What YOU need to KNOW!
Knowing when to schedule firestop scope is the largest area of concern. Pre-planning and collaboration is key to a cost-effective installation.
Traditionally, multiple trades have installed firestop systems, with little attention to compliance with standards, codes and documentation.
US Industry estimates 56% - 58% of most firestop systems are non-compliant. Although studies have not been done in Canada, experts say that these numbers are similar to what Canadian statistics would be.
Smoke spreads rapidly through openings in walls and floors. Nearly 70% of all building related deaths are directly associated with smoke inhalation.
