Fire Stopping

What is Fire Stopping? 

Fire stopping is the process of sealing gaps and holes caused by building services, usually this is needed when cables and pipework are added to the building.

Buildings are separated into fire compartments. This is usually achieved by incorporating fire rated walls, ceilings and fire doors. The purpose of these compartments is to restrict the spread of fire, allowing enough time for people to escape and for the emergency services to arrive. When building services such as cable and pipework are added to the building, breaches are created. Fire stopping is the process of sealing those breaches and reinstating the integrity of the buildings fire walls and ceilings.

Fire Stopping Surveys

Griffin Fire carry out comprehensive site surveys. The purpose of the survey is to identify breaches within the fire wall/ceiling and determine the required fire penetration sealing system. The surveys will include images of all existing penetrations and document the location. This survey can be used as a fire stopping register.

Each penetration will receive its own unique breach identification number for future reference along with recommendations on the required fire stopping sealant to reinstate the buildings fire integrity. All quotations and recommendations will be carried out to an achieve minimum of 60 minute fire rating unless otherwise specified by the client.
