Fire-stopping systems are used to prevent fire in a particular floor from spreading to other floors. This is accomplished by sealing openings and joints through which fire could spread to other floors. Basically, there are four types of openings / joints to which tested fire-stopping systems are applied to prevent the spread of gasses, smoke and fire. These are:
- Joints between construction components. These includes wall/wall, wall/floor, and wall/ceiling joints.
- Floor perimeters – slab edges and exterior wall cavities.
- Penetrations, including openings for mechanical, electrical, structural, security, communications, piping and wiring circuits.
- Openings with no penetrations
