Services running through a compartment wall (such as pipework, electrical and communications cables) need to be fire stopped in order to maintain the fire resistance performance of the wall. Fire will travel through the weakest part of the wall, so it is important that all services that pass through the wall are properly fire stopped using appropriately tested fire stopping seals.
The correct installation of a fire stopping seal is crucial to retain the fire resistance performance. Incorrect installation can reduce this performance, meaning that you won’t achieve the required protection in the event of a fire.
Our fire stopping installation scheme is designed to verify that fire stopping seals are installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that the fire resistance performance is retained.
