Firestopping in Edmonton
Walser Contracting provides expert firestopping services in Edmonton and Western Canada. Firestopping can be best explained as the sealing of any openings to prevent fire, smoke, or heat from passing through multiple building areas. The objective is to contain the spread of a fire by creating fire resisting compartments, which then subdivide the building both vertically and horizontally. Buildings must ensure that any openings and gaps are fire stopped to restrict both lateral and vertical spread of fire. Whether you want to renovate your current structure or build a new one, our fire-stopping materials will give it added protection.
Edmonton Firestop Caulking & Additional Options
Firestopping materials seal construction joints and openings in your structure. When a disaster strikes, these materials slow the spread of destructive substances, including fire, heat smoke, and toxic or combustible gasses.
Products used to help with firestop are:
Our spray, block, caulk, and other products come from quality suppliers like Hilti. They not only prevent fire and gases from spreading but also enhance the structure’s integrity. It is important, as fire weakens the entire structure and compromises building joints and other critical construction areas. With our fire-stopping products, we will eliminate these problems.
We use multiple solutions to ensure the safety of your building and its occupants. We know that each building has different needs, so we will adapt our products and services to make your building as secure as possible.

FIRE SAFETY IN WESTERN CANADA
Firestopping matters just as much as fire detection and prevention if you want to keep your building safe. Smoke detectors, sprinkler systems, and other safety mechanisms protect coworkers, loved ones, equipment, and belongings. Add our fire stopping solutions to your building to give occupants even more time to exit.
Ultimately, the selection and correct installation of a firestop can potentially save people’s lives. It is imperative to involve qualified parties to ensure that adequate fire stopping solutions are determined and implemented. All buildings are different, so it is essential to consider this when selecting the proper product and application methods. With variations in construction situations, the firestop solution will also vary, so you need to ensure that you have a professional that understands this and doesn’t just look to repeat the products and process from their last job.
With a wide range of fire protection products that are now required by building regulations, it can be challenging to understand which ones you need. The direct answer is, likely, all of them. A functional firestop system happens when a combination of products are all working together. Without the use of one single product, the rest of the fireproofing system could fail. Our technicians are all Hilti trained, and we can install these products on a small or large scale.
