[fa icon="plus-square"] Firestopping - Saving Lives

career as an insulatorFirestopping is the installation of certain materials to save lives during a fire. By properly applying specific fire-protection materials through standardized and proper design, installation, inspection and maintenance, those inside a building can gain valuable time to escape a building in the event of fire. This provides building owners with peace of mind knowing their project is both expertly crafted and properly installed using the most modern fire-protection technology available.

The Importance of Firestopping
Firestopping is part of effective compartmentation, which is “boxes” built within a building or other structure to keep a fire from spreading from the room of origin to other parts of the building or other structures.

Compartmentation is only complete when doors, hardware and glass are fire and smoke resistance-rated; penetrations, head-of-wall and perimeter and expansion joints are sealed with firestopping insulation; and ductwork has fire, smoke, or fire-smoke dampers installed in walls.

When aspects of compartmentation are put into place, then lives can be saved during a fire by allowing time for people inside a structure to escape or allow time for safety forces to rescue people.

Noise Reduction Know-How

Many installation professionals are experts at evaluating noise-reduction needs and planning and installing sound-attenuation insulation applications for mechanical systems.

This type of insulation use can reduce and abate harmful noise at the source, including:

  • Load manufacturing process
  • Ejectors
  • Gear box casings
  • Steam and gas turbine housings
  • Compressor housings
  • Exhaust ducting
  • Pressure reducing valves
  • Custom sound curtains
  • Liquid chillers

Proper installation of these noise-reduction systems is essential to ensure maximum performance of the mechanical system as well as its acoustical function. Insulators offer the most effective solutions for sound attenuation due to their extensive job training.
