Fire Sealing (Fire Stopping) systems aim – to prevent fire, heat and toxic smoke spread by surface various engineering communications (pipes, ducts, cables).
The fire codes allover the world state that electrical and sanitary commucations, when passing wall or ceilings are lowering the fire resistance of construction. Therefore the special fire sealing systems have to be used. Such systems are eliminating the threat of fire spread from one fire zone to another by burning electric cables and etc.
Firestop Compound (the hard system) is a specially formulated gypsum based mortar, which is mixed with water to be trowelled or poured around service penetrations.
Panel seal (the soft system) is fire rated mineral wool plate covered with special intumescent ablative coating that expands in case of fire.
Fire sealing systems are tested according standard EN 1366-3 and EN 1366-4 requirements.
