A skilled passive fire stopper should have the required skills to:

  • identify and safely use the access equipment such as podium, tower or scissor lift
  • achieve the required fire rating according to specifications

Thus, an experienced passive fire stopper must demonstrate the ability and knowledge to carry out the appropriate tasks in a safe manner, according to the general site guidelines.

  • firestop walls/floors using compound or fire batt and mastic
  • apply intumescent coatings to surfaces using brush or roller
  • install encasements around service pipes, columns or steel beams
  • apply non-reactive spray coatings
  • install cavity barriers
  • erect fire-resisting walls and linings (partitions)
