Construction Joint Firestopping

Construction Joints Firestopping Services | Dubai

Construction joints, also known as expansion joints, are an integral part of any modern building, but are you aware that they can impact the damage caused by fires?

Joints that connect fire-rated walls, ceilings, and floors, are dynamic, which means that they expand and contract over time to allow for load variation, traffic, or seismic activity. Due to this movement, their integrity decreases and creates potential areas where smoke and toxic gasses can seep through.

With all these variables and different sizes, Fire Stop Middle East can provide a complete solution and take the warranty issue of the table. Construction joint firestopping typically can be as simple as a cover plate or as complex as requiring waterproofing, firestop and expansion joint coverplate. Typically different subcontractors are used and hence the warranty needs to covered by the main contractor. Fire Stop Middle East provides a complete solution taking the issue of estimating, stocking, installing and certifying installation.

How & Why We Firestop Construction Joints

The most obvious solution is to seal the joints shut, but you can’t just use any sealant for this task. The joints are still subjected to movement, so you need to use a material that can handle the stress while providing the protection you need. You also have to make sure that the sealant is applied properly to make sure that no space is left open.

So what can happen if you don't apply firestopping materials to construction joints? Failing to do so will not only reduce the efficiency of your fire barriers, but it can also affect the strength of your building’s construction joints. As such, it’s better to contact Firestop Middle East so we can properly seal all the construction joints on your property.
