Shutting down the risk
In commercial, industrial and high rise buildings, pipework and trunking will penetrate virtually every floor and wall – creating a potential for passage of smoke and fire. While fire protection can be effectively designed in to close the smallest of gaps, combustible elements such as plastic pipes and electrical cabling will essentially open up a new pathway when exposed to heat and flames. To reinstate the firestopping in these scenarios, expansive and intumescent treatments need to be installed which will react and provide robust protection in the event of a fire. ROCKWOOL offers a range of high performance firestopping products which are designed to close down pipes and cables – providing peace of mind and fundamentally shutting down the spread of fire risk.
