The U.S. Fire Administration estimates that there were 379,600 residential and 103,600 non-residential structure fires in 2018. The leading cause in both environments, with 50.7% and 30.6%, respectively, was cooking. Also, in 2018, the total reported loss due to these fires was $25.6 billion.
Fire caulking, also known as a fire-stop sealant, can help prevent structure fires. Typically rated for between one and four hours; the duration in which the product was proven to be fire-resistant during testing, they are specifically designed to withstand heat. These also products expand under specific conditions.
Fire Caulking Application
Much like window sealant, fire caulking can be applied using a caulking gun around the windows and doors of your building, along with other impenetrable areas like joints. Doing this will create a tight seal that will help prevent fires, enhance comfort, and improve efficiency. It also helps minimize sound transfer. All materials are installed following local building and fire codes.
