Penetrations In Fire Rated Systems
Penetrations through fire rated construction can allow premature spread of fire from one firecell to another if not correctly designed, specified or installed. Poorly installed penetrations can compromise the Fire Resistance Rating (FRR) of GIB® systems, and in turn affect the building’s design for Protection from Fire, potentially impacting on the health and safety of occupants and fire fighters.
Resolve and specify fire penetration solutions in the design office rather than on the building site. Combine services in service ducts and shafts which can themselves be fire rated, eliminating the need for many different and individual penetration seals.
