Fire Caulking Services | Heat Resistant Sealant
When it comes to business, safety is always the #1 priority, no matter its industry. Fire is the biggest enemy for any building, so Fire Performance Safety is crucial for workplaces. Time is critical when it comes to stopping a fire from spreading further, causing more damage or blocking exits making it difficult for building occupants to escape.
What is Firestopping?
Firestopping is the procedure of re-establishing a compartment wall's fire safety performance or on the joint between two elements, such as floor slabs or where the floor slab meets the wall, using a fire caulking or fire barrier sealant. When either is breached, due to penetration for a pipe, pole, or cable wiring – it reinstates the barrier to the required fire rating, ultimately protecting the building and helping stop the spread of a fire from one room to another.
Professional Firestopping is important
Living in a technology based world, firestopping has become even more critical for businesses, even though firestopping has been a part of building codes for decades.
Anytime penetration is done to allow easier access for wiring, pipes, or anything making its way through a floor slab, ceiling, or wall – firestopping must be completed by a professional to guarantee all penetration holes are adequately sealed and that old ones are moderately brought up to code. If this does not get done in a timely manner or done by a non-professional, you risk vulnerability for the building and its occupants if a fire were to ignite.
Although firestopping is a requirement in all building and industry types – it is especially important in nursing homes, health clinics, hospitals, daycares, and other settings where the occupants may have limited ability or more obstacles to overcome if somebody ordered an evacuation.
