Third-party specialists, such as M&E engineers, HVAC engineers, plumbers and telecommunications service providers will create penetrations in walls, floors and ceiling voids when making their installations. This often involves the passage of wires, pipes and ventilation ducts through compartment walls or floors.
For critical fire stopping, any openings caused by service penetrations need to be protected using a fire stopping system. The smallest amount of air leakage can clear the way for smoke and, therefore, compromise the compartmentation system. Our team at Adaston installs quality fire stopping systems, helping to contain the spread of fire and cold smoke for building safety and risk management.
