Penetration Seals Fire Protection

Fire resisting compartments are created to contain fire and smoke from spreading within building structures. However, the principle of compartmentation can also present a parallel threat as most concealed cavities between fire resisting walls and floors are interlinked. The importance of sealing gaps in this type of construction is therefore vital to ensure the compartmentation systems work to their maximum ability to save life and property. Such gaps are typically at service penetrations through walls and floors but would also include gaps left for structural movement and gaps left due to poor workmanship.

The development of effective solutions to seal gaps at service penetrations has increased over the past few years and Promat has become a world leader in supplying such solutions. Note should be taken that every service passing through fire resistant building elements react in different ways to fire, so there is no single solution or product that will protect all services.
