FIRE CODE COMPLIANT PRODUCTS
Our Hilti firestop products conform to the most stringent international standards such as ASTM and EN.
Life safety is of key importance to us at Hilti and we have more than 30 years experience of research and development of passive fire protection systems.
We offer a wide range of approved products to cover a wide range of applications on the jobsite.
Firestop systems can help restore the rating of a wall, ceiling or floor as it’s penetrated by a cable, pipe or joint. It helps stop the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases and is all part of the life safety plan of buildings.
OUR FIRESTOP PRODUCTS IMPROVE BUILDING PERFORMANCE
Our Hilti firestop products can improve building structures as well as protect from fire. They’ve been tested beyond ETA and UL fire protection tests and can enhance:
- Building acoustics – by blocking up gaps, which also carry sound.
- Building movement – which can minimize post-earthquake impacts, thermal movement of piping systems, structural deflection or vibration in industrial facilities.
- Protect buildings from mold and mildew – we offer mold and mildew resistant products, which can be particularly helpful in the design of hospitals.
- Follow LEED and BREEAM certification for green building.
WE HELP YOU FROM PRE-PLANNING TO BUILDING APPROVAL
We can help you throughout your design and project, from pre-planning to construction and building approval.
We offer a technical library of information online including easy to cut and paste 2D drawings, approval documents, specifications, text and more.
You can also use our Hilti Button for Firestop design software and our extensive BIM/CAD library of Hilti products.
Our Hilti Button for Firestop automatically identifies penetrations, recommends firestop products with data attached and generates a bill of material – saving you time reading detailed codes and product specifications.
It makes complex design calculations easier and faster. It’s accurate, constantly updated and based on years of Hilti research and development data to offer optimized design solutions for your project.
