Pipe Penetration Firestop
When new mechanical, HVAC, and plumbing systems are installed, it is almost always necessary to make new openings in floors, walls, and/or ceilings, which leaves the possibility of vulnerability in the case of a fire or other emergency. Pipe penetration firestop provides protection you can trust and restores the fire safety rating of your fire separations in compliance with all necessary local codes and safety regulations. Proper pipe penetration firestopping will also lessen the travel of ambient noise.
At Firestop, we have extensive experience providing pipe penetration firestop services throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Virginia. We are a division of G&M Services, which tackles concrete coring, drilling, and sawing jobs, while Firestop is an expert installer of firestop products.
What is pipe penetration firestop?
Pipe penetration firestop systems are created from several components that provide protection when they are used to seal openings created by pipe penetrations in fire-rated floors and/or walls. By adding an acoustical seal when installing pipe penetration firestop, the STC value of your assembly can be maintained and the transfer of sound kept to a minimum.
The specific pipe penetration firestop product used will differ depending on the type of material the wall or floor is composed of. They can be waterproof or have the ability to flex with joints, depending on the needs of the project.
