Structural Firestopping With Floors

Firestopping (Fire Penetration Seals) Installation

Firestopping or fire penetration seals, are critical to the success of any passive fire protection measure. By sealing the walls and floors of the identified area of a building, a firestopping system ensures the purpose of a passive fire protection installation can be achieved.

With the fire contained within the walls and floors of a designated space, you can ensure the spread of fire, heat and smoke is slowed and contained so:

  • People have time to escape your building.
  • Your property remains structurally intact.
  • Damage to your building and assets is reduced.
  • Firefighters can carry out their work safely.

Without an adequate penetration sealing system, other fire safety measures won’t be able to properly safeguard life, your community or building because the fire, smoke and heat will advance through the property at a rapid rate.

As such a key component of any passive fire protection system, it is essential that your firestopping installation or upgrade is carried out by an accredited, specialist passive fire protection company. Incorrect installation of a penetration sealing system in the floors and walls of your building will put your community and building in danger.

Benefits of Firestopping Systems

Firestopping systems are a powerful, cost-effective fire safety measure that delivers a strong return on investment.

Having an effective penetration sealing system in place will aid your compliance for your mandatory fire risk assessment. Under the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 for England and Wales (FSO or RRFSO), commercial properties must provide a safe escape route for people in the event of a fire.

It is well-documented that an absence of firestopping measures significantly reduces the capacity to slow the growth of a fire within a building. Therefore, building regulations and LPCB designs highlight the importance of the proper installation of penetration sealing systems by accredited experts.

In addition to safeguarding your community, tightly sealing gaps, walls and floors in your property will also deliver better insulation and improved noise reduction.

We install all types of firestopping systems to businesses and homes across London and the South East, including: intumescent seals, load-bearing compound fire seals, pipe wraps and fire barriers.

Intumescent seals provide a robust barrier that can halt the spread of fire for up to four hours. Fire compounds are ideal for certain areas of a commercial building, such as stairwells, lift shafts and plant room floors whilst fire barriers also offer high performance in noise reduction.
