Why Is Firestopping Important?

Firestopping materials are designed to stop the spread of a fire from one room to adjoining rooms through the empty spaces in walls, ceilings, floors or around penetrations made for pipes and cables. By sealing these areas and keeping the fire contained in one room as long as possible, there is more time for the occupants of the building to evacuate safely and for first responders to arrive and stop the spread of the fire.

Firestopping is required by code in most commercial buildings as part of a larger fire protection plan that includes both active and passive fire protection systems. Active measures like fire alarms and duct detectors are used to detect fires, while fire sprinklers and suppression systems fight fires directly. Passive protection like fireproofing allows beams, columns and other structural components to last longer in a fire, while firestopping works to keep the fire contained. Firestopping is most commonly found in:

  • The stud bays of framed walls
  • Wall to ceiling or wall to floor interfaces
  • Expansion joints in concrete slabs
  • Curtain walls around slab foundations
  • Penetrations for pipes, electrical cables, flues, vents and HVAC ducts
  • Interior doors and other openings between rooms
