Accidental fires almost always start as concentrated incidents, for example electronic devices can overheat and ignite a fire. If you’re lucky, the fire may burn itself out and cause minimal damage. However, piping throughout your building provides an easy outlet for smoke and fire.
Non-metal piping can catch on fire and spread. If you have ductwork running throughout your building, it can also catch fire if it isn’t well protected.
The main benefit of fire collars and wraps is to seal up those pipes and ductwork and contain the fire before it causes more damage.
Fire collars are unobtrusive, they’re installed directly on the wall where the pipe goes through and aren’t that thick.
While wraps aren’t as nice looking, they can be trimmed as needed or taped together for larger structures you want to cover.
Finally, you will potentially save your business thousands in damages later on by investing a little bit of money on preventative measures now. Additionally, you may find insurance premiums are reduced as a result. There are many other preventative measures you can take to protect you home against fires, such as fire compartmentation.
