Mechanical and electrical services, by necessity breach compartment walls and floors allowing failure of integrity and insulation to occur where gaps around services have not been adequately fire stopped.
Fire stopping systems are tested for up to 4 hours’ integrity, and load bearing products are available.
Thameside Fire Stopping Ltd are able to offer our clients a range of versatile fire stopping systems to maintain compartmentation where mechanical and electrical services pass through walls and floors. We are able to offer assistance with Fire Strategy where necessary and will always offer the most suitable, cost efficient product.
When we have completed a fire stop we record, label & sign off each one. Each label has our company details together with installer name, date of fire stop, drawing reference & fire rating achieved. We know that it is likely that services will be passed through our fire stops in the future but by looking at the label a client will be able to contact us and we can make the fire stop good, returning the integrity and fire rating.
