Firestopping materials like fire blankets, caulk and mortar are designed to keep possible fires contained in as few rooms as possible. It prevents flames, smoke and gases from traveling through voids in walls, gaps around windows and doors or penetrations made for pipes, cables and ductwork.
By limiting the spread of the fire, the people in the building have more time to escape, and damage can be more successfully contained until firefighters arrive.
Firestopping is usually found in locations like:
Firestopping is part of a larger fire protection system for commercial buildings. Active and passive measures are required by code, with fire alarms, fire sprinklers, fire suppression systems and similar equipment actively protecting the building from fire.
