The Importance of Fire Stopping
The integrity of the fire compartments must be maintained to ensure the overall fire safety of a building. In any live building, however, there are always services, works and other activities taking place that impact on the structures and elements of the compartmentation.
The International Association of Fire and Rescue Services has published that fires in contemporary buildings, develop and spread around 5 to 10 times faster than buildings have in the past due to the significant increase in combustible materials being used. Modern buildings also have a large amount of pipework and HVAC ducts, which create points of vulnerability where gases, smoke and flames can spread when adequate protection is not in place. It is therefore a priority to protect the building or stop the fire quickly and effectively.
Prospect Fire use market leading fire stopping products, designed to prevent the movement of gases, smoke, and flames, to close any gaps and improve vulnerable areas where heat, gas and flames could pass through to other areas of the building.
