An uncontrolled fire is a terrifying beast. Fire is a force of destruction that once ignited, can wreak havoc and completely destroy your home, business, or building. It spreads rapidly and there are very few ways to stop its destruction without the help of the fire department. However, there are preventive measures that can be taken to calm a fire, such as using firestop technology. Firestop can help protect your property from fire damage by utilizing fireproof and fire-retardant materials to help keep you and anyone who may find themselves in a raging fire safe. If you wish to keep your property safe, here is why you should invest in firestop technology.
Limits Spread of Fire and Smoke
Part of the danger of fire is how quickly the flames and smoke can spread. If you are fortunate enough to avoid touching the flames, you are still likely to inhale a worrisome amount of smoke. Firestop technology can help prevent fire and smoke from spreading by utilizing fire-resistance materials to stop them from spreading through openings in the walls, doors, floor, or ceiling.
Minimized Installation Times
It is near impossible to predict when a fire could potentially breakout. That is why if you find yourself without the proper firestop technologies already in place, you will not have to worry much about how long it will take for firestop technology to be installed in your home or business. As modern technology continues to advance, installers are able to further minimize the amount of time and efficiency in which firestop technology can be installed in the field, while also meeting the demands of growing, new fields. Making the whole process easier and quicker.
Tested and Approved
Firestop systems come with UL ratings given to them. A UL rating indicates that the materials have been tested, approved, and ready to be installed to keep help minimize the damages of a potential fire. The UL rating can indicate how long the barrier can withstand the flames, how much smoke and air can pass through the wall penetrations, as well as measure other factors of the potential penetrations and safety concerns.
