What is curtain wall firestop?
A curtain wall is a thin wall that is generally framed with aluminum and contains in-fills of metal panels, small stone, or glass. Although the curtain wall itself is not required to have a fire safety rating, by firestopping the joint between the slab edge and the curtain wall, the passage of smoke, fire, and gasses will be significantly slowed between floors. Our curtain wall firestop services provide long-lasting fire protection for your commercial or residential building.
