Firestopping for Modular Construction

September 21st @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Firestopping is clearly defined in all model building codes and is essential to life safety. Passive containment is necessary to contain fire and smoke to their point of origin. This presentation covers code compliant design and contractor coordination for modular firestopping. We will be discussing a “system approach” to mechanical, plumbing and electrical through penetrations as well as protecting construction joints and marriage points. Product installation recommendations and techniques for firestop devices (in-factory) and wet seals (on-site) will be highlighted and we will conclude with a discussion on the engineering judgement process and the future of modular fire testing.

Learning Objective 1:
Define the main types of firestop systems.

Learning Objective 2:
Describe a system approach to managing firestop compliance.

Learning Objective 3:
Recognize the basics of life safety design, such as when, where and why to firestop.

Learning Objective 4:
Identify codes and standards and discover the necessary steps to compliant design.
