Fire Protection Systems
Everything You Need To Know About Fire Protection Systems
Fire safety is a critical part for business owners. A fire can spark and spread in a matter of seconds. Businesses that invest in fire safety systems secure significant benefits when the systems function as expected in the events of the fire. These systems reduce damage to the building, expensive equipment, documents, inventory, and most importantly occupants. Fire suppression systems, smoke detectors, and sprinkler systems are all sorts of fire protection systems that help detect fires, help fire control, protect inhabitants and equipment in the building.
Advantages of Fire Protection Systems
Reduce The Risk Of Death with Fire Products
By installing Fire Coating Painting, Fir Barrier Coatings, Fire Barrier Foam, etc you create a safe passage for both your property and its occupants. Properties that have both fire alarms and Fire suppression systems have a considerably low risk of fire-related death.
Save Lives with Fire Products
The active fire safety system ensures that no one is trapped inside the setting when a fire breaks out. The protection system can help provide a passage for people to safely evacuate even if there isn’t an obvious fire exit. The best approach to keep your building and the people inside it safe in the event of a fire is to use a Complete Fire Safety System.
Reducing The Risk Of Damage To Your Property
When the fire brigade sprays water into your setting, it can inflict irreparable harm to the property’s aesthetic as well as its structure. Fire Protection Systems are installed in commercial properties that consume a small amount of water, causing less damage when activated than a fire engine’s powerful hose.
Increase The Value Of Your Property
While there is an initial fee associated with having the system installed, it can be worthwhile if you plan to put the commercial place on sale. For any type of buyer, commercial properties with Fire Safety Products installed are a much more appealing and beneficial purchase.

FIRE BARRIER MORTAR
3M™ Fire Barrier Mortar is a lightweight gypsum-based and heat-absorbing firestop that is ready to be mixed with potable water.
How does it work?
3MTM Fire Barrier Mortar stops the fire penetrations through the fire-rated floor or wall assemblies, as well as other fire-rated interior building construction. It has exceptional adherence to a wide range of construction penetrants.
It also works as a heat sink, absorbing heat from penetrants and lowering the risk of vulnerable matter igniting on the unexposed side of the assembly.
Our 3M Fire Barrier Mortar (PDF, 279.8 Kb) is a ready-to-mix solution for mechanical and electrical penetrations where the penetrants may generate heat. The firestop mortar (PDF, 400 Kb) is ready to mix with potable water, making it quick and inexpensive to use.
Our 3M Fire Barrier Mortar can be blended to a thinner consistency for self-leveling applications such as flooring or as a non-sag material for vertical walls. It adheres well to a wide range of construction materials as Concrete, metals, wood, plastic, and cable jacketing.
Firestop tested for up to 3 hours.
Fire Dam Coating
• With fire rating up to 4 hours for penetration seals, Fire Dam coating protects cables and cable trays. Its important function is suppressing the formation of destructive, toxic gasses and smoke emissions from the exposure of PVC cables to high temperatures exposed during a fire. It controls the spread of flames along with electrical setups. The wires coated with Fire Dam Coating also remain safe by not catching fire. The recommended wet thickness is 3mm.
• Flexible coating.
• Halogen-free formula that does not give off corrosive gases in a fire
• Firm adhesion to most surfaces.
• Spray, trowel, or brush applied.
• Water cleanup of tools and equipment.

Metals are prone to expansion in the event of a fire, which can result in the collapse of the entire structure of the building. 3M Fire Spray creates a flexible seal that can withstand the metal up to 25% compression or expansion. An airless sprayer is used for the application and an ⅛ inch (3mm) thick coating is preferred. It is water-based, marks IBC-requirements, and has a fire rating for up to four hours.
• Remains flexible allowing for typical pipe movement.
• Water-based for easy application, cleanup, and disposal.
• Endothermic fillers absorb heat and release water.
• The High-solids formula means limited shrinkage.
• No solvents.
• Available in 3 colors for easy identification or integration with a substrate.
• Multi-viscosity grade offers excellent sealant properties.
Fire rating-For up to four hours.
FIRE BARRIER SEALANT
Self-leveling, ready-to-use, single component, neutral cure, elastomeric silicone firestop that also acts as a barrier to water leakage and airborne sound transmission.
3M™ Fire Barrier Sealant CP 25WB+ is a high-performance, ready-to-use, gun-grade, latex-based, intumescent sealant that dries to form a monolithic firestop seal that also acts as a barrier to airborne sound transmission.
It helps control the spread of fire, smoke, and noxious gasses before, during, and after exposure to a fire when installed as prescribed.
As penetrants are exposed to fire, this material’s unique intumescent feature allows it to expand and help to maintain a firestop penetration seal for up to 4 hours.
