Passive Fire Stopping Systems
Passive fire prevention is an integral component, which is designed and built-in to the fabric of the structure. It is also an essential element of the fire safety of a building. The risk of fire can be minimized by dividing the building into a series of compartment/cells bounded by fire rated walls and floors.
To maintain the firestopping integrity of a compartment/cells, any gaps, openings, void or channels within the fire rated walls or floors must be sealed with an approved or certified system to prevent the passage of fire, smoke and toxic gases.
