Fire stopping service penetrations

When conducting a passive fire protection survey and coming up with a plan, it is important that every single element is thought through in detail. This includes ensuring that service penetrations in fire-separating elements are looked at thoroughly to ensure they are correctly sealed. 

Fire compartmentation in a building means that each compartment is self-contained through the use of fire rated elements within walls, floors and ceilings. The purpose of this is to reduce the chances of fire spreading rapidly throughout a building. 

Making sure that any compartment wall, floor or ceiling is secure will allow a fire to be contained to the area in which it started, reducing the risk of it spreading. Therefore, damage from a fire can be reduced and more importantly occupants of a building can evacuate safely.

Service penetration seals are used to improve the fire resistance of a building element or sections, helping protect cables, cable trays, pipes and ventilation ducts. Carrying out a full scale fire stopping survey will help determine where these seals are needed.

At Surefire Passive we can use our knowledge and expertise to help a business with their service penetrations to secure their fire line compartmentation plan. This will include carrying out a survey, identifying what is required and then installing the correct fire stopping equipment.
