Fire Stopping Insulation
Industry-wide, the Indiana-Illinois Insulation Industry is also at the forefront of an increased focus on the importance of properly installing Fire Stopping insulation materials through standardized and proper design, installation, inspection and maintenance.
The Indiana-Illinois Insulation Industry provides customers with peace of mind by expertly crafting and properly installing the most modern fire-protection technology available.
Fire Stopping insulation is part of effective compartmentation: “boxes” built within a building or other structure to keep fire from spreading from the room of origin to other parts of the building or other structure.
Compartmentation is complete when doors, hardware and glass are fire and smoke resistance-rated; penetrations, head-of-wall and perimeter and expansion joints are sealed with fire stopping insulation; and ductwork has fire, smoke, or fire-smoke dampers installed in walls.
