    Fire Stopping

    Fire stopping is the act of sealing any opening to prevent the passage of fire, smoke, and heat through different parts of a building. By creating fire-resistant compartments that divide the building both vertically and horizontally, the spread of fire can be effectively contained. Implementing fully compliant fire stopping is crucial for buildings to limit the spread of fire, and to limit insurance providers’ risk.

    Fire Stopping Regulations for Insurance Providers

    According to the 2020 amendments to the Building Regulations Act of 2010 on Fire Safety for Volume 1: Dwellings, buildings should prevent the spread of fire through internal linings while also meeting other requirements:


    • The premature collapse of the structure is avoided
    • Adequate measures have been taken to ensure that there is enough distance between buildings and within buildings to prevent the spread of fire.
    • Wherever it is needed, automatic fire suppression is available.
    • The spread of fire and smoke in cavities is limited.


    In addition to the above, the document and its amendments specify the proper methods for installing fire stopping measures. Our team of experts can assist insurance providers in this process to ensure maximum protection and compliance.
