WHY FIRE PROTECTION IS IMPORTANT
Firestop regulations, life safety and fire containment
Fire protection systems can save lives and contain damage to a building during a fire.
They’re also a code requirement
Passive fire protection systems are designed to impede the spread of flames, smoke and toxic gases in a fire.
They help block gaps in walls, ceilings and floors caused by penetrations from pipes, cables and joints in fire-rated areas.
So it’s important to include passive fire protection – firestop systems – in any building design, right from the start of a project.
At Hilti we offer a wide range of model code compliant firestop products, design software and technical support to help design and specify firestop systems.
