What Is Firestopping & Why Is it Important?

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:

  • Voids in wall cavities
  • Where walls meet ceilings or floors
  • Curtain walls around slab foundations
  • Expansion joints between concrete structures
  • Doors, windows and other openings in fire-rated walls
  • Penetrations for pipes, cables, ducts, flues and more

Firestopping is part of a larger fire protection system for commercial buildings. Both 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. Passive measures like firestopping prevent the spread of fire, while fireproofing increases the amount of time structural components like beams and columns can be exposed to fire before they fail.
