Passive fire protection systems are designed to block flames, smoke and toxic gases spreading through a building by blocking gaps in fire-rated walls, ceilings and floors.
If just one of these gaps leaks, then the fire protection system is no longer efficient.
When designing passive fire protection systems it’s therefore important to use a range of firestop solutions and not just one product. This helps you to:
- Ensure all the gaps are blocked in a fire-rated area, and that these penetrations work together to stop the spread of fire.
- Find firestop products, which can work for a wide range of sizes and shapes of cables, pipes, joints and penetration holes.
