Fire penetrations are used to stop the spread of heat and smoke through roofs and walls. Penetrations are commonly made for communication cables as well as electrical and plumbing services. Unprotected openings in fire compartments will jeopardise the fire integrity of the building and allow the spread of fire and increase the damage to the building.
Fire stopping penetrations are sealed via the application of products such as Collars, Fire Wrap, Fire Strips, Acrylic Sealant, Fire Proof Mortar and Fire Proof Grafitex. PROFINISH Fire Protection provides skilled passive fire technicians who have the training and knowledge to recognise the type of penetration and apply the correct fire stopping techniques.
