The Basics of Fire Stopping
Fire stopping is built on three elements:
- The fire-rated walls, partitions, floors, or ceilings in which the holes are created;
- The cables, wires, or conduits that the holes were made for;
- And the materials and methods used to seal these holes and maintain the fire-rating of your walls.
Our Portland fire caulking professionals will first consider whether or not the holes that were made will be permanent. Typically, electrical wiring will be a permanents penetration, while things like telephone wires or data-cable wires could change positions based on the need. Then, we’ll determine the best way to move forward to ensure the safety and energy efficiency of your home. You can rely on our professionals for any inspection of your fire stopping system as well, which should be performed regularly to ensure the safety of your home.
