Fire sealing around cables

Commercial buildings are frequently a hive of activity where people come and go. With this in mind it is vital that a commercial property has the correct fire safety systems in place. Both passive and active systems will be required, and it is passive systems which are not as obvious when it comes to protecting a building.

This is because active systems such as extinguishers and sprinklers can be seen easily, while passive fire protection systems are placed within the structure of the building, preventing a fire from spreading. An element of passive fire protection which can be overlooked is fire sealing around cables.

Fire sealing around cables, pipes and ducts help to close up any openings which would allow smoke and fire to spread. Providing a strong seal around penetrations is a successful fire stopping tactic used to restrict a fire to a single compartment of a building. 

Fire stopping is a major part of passive fire protection and should be carried out by industry experts. Here at EA-RS Passive Fire Protection we are an experienced passive fire protection company.
