Fire Stopping

Essential to any fire safety strategy

Products – Processes Regulations – Certification

Modern buildings are full of services, cables and wires. Where these penetrate fire-resisting elements of the building they create a weakness in the fire protection for the building. These must be correctly sealed to maintain the building’s fire resistance levels.

What is Passive Fire Protection?

Passive Fire Protection

Passive Fire Protection is an essential component of structural fire safety.
In accordance with the UK building regulations, all new refurbishments and building must incorperate Passive Fire Protective. By designing buildings this way, compartmentalisation ensures that fire is contained at its point of origin and therefore slows down the spread of flames and smoke. This saves lives by increasing the time people have to escape and reducing structural damage which means the building is less likely to collapse.

Passive fire protection is crucial to larger establishments, however it is effective solution to preventing the spread of fire and smoke within all types of buildings. By fire stopping voids and any services passing through them such as cables, pipes and ductwork, we can ensure compliance and effective performance of these structural elements in the event of a fire.

Our specialist teams cover all aspects of passive fire protection from fire doors, fire barriers, batt & mastic and fire compound. We provide the most efficient and cost-effective solutions using utilise the highest quality accredited and tested materials.

ClearView offers a comprehensive Fire Risk Assessment service and is a 3rd party accredited specialist contractor offering a full range of passive fire protection solutions.


What is Fire Stopping?

Fire stopping is part of the passive fire protection for a building and is the practice of reinstating fire compartmentation or barriers which have been penetrated. The purpose is to prevent or slow down the spread of fire and smoke and keep it within zones or compartments. This prevents escape routes from becoming smoke logged to facilitate escape.

Fire Compartmentation 

This is achieved by dividing the premises into ‘fire compartments’ through the use of fire doors, floors and walls of fire-resisting construction, cavity barriers within roof voids and fire stopping to services that penetrate through these dividing elements.
