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 legal requirement.

Passive fire protection systems are designed to stop the spread of flames, smoke and toxic gases in a fire.

They 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 code compliant firestop products, design software and technical support to help design and specify firestop systems.

HOW TO DESIGN AN EFFICIENT FIRE PROTECTION SYSTEM

Hilti firestop Cast-in Device rebar

Passive fire protection systems are designed to block flames, smoke and toxic gases spreading through a building by blocking gaps in fire-rated walls, ceilings and floors.

If just one of these gaps leaks, then the fire protection system is no longer efficient.

When designing passive fire protection systems it’s therefore important to use a range of firestop solutions and not just one product. This helps you to:

  • Ensure all the gaps are blocked in a fire-rated area, and that these penetrations work together to stop the spread of fire.
  • Find firestop products, which can work for a wide range of sizes and shapes of cables, pipes, joints and penetration holes.

Our Hilti firestop products conform to both international and local fire safety codes AS1530.4 & AS4072.1.

They’re easy to install and inspect.  They’re also made out of intumescent materials, which expand during a fire to close up gaps formed when materials melt..

OUR FIRESTOP PRODUCTS IMPROVE BUILDING PERFORMANCE

Our Hilti firestop products do more than protect against fire. They’re also designed to:

  • Improve building acoustics – by blocking up gaps, which also carry sound.
  • Improve building movement – which can minimize post-earthquake impacts, thermal movement of piping systems, structural deflection or vibration in industrial facilities.
  • Protect buildings from mold and mildew – our Hilti firestop products are fungus resistant. This can be particularly helpful in the design of hospitals.
  • Improve your sustainability and green building rating – we offer information about our products, such as VOC content, for LEED and BREEAM certification.
