Fire Stopping & Third Party Certification
Compartmentation & Fire stopping is a fire protection system made of various components used to seal openings and joints in fire-resistance rated wall and/or floor assemblies to prevent the spread of fire & if there is a stay put policy, the area you are in is safe and can protect you. Fire stopping is designed to restore the fire-resistance ratings of wall and/or floor assemblies by impeding the spread of fire by filling the openings with fire-resistant materials. Unprotected openings in fire separations cancel out the fire-resistance ratings of the fire separations, allowing the spread of fire, usually past the limits of the fire safety plan of a building.
It is important to ensure that the product specified is suitable for the intended application. Check the product’s fire test and other evidence to ensure it adequately supports the end use application for which it is being used. Similarly, never mix products from one manufacturer with those of another manufacturer. If such products have not been tested together, they may not work.
Fire stopping components include Intumescent Pastes & Sealants, cementitious mortars, silicone, fire stopping pillows, mineral fibers, and rubber compounds.
