    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 Rated Partitions

    During building construction, fire partitioning is a safety measure used to limit the spread of fire. It is achieved by creating internal walls and ceilings that contain the fire within a specific area or room of the building for a limited time. This helps occupants to find escape routes and minimises damage to the building as only a designated area is affected by fire.
