping can be tested to ensure it meets the required level of fire resistance. This can be done through laboratory testing or on-site testing to ensure the fire stopping system remains effective in preventing the spread of fire and smoke.
