Fire stopping is very important when it comes to people’s safety inside of a building especially if that building has multiple stories. Fire protection measures are an integral component of the components of structural fire protection and fire safety in a building. PFP attempts to contain fires or slow the spread, this is normally implemented with fire-resistant walls, floors and doors. Our workforce is fully trained and compliant in all aspects of health & safety including MSTS, CITB, CSCS, IPAF and PASMA training. Our policies and procedures are reviewed on an ongoing, systematic basis. The importance of fire stopping penetrations with a fire barrier cannot be overstated, when installed correctly, it means occupants within a building can leave safely in the event of a fire. Penetration ceiling systems are a fundamental requirement of the fire safety designs of all buildings.
Our systems provide cost-effective solutions and compliance under the current legislation. Effective penetration sealing prevents the passage of smoke, toxic gases, and fire through gaps around mechanical heating & ventilation services through walls, partitions and floors. The Aptiva fire barrier systems incorporate the use of high-density Rockwool slabs with a white endothermic ablative coating designed to stop the spread of the fire through openings in fire-resistant walls, and floors. The barrier provides an enhanced acoustic performance and fire protection up to a maximum of 240 minutes.
