Fire Stopping Installation

Fire Compartmentation
Curtain & Cavity Barriers

Cavity barriers are passive fire protection materials that form cavity fire stops within buildings and can be installed horizontally or vertically. When heated to high temperatures, they can prevent the spread of fire and smoke by expanding to seal any gaps in walls. The material provides fire compartmentation after the expansion from the heat source.

Fire Batts

A fire batt is an ablative coated mineral wool firestop board used to reinstate the fire rating of walls and floors penetrated by services. Single or double batt could be required depending on the fire rating that is required. Some fire batts also aid the acoustic performance of building structures such as floors, drywalls and masonry. The material is fire resistant and can provide an effective smoke seal.

Compound

Fire stopping walls and floors can often become compromised by building programmes which need to make way for pipework or cable trays. Fire compound is usually used for sealing electrical cable penetrations.

Collars & Wraps

Pipe wraps and collars are designed for use on plastic pipes that pass-through floors and walls. They have an intumescent material which expands inwards to squeeze the pipe, collapsing it until the opening is completely sealed.

Acoustic & Smoke Seals
Intumescent Sealant

Intumescent sealant is generally applied to fire doors, windows, cables, pipes, joints, voids and other small holes through which fire could potentially spread. The sealant is installed to ensure there are no gaps and creates a barrier to smoke and flames which significantly reduces the damage that a fire can cause.

Active vs Passive Fire Protection: What’s the Difference?
Not just a door
Fire Doors

A fire door is not just the door. It is a complete assembly comprising the frame, any fire resistant glazing, intumescent fire and smoke seals, and all the ironmongery that is used on the door, such as hinges, overhead door closers, latches and locks.

Fire Resistant Glazing

Fire-resistant glazing is a process to make glass panels more resistant to flames, smoke, and heat. There are different types of fire-resistant glazing techniques that you can combine, each offering a different level of protection from fire and heat.
