Firestopping is a physical barrier designed to prevent the spread of flames, deadly gases and toxic smoke through the openings created during building upgrades and the installation of electrical, communications, plumbing, and ventilation systems. These barriers can also fill breaches in fire-resistant walls and floor assemblies.
Firestopping at Alcal can take several forms but is most commonly used for repairing a system through penetration, such as a pipe through a fire-rated wall. Firestopping often consists of workable materials that fill gaps between conduits, wires, pipes, and walls as they pass between rooms.
