Industry-Leading Fire Stopping Experts
Fire stopping is one of CLM Fireproofing's primary passive fire protection services. This involves inspecting building compartments, joints, pipes and ducts to identify whether or not they adhere to rigorous fire safety standards. We work with fastidious attention to detail, drawing on our expert knowledge of building compliance. With our years of experience in the construction industry, we also consider basic functions such as acoustic ratings and thermal properties as part of a robust passive fire protection system. Our clients have peace of mind knowing they are implementing effective fire protection solutions, as well as ensuring the correct installation of key structural features.

Fully-Compliant Penetration Sealing Systems
Major construction projects utilise a wide range of third-party specialists for the provision of basic services such as electricity, plumbing and broadband. For these services to be installed, teams will create service penetrations in walls, floors and ceiling voids. This will often involve the passage of wires, pipes and ventilation ducts through compartment walls or floors.
It is critical that any gaps or openings caused by service penetrations are protected using an acrylic sealant. Otherwise, the smallest amount of air leakage can allow flames and smoke to spread throughout a building. Our team uses penetration seals as part of a fully-compliant fire stopping strategy, reinforcing building elements and containing the spread of fire for enhanced risk management.
Fire Stopping for Compartmentation
Compartmentation is a critical aspect of fire safety design, and our team conduct compartmentation surveys to prevent the spread of flames and smoke. Any non-compliant service penetrations can jeopardise compartmentation systems, so we scrutinise varying structural elements, including walls, roof voids and cavity barriers.
Based on our years of experience and subject matter expertise, we can strengthen fire resistance and rectify instances of non-compliance. We offer an array of products and solutions for fire stopping and penetration sealing, including barriers, sealants, putty pads, calcium silicate boards and batts. We maintain close relationships with product manufacturers so we can consistently recommend the best solution for fully-compliant fire stopping.Learn More
