Barrier Management

Fire barriers, such as walls, ceilings, and floors designed to limit the spread of fire can provide additional time for building occupants to safely evacuate in an emergency. Maintaining this fire barrier integrity is absolutely paramount. Inadequately sealed or even unshielded fire barrier openings may result in a fire spreading.
Openings in fire barriers can be common, they can include the following:
  • Doors
  • Windows
  • Ductwork
  • Penetrations from pipes
  • Penetrations from cables

  • Since many buildings undergo constant modifications, fire barriers are frequently penetrated after their initial construction resulting in inadequately protected openings. Our fire barrier management service allows you to manage your facilities’ fire barriers through surveys, inspections, permitting, and thorough documentation. IST can ensure that penetrations are mended with listed fire stopping systems and we have a number of services tailored to meet your facilities specific needs.
