Fire compartmentation

Enclosures: Fireproof plates and panels are used to provide a building with fire resistant systems: ventilation ducts, fire doors, etc.
Fireproof seals: used for fire protection, they prevent fire, flammable gases and high temperatures from passing from one area to another in the fire sector of the building through the openings of the installation passages. In fire compartmentation it is mandatory to seal all types of openings, penetrations, cables and pipes.
