The Importance of Fire-Stopping Examined
Fire-Stopping insulation is part of effective compartmentation: “boxes” built within a
building or other structure to keep fire from spreading from the room of origin to other
parts of the building or other structure.
Compartmentation is complete when doors, hardware and glass are fire and smoke
resistance-rated; penetrations, head-of-wall and perimeter and expansion joints are
sealed with Fire-Stopping insulation; and ductwork has fire, smoke, or fire-smoke dampers installed in walls.
