Firestopping Services

DB Contractors Firestop Division specializes in coordinating, installing, and inspecting firestop systems.

We understand that firestopping is an integral component of your fire prevention plan during building construction and is intended to help restrict the spread of a fire by containing it within a room or area of the building. We serve as your expert partner in this critical phase of construction to optimize the overall process and certify your results.

Areas of Expertise
DB Contractors firestop division specializes in coordinating, installing, and inspecting firestop systems. As a single source firestop contractor, we hold both the Factory Mutal Insurance Company (FM 4991 Approved), and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) firestop contractor certifications. Moreover, we are also members of the Firestop Contractors International Association (FCIA). Certificates available upon request. Our field-based specialty areas include key firestop installation systems:

  • Through & Membrane penetrations: Pipes, ducts, cable bundles, junction box, etc. through rated walls and floors
  • Fire resistant joint conditions: Horizontal or vertical joints at rated partitions or barriers, often found in corridors or stair enclosures
  • Perimeter fire barrier conditions: Edge of slab or curtain wall assemblies

The Fire Barrier Management software we provide on our projects offers top functionality for project management, documentation, and reporting. This interactive software allows for customized or standard reports, collaborative 2D Life safety floor plans, and captures multiple photos for each installed item. Projects are created and managed by our back-office team. We track and maintain firestop and fire protection systems throughout the construction and or maintenance phase of the facility.

3rd Party Firestop Inspection
Firestop inspection is an integral part of the overall firestopping process, as it helps verify that the contractor’s installation quality meets the test and listed system requirements. We take this process seriously and have the resources necessary to provide industry leading materials, engineering judgements and documentation files to assist our client through any inspection situation.
