What is fire stopping?
Mechanical and electrical services, by necessity, breach compartment walls and floors, often allowing failure of integrity and insulation to occur where gaps around services have not been adequately fire stopped.
Fire stopping involves sealing of gaps and openings to prevent fire, heat and smoke passing from one building compartment to another. However, the often complex and difficult nature of access and design to maintain the fire integrity around electrical and mechanical services where they penetrate compartment walls, or pass through floors, mean special skills are required when services such as ductwork and cables penetrate compartment walls.
