Mechanical Systems Firestopping

Mechanical Systems Firestopping in Dubai, UAE

Whenever a fire breaks out, most people will use a fire extinguisher or wait for the sprinklers to quell the flames. Although these devices can actively put out the fire, they can’t do much once the fire has already engulfed a large part of the building.

As such, property owners need to equip systems that can snuff out or control the spreading of the flames. One most recommended and effective approach is to install a firestop system.

A firestop system is designed to compartmentalize fire and smoke in their areas of origin. This way, it can minimize the effects of fire damage and allow evacuees to vacate the premises safely. However, it can’t protect you or your building effectively if the firestopping equipment is installed incorrectly. It’s crucial that the sealant is applied to certain areas of your property, just like the mechanical systems.

How Mechanical Firestopping Helps

The mechanical systems (e.g. pipes and air ducts) are typically installed through penetration. During construction, builders need to create openings to let the equipment pass through. Unfortunately, there are many professionals who tend to forget to close the spaces between the wall and the firestop system.

If these holes remain open, smoke and toxic gasses can easily pass through. However, by covering the gaps with a special fire-resistant firestopping sealant, they have a greater chance of blocking hazardous substances from infiltrating adjacent rooms.
