Where fire rated compartments are created to contain fire to the area it originates in, there will always be a requirement for services to pass through these barriers. These service penetrations create a weak point that can allow the fire to escape for the compartment. Promat Australia have developed an array of solutions to protect these openings.
STI has a complete line of products and systems for the industrial and utility environment. Firestopping challenges in the power generation and industrial environment require the performance and expertise that only STI products and people can provide. Cable Tray and Large Power Cables are commonplace in these environments, and only STI has the most complete line of tested and listed firestopping systems for large cable trays and power cables up to kcmil!

How do you maintain the flexibility to adapt to ever-changing infrastructure demands—such as evolving cable penetration configurations in electrical, telecom, datacom and healthcare applications—without compromising firestop ratings or protection against smoke migration?
To create a comprehensive passive fire protection system, all gaps in walls, floors and ceilings need to be fire stopped to prevent the spread of flames, smoke and toxic gases. These holes vary in size from single cables through to cable bundles, cable trays, ducts and pipes of varying shapes and sizes. Gaps can also be designed-in to accommodate structural movement within the building.
Firestopping solutions are used, in combination with a various range of materials and components, to seal joints, openings and penetrations in fire rated resistance walls, or floor systems. Firestops are implemented to restore the fire resistance rating and maintain the fire resistance qualities of such passive fire protection systems, reducing the spread of fire and filling the penetrations with fire resistant methods and products. Unprotected openings in fire separations make your fire resistance wall obsolete in terms of fire resistance rating, and ultimately provide fire an unimpeded route to spread and damage your assets.

A firestop or fire-stopping is a form of passive fire protection that is used to seal around openings and between joints in a fire-resistance-rated wall or floor assembly. Firestops are designed to maintain the fireproofing of a wall or floor assembly allowing it to impede the spread of fire and smoke. Firestops prevent unprotected horizontal and vertical penetrations in a fire-resistance-rated wall or floor assembly from creating a route by which fire and smoke can spread that would otherwise have been fire resisting construction, e. Fire stopping is also to seal around gaps between fire resisting constructions, e.
Penetrations in fire-rated construction can allow spread of fire and smoke from one firecell to another if they are not correctly tested, specified or installed. It is always recommended to resolve and specify fire rated service penetrations in the design office rather than on-site. For proprietary systems contact the relevant penetration seal supplier.
