What Is Firestopping?

You can’t guarantee that a fire will never break out at your property, but you can do everything possible to prevent a fire from spreading quickly. Firestopping systems help slow the spread of fire, smoke, gas, and more.

A firestopping system can prevent a fire from moving from one room to another, giving firefighters time to put out the flames. This can also allow people inside the building time to escape safely.

A firestopping system can also keep your structure up to code with the local fire safety laws. Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing understands the local fire codes and will make sure your building meets the criteria.

Passive vs. Active Fire Protection

There are two main methods to defend against a commercial property fire: Passive and active fire protection. Below are a few details explaining both methods:

  • Passive fire protection: This involves the design and layout of a structure being set up to help prevent the spread of a fire. Compartmentalizing spaces and installing proper materials in the walls that help prevent fire spread are examples of passive protection.
  • Active fire protection: This includes more commonly known fire protection that actively fights against a fire. Examples include fire extinguishers in every room, sprinkler systems, and fire alarms throughout a building.

Property owners should consider passive and active fire protection for their buildings. Contact Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing today to discuss fire protection options for your building.

Types of Firestopping for Your Building

We provide many different services that can contribute to your firestopping system. Our team has the tools and materials to provide:

  • Caulking and sealant: These acrylic or silicone materials seal openings around doors, walls, pipes, and other spaces to prevent the spread of gas or smoke.
  • Mortar: For sealing wall assemblies to floors and connecting concrete surfaces, mortar is a mix of gypsum and cementitious material that helps prevent the spread of a fire from one space to another.
  • Collars: These installations are connected to ducts, pipes, and flues to contain flames and stop them from spreading quickly.
  • Insulation and fire blankets: Special blankets and insulation are designed to resist fire and burn slowly, helping impede the spread of a fire.
  • Intumescent coating: These coatings can expand when heated and cover columns or beams in the event of a fire, protecting the surface and helping the structure of the building remain strong.
