Fire Compartmentation - Why Is It Important?
Fire compartmentalization is essential for the safety of your employees and premises. As buildings and the design of buildings evolve, we remain committed to our mission in ensuring that all commercial and industrial buildings are fire-protected to significantly reduce the possibility of fire rapidly spreading.
Fire compartmentalization is paramount no matter the scale or size of the building. By preventing fire and smoke from spreading, can save lives and is proven to suppress the outbreaks of fire for around 30 minutes, depending on the type of building structure.
Fire Stopping Services & Products
JST Construction is able to supply and install high-quality fire-stopping protection systems at your premises. Only the best industry-leading products are used to compartmentalize fire break-outs that as a result, improve employee safety. The different types of products used include;-
Fire Sleeves – Insulated fire sleeves are an integral part of fire-stopping systems. Fire sleeves play an integral part in preventing the spread of fire where plastic and metal pipes join with compartment floors and walls. The product plays a huge part in compartmentalizing the fire in the event of a breakout by crushing and sealing off pipes.
Fire Collars – Fire-resistant levels should be maintained and fire collars are designed to do exactly that. Another key component of fire-stopping systems. In the event of a fire breakout, fire collars work by expanding and crushing the plastic pipe as it softens and plugs the hole. As a result of fire collars being installed and in place, they help to prevent flames from transferring into nearby compartments.
Fire Sealants – Probably the most well-known type of product when it comes to fire stopping and compartmentalization. Fire sealants are an essential component to prevent the spread of fire and smoke into nearby compartments. They work by expanding when heated which as a result, prevents smoke and fire from traveling through gaps indoors.
