What Is Firestopping?

Firestopping is a system of materials designed to limit the effects of a fire in a building. While a fire may not be avoidable, firestopping can slow or stop a fire in its tracks. This can give people in the building more time to escape and limit the amount of damage caused by a fire. It can also keep property owners remain compliant with local and state fire codes.

Passive vs. Active Fire Protection

There are two common types of fire protection:

  • Active fire protection refers to the methods aimed at preventing or minimizing a fire by taking direct action. Examples include fire extinguishers, fire alarms, smoke detectors and sprinklers.
  • Passive fire protection is a technique that breaks up a building into compartments to reduce the spread of fire, smoke and heat throughout the building. Passive fire protection may involve commercial firestopping systems.

In some cases, commercial properties require a combination of active and passive fire protection methods. Our contractors can discuss your needs and install the right systems for you.

Types of Firestopping for Your San Antonio Building

Many different forms of firestopping can reduce the impact of a fire. A few of our firestopping systems include:

  • Caulking and sealants: Our acrylic and silicone sealants can seal the spaces around pipes, doors and joints to prevent the spread of fire and smoke.
  • Insulation and fire blankets: We install top-grade wool, fiberglass and high-temperature foam in walls and ceilings to prevent the spread of heat.
  • Mortars: These gypsum-based or cementitious materials seal wall assemblies to concrete floors, seal the spaces between adjoining concrete surfaces and more.
  • Intumescent coatings: As special coatings that expand when heated, these can help protect exposed columns and beams.
  • Collars: Collars can be wrapped around pipes, flues and ducts to seal out flames and prevent the further spread of a fire.
