In the event of a fire, it's crucial to have reliable fire-resistant measures in place, especially when it comes to the penetrations through compartment walls. This is where Nullifire’s FP220 Service Sleeve shines, offering a solution to protect these openings and prevent the spread of fire, smoke, and toxic gases.
The Importance of Service Sleeves in Fire Safety and Passive Fire Protection: Service sleeves play a vital role in maintaining the integrity and insulation of fire barriers and compartmentalization within buildings. When pipes and cables pass through walls, they create potential pathways for fire to travel, compromising the effectiveness of fire-rated constructions and the safety of its occupants. When exposed to fire, service sleeves expand, reinstating the fire performance of compartment walls. So, by using a high-quality service sleeve like FP220, you can rest assured that these openings are adequately protected, reducing the risk of fire spread and providing crucial evacuation time.
