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 required. The material is fire resistant and can provide an effective smoke seal. Some fire batts also aid the acoustic performance of building structures such as floors, drywalls and masonry.

Fire Sealing Compound

Fire stopping walls and floors can often become compromised by building programmes which need to make way for pipework or cable trays. A 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 that expands inwards to squeeze the tube, collapsing 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 no gaps and creates a barrier to smoke and flames, significantly reducing the damage that a fire can cause.

Fire Dampers

Fire Dampers are an excellent fire safety tool that should be utilised by any building with ventilation systems in place. They are fitted to vents and automatically detect heat or smoke, causing them to close. Or individuals can operate the dampers manually from a distance.

The fire dampers close their slots once the fire reaches a specified temperature. As the fire continues to heat, the metal expands, sealing the spaces entirely.

This closes the vent, attempting to contain the fire and reduce the chances of it spreading.

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 used on the door, including hinges, overhead door closers, latches, etc., locks.
