Firestopping is a part of the passive fire protection system that involves the practise of reinstating fire compartmentation and barriers that have been penetrated. A comprehensive fire-stopping set-up includes components like mortars, silicone, firestop pillows, mineral fibres, and rubber compounds.

Insufficient firestopping of fire wall opening penetrations can allow fire to penetrate fire cells, while incorrect material selection or poor installation can severely reduce the fire resistance rating of the firestopping seal. Unprotected fire wall, barrier and fire resistance system penetrations provide one of the major contributing cause of the rapid, erratic spread of smoke and fire in your building. However, to ensure your facility, occupants and assets remain safe, fire stopping and fire sealing techniques can maintain your passive fire protection systems and reduce the severity of the impact of fire. Fire stopping pertains to several key elements for maintaining a passive fire protection system
RSIE & SHINE Fire Protection are your firestopping installation experts. Most fire- stopping products engage intumescent materials that, when exposed to heat, expand to fill any cavities in the fire wall, barrier or floor opening penetration. Usually, these products include fire-stop mortar, caulk, putty sticks, blocks and pillows.
Firestop mortar and caulk are semi-permanent products and are generally applied to the penetration with a hand-held caulk gun while mortar products are applied with a trowel. Firestopping putty sticks are moulded around the cables, conduit and pipes that penetrate the fire-resistant system. Fire-stop blocks and pillows that contain intumescent material can also be installed, stacked and formed to fit into large opening penetrations. Where a cable tray finishes at the wall and a conduit sleeve penetrates the wall to offer a path for cables, RSIE & SHINE will implement a fire stop around the conduit penetration and seal the conduit body with fire-stopping material
