Firestop is a certified rubber based passive fire protection technology that protects structures from exceeding critical temperature limits. The dampening, noise reducing flexible nature of Firestop™ protects equipment from vibrations, collisions, explosions and even earthquakes. It withstands a blast up to 2.1 bars and is jet fire resistant for more than 2 hours. Firestop™ is suitable for use in arctic and cold climate environments from -50°C.
The main purpose of Firestop™ as a passive fire protection material is to protect personnel and equipment by minimizing fire escalation. It provides time to evacuate people, close down critical equipment and for responders to gain control of the fire.
