Passive Fire Protection is a containment product or system that is an integral part of any construction, building or structure that prevents the spread of fire or smoke through intentional apertures that can contain penetrating services.
Passive Fire Products are designed in a way to prevent fire or smoke spread for intended periods of time to meet standards set out in architectural designs and drawings or fire strategy drawings to meet fire codes and regulations.
Products and systems are vigorously tested by manufactures to make sure they meet fire codes and regulation. At Truecut we pride our self in our high standard of work, making sure all installs meet manufactures tested standards and details.
All our workforce are approved and NVQ certified CSCS/CITB operatives and have completed courses in First Aid, Manual Handling, Working at Height, Harness, Confined Space, PASMA, IPAF, SSSTS, Asbestos Awareness and CTC Clearance. All our operatives are Enhanced DBS checked. We take great pride in the fact that the equipment we use is the very latest and most up to date available on the market. Here at Truecut we are constantly coming up with innovative ideas and solutions for all your Fire Stopping requirements.
Should you require any of our services for any current or future projects, please email enquiries to:
Where services pass through separating elements and/or compartment walls or floors, there is also a clear potential for compartment breach unless specific tested measures are taken to prevent it.
Systems are designed to provide the required resistance at the point of service penetration or joint for fire resistance period detailed maintaining the compartmentation.
Where required air sealing, sound reduction and water permeability is also achievable.
Installation of Intumescent Batt, Mastic, High Pressure Expansion Sealant, Intumescent Pipe Wraps, Intumescent Pillows to seal services passing through apertures in fire walls or floors to achieve the required fire rating.
Fire resistant compound to load bearing apertures to give fire integrity to the required fire rating and/or acoustic protection.
Installation of fire resistant prefabricated pipe collars to provide a high volume expansion and pressure seal during a fire to combustible pipes that pass through floors and wall service openings and to achieve the require fire rating.
Intumescent Linear Gap Seals are to provide a versatile means of sealing junctions between building elements against fire penetration (expansion joints, seals to tops of block work to slab above)
Air Sealing is to provide a versatile means of sealing junctions between building elements to prevent the spread of smoke
Acoustic Sealing is the use of products to provide the require DB rating to meet building requirements.
Installation of cavity barrier insulation to protect the voids between the outer façade and the inner construction element of buildings to achieve the required fire rating and compartmentation.
