Protect your buildings and future projects from fire damage with Hilti Firestopping!
Once penetrations are made in a fire-rated wall, floor or floor/ceiling assembly--to accommodate things like electrical wiring, piping, or ductwork--that assembly is no longer a fire-rated assembly. Those penetrations need to be patched with an approved Firestopping material in order to make it fire-rated again.
Common Firestop products include Intumescent and acrylic sealants, mineral wool, putty, and collars. Their purpose is to resist (or stop) the spread of fire and its byproducts through openings/penetrations.
Problem is, a lot of penetrations are forgotten, left alone or patched with something that isn’t a fire-rated product like Firestopping. And that could lead to a host of problems, including fire risk and fire code violations.
Properly installed Firestopping is extremely important to the containment of deadly fire, toxic gases and smoke. The lack of Firestopping or improperly installed Firestopping materials allow fire and smoke to move between floors and rooms. By protecting any openings in the fire rated floors, walls, and doors, Firestopping reduces the risk of death or injury to occupants and the loss of property.
