    Fire Stopping

    Fire stopping is the act of sealing any openings, gaps or avenues through which a fire can spread. This forms part of your passive fire protection plan and here at Scutum London, we can help you ensure your premises are fully protected.

    All construction in commercial property utilises fire compartmentalisation, helping to trap fire and smoke, allowing people to evacuate safely in a timely manner. Whether your building has been refitted for you to move into or you’ve had works carried out as part of a refurbishment, this could undermine your passive fire protection plan, meaning fire and smoke can spread quickly between building compartments.

    What does fire stopping involve?

    During fire stopping surveys, our specialists can detect those areas which are vulnerable from the spread of fire. Common areas which can often require sealing include:

    • Joints or gaps between walls and floors
    • Openings around pipes, cables and beams
    • Newly drilled holes
    • Holes left by the removal of components

    Using a variety of materials, these gaps, holes and often overlooked areas can be sealed to restore compartmentalisation of your building.

    Who is responsible for fire stopping?

    As the owner or manager of your space, it is your responsibility to ensure your property is safe and fully protected against fire. Refit companies and technicians hold no responsibility to protect the seal of your building compartments, making you liable if a fire occurs and spreads.
