Firestopping

Firestopping is one of the fastest changing scopes of work in construction.  Testing is continually improving the technology and application of systems which means your firestop contractor needs to be informed in real time.  DIV1 is meeting this challenge through continuous education and training and maintaining relationships with manufacturers such as Specialized Technologies, Hilti and 3M.

When a fire separation like a floor or wall has openings in it due to pipe and wire holes it loses its fire resistance rating.  By using firestop systems incorporating endothermic and intumescent caulking, firestop collars, and other devices we can give back that rating to the satisfaction of the latest regulations and testing.

All firestop systems are tested in a controlled environment using large furnaces by accredited third parties.  When a system meets the required fire resistance rating the third party testing agency can then list it. 

Products do not have fire ratings.  Complete assemblies have ratings.

DIV1 considers this potential for change at the onset of every submittal package; assemblies are checked to ensure they are proven systems well before any installations take place.

Caulking

Caulking is one of the final touches of a project.  It is often cosmetic but also serves an important purpose.  Disease and Infection control is often overlooked and requires experienced workers and specialized products to meet health standards.  DIV1 workers have the training and experience required to complete large scale disease and infection control contracts efficiently and with high quality.
