    Experts in Fire Stopping

    The typical buildings which are being erected today contain significant more amounts of combustible products or materials than what’s been previously built. According to CTIF.org, modern building fires develop and spread at a rate of around 5 to 10 times faster than buildings have in the past. This of course means the priority in order to protect the building, or stop a fire if one should breakout, is imperative in this modern era.


    With new buildings, construction companies invest heavily in piping, HVAC ducts, and other fixings which pass through compartment aspects of the property. This creates “weak spots” in the building where gases, smoke and flames can spread when not properly handled, or protected.


    Ark Fire Protections fire stopping products are used to close up the gaps or improve the “weak spots” where heat, gas and open flames can pass through to other aspects of the building. They’re designed to prevent the spread of hot gases, toxic smoke, and open fires around the building, and other buildings close by.

    What is 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. To learn more about what fire stopping is, visit our blog here.

    Load-Bearing Compound Fire Seals

    Inadequate protection around service risers can put buildings at risk of fire spread. Load-bearing fire compounds are specially formulated with a gypsum-based compound. When set the compound becomes hard with a white matt finish and reinstates the fire ratings of walls and floors depending on specification from the client.


    At Ark Fire Protection we work closely with some of the leading manufacturers and products. Ark are third party accredited for application of compound fire seals. For more information contact or team.

    Batt & Mastic Seals

    Any surfaces that penetrate a fire wall will result in a spread of fire and smoke. Batt and Mastic Seals provide an innovative air seal barrier to keep fire out, but sound and heat in. Following the latest industry guidelines we can incorporate deflection that the surfaces have going through penetrations.


    For Example

    CFX-FX Foam

    Rockwool Soft Seal


    Here at Ark Fire Protection we work closely with leading manufacturers. Our team are the third-party accredited for all passive fire protection works.

    Graphites are high specification formulas designed to prevent the spread of fire, smoke and harmful gasses through an opening situated in fire-rated walls and floors.


    Graphites expand when they are subjected to heat to close openings around penetrations when combustible or materials with low melting temperatures burn away. In the event of a fire the material crushes the pipe or trunking, sealing off this area and maintaining the integrity, which comes in handy in multiple service penetration and cable bunches.

    Fire Stop Pipe Wrap

    Pipe Wraps are designed for installation around plastic piping or trunking passing through fire resistant structures such as walls and doors. During the primary construction phase of a product, i.e. casting floors, an additional tolerance is in built to enable the fitting of Pipe Wrap once the mechanical and electrical services have been installed.


    In the event of a fire the contained intumescent material rapidly expands and crushes the pipe or trunking, sealing off this area and maintaining the integrity.

    Linear Joint Seals

    Flexible linear joint seals within wall cavities and voids are important in reducing the damaging effects of fire and smoke. Joint seals are designed to accommodate structural movement whilst maintaining fire performance of walls and floors.


    Here at Ark, we work with leading manufacturers and are the third party accredited for the installation of linear joint seals.

    Fire Stopping Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Fire Stopping?

    Fire stopping is the process of sealing any openings to prevent smoke, heat and fire from penetrating through building walls and compartments.

    How does fire stopping work?

    Fire-stopping is a means of passive fire protection. It is utilised to seal around the openings of compartments in a fire-resistance-rated floor or wall assembly. The fireproofing of a wall or floor is maintained by firestops to prevent the spread of smoke and fire.

    Who is responsible for fire-stopping?

    The electrical designer may choose to employ a contractor to carry out the installation of fire-stops. Alternatively, the electrical designer may ensure penetrations for wiring systems are sealed to prevent the spread of smoke and fire themselves.
