Commercial Firestopping Systems in Miami, FL

Commercial firestopping refers to the materials, assemblies and products used in combination to provide passive fire protection for your business. These are materials that burn more slowly and help maintain the fire resistance of your building, often while offering some functionality necessary for natural business functions that might otherwise require compromising basic fire resistance.

Types of Firestopping

Effective firestopping involves a variety of different forms of firestopping, such as:

  • Fire-resistant insulation that slows the passage of fires through walls, floors and ceilings, such as mineral wool
  • Fireproof or flame-resistant materials and assemblies for windows, doors and walls
  • Fire-rated joint assemblies that let buildings flex and shift in response to temperature changes in a fire without breaking
  • Fire-rated cable penetrations that ensure the openings used for cables and other penetrants don’t compromise firestopping materials
  • Various other items and materials that help slow the spread of fire passively

Why Firestopping Matters

Firestopping exists to give every other component of your fire emergency system time to work. Doing so saves lives, preserves property and prevents the worst-case scenario of a total failure with massive loss of life. Perhaps as importantly, effective firestopping makes the way a fire burns through a building more predictable and thus ultimately safer and more controllable.

Firestopping is a legally mandated part of any commercial property in any part of the United States; you’ll need to know local and federal regulations to be fully in compliance with your firestopping. You may also be held to additional standards by insurance companies, industry standards applying to businesses in your building, etc. Beyond this, good firestopping is a sound financial investment to protect your other investments.

Firestopping as Part of Your Fire Protection System

Firestopping works as part of a broader fire protection system in any commercial property. Firestopping will slow fires and control where they go and how they go there. This means people have time to evacuate as safe routes last and fires stay contained for longer.

In combination with active fire suppression systems such as sprinklers, kitchen hood suppression systems, etc., you can extinguish fires and make sure the vast majority of fire events are short-lived and involve minimal, easily repaired damages. These active systems cannot succeed if you install them in a tinder box and allow a fire to spread rapidly.
