Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing specializes in firestopping systems for commercial buildings in the Raleigh-Durham area. A fire in your commercial building can be devastating, costly and life-threatening. Fire containment is a top priority for any commercial building owner.
Commercial buildings need a combination of active and passive fire protection systems to meet code requirements to keep the building and its occupants safe. Firestopping will help you meet the passive fire protection system requirements.
Firestopping relies on the compartmentalization of various building components, including fire-rated walls, joints, and floors. Firestopping prevents the spread of a fire within a building by sealing every possible opening.

You might want to paint over the firestopping in your building to make it blend in with the rest of the interior. It’s possible to paint over some firestopping materials, but it depends on the firestopping method and where it’s placed. Some firestopping systems include intumescent coatings as a fireproofing layer, which can be color-matched and applied like paint.
Because fiberglass is not flammable, it can be used for fire blankets and other firestopping methods. It’s important to make sure it’s up to code, so hire a contractor you can trust. One of our experts can take you through the pros and cons of using fiberglass as a firestop in your facility.
It depends. While some firestopping methods require only one side of the wall to be covered, others should cover both sides for comprehensive fire protection. For example, fire caulking is applied to both sides.
Firestopping is required by code in most commercial buildings. Areas that need firestopping include flooring, wall assemblies and ceilings between floors of the building.
