What Sets Fireproofing Apart from Fire Stopping?
Being a leading construction estimating provider, we understand the critical importance of fire safety measures in construction projects. Fireproofing and fire-stopping are two key aspects of passive fire protection essential to ensure the safety of buildings and their occupants. Many estimating providers fail to comprehend the critical differences between the two, and their clients end up with wrong estimations. But our professionals deeply understand how to make calculations for these two different things.
Fireproofing involves the use of various insulation materials that are designed to resist the effects of fire. These materials are used to create fire-rated walls, floors, and ceilings that can contain the spread of flames and smoke in the event of a fire. Our estimators calculate the required insulation material for the entire construction project to ensure that the budget planning is accurate and comprehensive.
On the other hand, fire-stopping means sealing the joints and gaps in the fire-rated walls, floors, and ceilings with fire-resistant materials. It prevents the spread of fire and smoke through these gaps and maintains the fire rating of the building. We consider the type and amount of firestop material required for the project to protect the building. We use various firestop materials, including silicon and firestop pillows, to ensure the facility meets fire safety standards. After analysis, we provide detailed information on the entire process, including the type of materials needed and the estimated cost of the project.
What Does Our Fireproofing and Fire Stopping Estimating Services Encompass?
Our fireproofing/fire-stopping estimating services encompass the evaluation of fire resistance ratings, application techniques, and material selection for building elements. There are several things which are needed to be fireproofed. Cable trays and actuators
- Ducts and flanges
- Steel, beams, and columns
- LPG containers
- Pipelines and pipe joints
- Floor, walls, roof, and ceilings
- Vessels and tanks
Let’s, discuss some crucial of them.
Structural Steel Beams and Columns
When estimating fire stopping, we focus on carefully fixing beams and columns, which are highly vulnerable to fire damage. The most commonly used insulation material is spray foam insulation to achieve fire resistance. However, we also recognize the value of stainless steel in fireproofing. Stainless steel boasts excellent oxidation resistance, making it ideal for fire protection in beams and columns. We prioritize using high-quality, fire-resistant materials to ensure the safety and longevity of our client’s construction projects.
Pipelines and Pipe Joints
Our professionals understand the importance of fire safety in piping systems, as they can often be a source of fire hazards. We offer fireproof casing solutions to mitigate this risk to make your pipes fire-resistant. While the lines cannot be made fireproof, our casing will provide an added layer of protection. We also use a standard method of uniting pipe joints, ensuring they are tightly sealed to prevent potential fire hazards—Trust Federal Estimating to provide the highest quality piping solutions for your construction project.
Floor, Walls, Roof, and Ceilings
A building’s floor, walls, roof, and ceilings are integral components of a single unit. To ensure their safety, we emphasize the importance of fireproofing and insulating them. Our experienced fireproofing estimating professionals meticulously calculate every detail, including packing holes and cavities with insulation material. The most widely used insulation method is batt insulation, but other methods are available depending on the preferences of the construction team. Hence, our estimators assess the insulation process and calculate the required materials.
What Varieties of Fireproofing Methods Exist?
Different fireproofing methods are available, depending on the materials and applications the constructor prefers. Some of the commonly used methods include
- Cellulose insulation
- Welding blankets
- Spray fireproofing
- Mineral wool
Guniting involves spraying a mix of cement, sand, and water on a surface. Cellulose insulation is made from recycled materials and is blown onto surfaces. Fibreglass is a lightweight and versatile option. Welding blankets protect welding operations. While spray fireproofing involves spraying a fire-resistant material onto surfaces. Mineral wool is a dense, fire-resistant material.
