Through-Penetration Firestopping

Approximately 1 hour

Passive firestop systems help prevent the spread of fire, smoke, and toxic gas through openings created by penetrations and gaps between walls or floors/ceilings in fire-rated construction. The firestopping of openings re-establishes the integrity and fire rating of a wall, floor, or assembly and aids in the protection of escape routes. This course identifies the main through-penetration firestop technologies, evaluates the materials and products that are used to firestop through penetrations in commercial applications, and discusses industry fire testing standards.

Presented by Paul Engen, Ph.D. on behalf of 3M Industrial and Safety Market Center.
