Fire Stopping

Fire Stopping is another key component of your passive fire protection. The following will help explain to you the importance and relevance of fire stopping and how we can help you. We work with a range of brands that produce high-quality fire stopping products such as fire collars, putties, fire sealants, and much more.

According to the National Fire Protection Association's report, unprotected vertical and horizontal penetrations provide one of the major contributing causes of the rapid, erratic spread of smoke and fire. These openings allowed the smoke to spread beyond the room in question and into occupied floors.

Fire Safety really shouldn’t be something you compromise. We all know that money can be tight, but if a fire did happen and you weren't compliant, we know one thing is for sure, it will cost you a lot more money, whether that is in court fees, fines or refurbishment of a fire damaged property. You've just got to think to yourself, how much are you willing to risk for saving that extra bit of cash? 

At Ventro we provide a range of fire safety products and services to make sure your building is fire safe, Fire stopping is just one of them. Fire Stopping is something Ventro excel at. Fire safety is all about the means at to which you can stop fires from spreading, and to keep them under control.

Fire Stopping is all about the means at to which you can stop fires from spreading, and to keep them under control. In a nutshell, it is a way to compartmentalise within a building that needs to be protected against the passage of fire or smoke.

A fire protection system that is made up of a variety of components used to seal joints in fire-resistant rated walls or floor assemblies.   There are different aspects of Fire Stopping from the types of materials you use to construct buildings, to the walls, the ceilings, and floors.

Passive Fire Stopping

What materials your building is made up of could potentially be the difference between a fire spreading, and a fire stopping.

Fire Stopping could be the type of material used in the installation that is thicker and helps reduce the burn-out time which ultimately prevents fires from spreading or sealants and coatings that can be used in construction that will help slow down the burning process.

- Fire Compartment Walls;

- Fire Doors;

- Access Hatches;

- Fire Pillows;

- Fire curtains etc.
