Trusted Firestop Experts. Leave No Gaps.
Download Our Free Whitepaper ‘Bridging the gap – raising standards in fire stopping specification and installation.’
Despite playing a pivotal role in passive fire protection, cavity barriers are often a hidden part of the construction process. There is discrepancy around who is responsible for specifying these systems with generic ones often chosen instead of stipulating a specific manufacturer or system type, which regularly results in inconsistencies in safety standards.
In this whitepaper we explore how to raise these standards and highlight four practical recommendations to address the gaps that are perpetuating the unsafe and inconsistent installation of systems. It also includes calls for the introduction of a nationally recognised, accredited installer programme.
“Ensuring cavity barrier systems provide the correct level of protection relies on a collective and responsible approach by manufacturers, specifiers, installers and building owners.”
“As the industry expert we are determined to lead the way, by driving the changes needed across the industry to improve standards and eliminate the ineffective and unsafe specification and installation of cavity barrier systems.”
