    Fire Stopping

    Fire stopping can be defined as the sealing of any opening to prevent fire, smoke and heat from passing through building compartments. The spread of fire, smoke and heat can be contained by creating fire resistant compartments which segment a building both vertically and horizontally. It is essential that buildings implement fire stopping to restrict fire spread.

    Fire Barrier systems are installed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke in buildings, including roofs, ceilings, and other hidden areas. These systems work best in voids that are smaller than 10.5 metres. If you need vertical fire barrier systems, they can provide insulation and integrity for up to 120 minutes. On the other hand, friction fire barrier slabs can protect for up to 60 minutes.

    Fire partitioning is a safety measure used in building construction to contain the spread of fire. This is done by creating internal walls and ceilings, which can keep the fire within a specific area or room for a certain period. This helps individuals to leave the building and reduces damage to the areas of the building.

    • The possibility of the structure collapsing early has been successfully averted.
    • Adequate safety measures have been undertaken to ensure that there is a suitable distance maintained between and within buildings to prevent the spread of fires.
    • Automatic fire suppression systems have been installed wherever they were deemed necessary.
    • Cavities can limit the spread of fire and smoke to a certain extent.


    In addition, the document and its updated versions provide instructions for installing fire stopping measures in a proper manner. Our professional team is ready to assist you with this process to ensure maximum safety.
