Professional Fire Retardant Seals

What are Fire Retardant Seals? 

Fire retardant seals are a form of passive fireproofing which, once installed, are used to slow or prevent the spread of a fire or reduce its intensity. This allows for the safe evacuation of people, while helping to contain the fire until fire services arrive.  Fire retardant seals are used for fire rating exterior and interior construction joints, concrete panels and block work, as well as for sealing gaps around service penetrations of walls, ceilings, floor and other structural components of a building to accommodate the installation of communication cables, plumbing services and electrical services, etc.  The installation of passive fireproofing in a building or structure limits the spread of smoke and fire and prevents structural collapse; passive fireproofing in buildings and structures is a requirement under the Building Code of Australia.
