Why Fire – Stopping is so important in Fire Protection..
Inadequate Fire- Stopping for wires and cables are a big cause of many Fires starting in a consumer units or fed between rooms from walls, ceilings or floors. In the event that electrical cables overheat, fires can spread rapidly, resulting in severe damage to buildings and in worst-case scenarios, multiple fatalities. Fire-stopping products are manufactured with Intumescent, which provides an effective seal to prevent fires and smoke from spreading. Compartmentalising fires and harmful smoke allows occupants to safely evacuate a building via a fire escape route and lower the risk to property damage.
