Put your commercial building safety first by installing firestop protection from TruTeam, including slab-edge and head-of-wall firestopping. Gaps between floor slabs and walls can provide space for gas, smoke, and flames to move from room to room and floor to floor. Installing firestopping products is critical to a commercial building’s safety plan. Contact TruTeam for more information.
Commercial firestopping is required by state and local building and fire codes. TruTeam’s local firestopping experts can help advise commercial builders on ways to install firestop products to meet and exceed these code requirements, with the ultimate goal of building a safer structure that is completed on budget and on time. Firestopping is often required at through penetrations, membrane penetrations, and joint and perimeter barriers.
Fire and smoke can move between rooms through the gap that exists at the perimeter slab edge of a commercial building. However, the floor’s fire-resistance rating can be improved with slab edge firestop products installed by TruTeam. At the top of a wall, there is often a gap that can also allow fire and smoke to spread. Head-of-wall firestopping consists of a fire resistant compound that is installed to fill these gaps.
