Firestop and Smokeseal

LMCT in the Asbestos Abatement Industry

Firestopping Saves Live and Property

Properly installed firestopping saves lives and can prevent property damage. Over the years, properly installed firestopping has been proven to contain fire and smoke, which gives building occupants time to evacuate a structure after a fire occurs.

When a fire breaks out in a compartmentalized structure, firestopping helps keep the smoke and fire from spreading outside of a certain area. However, if the firestopping material is not properly installed, a fire can spread throughout a building, endangering the lives of everyone inside the structure.

Trust the Mechanical Insulation LMCT Firestop contractors to deliver quality project management, superior value and a project installed using the proper firestop and smoke systems for building integrity and occupancy safety.

Additionally, the LMCT can provide firestopping training to architects, fire marshals, code inspectors or any other interested organizations to help save lives and property.

Why use Firestopping?

Most fire and building codes require firestopping.

Properly installed firestop systems are imperative to safe, compartmentalized buildings, while improperly installed systems can leave building occupants with a false sense of security.
