Penetration seal systems for fire stopping are a highly effective form of passive fire protection. They are used to thoroughly compartmentalise a building to prevent the spread of fire and smoke in a fire condition.
The importance of fire stopping service penetrations in a fire barrier when installed correctly it can assure occupants of a burning building, they can leave the building safely.
At MG Fire and Sound Solutions Ltd, we install premium products such as the Rockwool, Protecta, Promat and fire stopping products installed based on manufacturer’s instructions by our .
A service penetration that requires fire sealing, it can be a single cable, multiple data cables, heating pipes or airconditioning pipes. By using certified fire stopping solutions, such as ablative coated fire batts, intumescent acoustic sealant, high expansion sealant, intumescent wraps, pipe collars and fire compound load bearing floors, we create a fire-resistant surface, a complete penetration seal system.
When the combination of quality trained workforce is paired with use of high quality products, this provides complete peace of mind to our clients.
Steel Structure lose its design margin of safety at temperatures around 550 C. Tests have demonstrated the ability of the fire protection to remain in place, for the maximum duration for which protection may be required. The availability of thin and low weighted boards provided by Promat plus the possibility of prefabrication ensure maximum efficiency.
Partitions may be constructed in a variety of ways and the designer’s specification will depend on the intended use, performance levels and the standards of finish and appearance required. Partitions may be formed from various types of sheet materials, supported by and concealing timber or metal stud framework, with or without expressed/ featured joints. They may also be constructed by using composite panels supported by an exposed framework, or prefabricated panels, butted together in floor and head tracks, with or without a supporting frame.
Once a fire has become fully developed it attacks the structure of the compartment and tries to spread beyond the compartment of origin. A fire-rated (fire-resisting) partition prevents this by creating a structure (i.e., a compartment) which does not collapse and contains the fire for a given period of time. It is necessary to determine the fire resistance of the partition by assessing the behaviour when subjected to defined heating and pressure conditions, which may be encountered in a fully developed fire.
Fire Resistant ceiling system is required when there is gap between the elements of the building services (i.e. ductwork and piping) and the occupied space below. The distance between the underside of the timber joists and the suspended ceiling protecting the floor is critical. The greater the air cavity between the ceiling and the floor the better the fire performance.

Cavity barriers form a vital fire seal in the fabric of buildings, which in many cases is unseen but plays a vital role in containing fire and smoke within roof cavities at 20m divisions.
A cavity barrier can be a roof void barrier, underfloor cavity barrier suited to IT suites and offices with raised access flooring and an edge of slab fire protection detail between the building facade and the floor slab typically found in high rise residential buildings.
Our installation teams are trained to install products such as curtains, Rockwool mineral fibre curtains to contain the spread of fire and smoke from rising through a building, or passing under a floor affecting adjoining areas of a building.
Fire and Smoke Curtains can be installed in various buildings, from hospitals, offices, homes and schools, to airports, cinemas and shopping centres. Our range of fire and fire and smoke curtains offers 120 minutes integrity, smoke control and industry leading radiation performance, with the added peace of mind that full witness sampling and cyclic testing.
