How Firestopping Works & Why It’s Important

The goal of firestopping is to compartmentalize the building and contain any fires in as few rooms as possible. This gives the occupants more time to escape and limits the damage that can occur before firefighters arrive. Materials like caulk, mortar and fire blankets are used to seal openings and prevent the spread of flames, smoke and gases from room to room.

Firestopping works as part of a larger fire protection system, as required by federal, state and local codes. It combines passive measures like firestopping and fireproofing with active measures like fire sprinklers to give your building complete protection and make it as safe as possible for staff, customers and visitors.

Firestopping is used in places like wall cavities, the joints between floors, walls and ceilings as well as around the openings for pipes, ducts or electrical cables to prevent the spread of fire. Fireproofing protects components like walls, beams and columns, and it extends the time they can spend exposed to fire before they fail. Active measures like fire alarms, fire sprinklers and fire suppression systems respond to fires directly and notify the proper authorities.
