STI Firestop in Healthcare Facilities

by Julie Clark on June 17, 2014

Fire Safety in Healthcare


From a smaller, one-building outpatient facility to a campus-sized hospital, fire safety is critical in all healthcare facilities. Unprotected openings in firewalls nullify their fire containment properties. Failing to seal wall or floor cable penetrations allows fire and smoke to spread through your facility. The best preventative measures, including smoke detectors, fire alarms and sprinklers, are useless when up against an uncontained fire. Firestop technology restores the safety ratings of your facility by filling any wall openings with fireresistant materials.

Accu-Tech and STI offer a wide range of firestop solutions, from mortars and caulk to firestop pillows and rubber compounds. We observe JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) standards to prevent the fines from random inspections of your facility. Our solutions can be customized to any unique situation to stabilize a building’s fire-resistant ratings, allowing occupants critical time to exit the building and for safety crews to arrive.



Accu-Tech specialists know that cabling moves, adds and changes may weaken existing firestop installations. During ongoing construction and MAC work in healthcare facilities, it is imperative to reseal openings. STI provides the firestop products needed to maintain the fire safety of your building, both during installation and when rerouting cables within your facility.
