A common misunderstanding of firestops is that certain materials have specific fire ratings. On the contrary, firestop materials are only a single component of the overall firestop.
System tested by UL or other third-party testing agencies. The firestop assembly includes all of the building components required to achieve or maintain the specified fire-resistive rating.
Made of high-temperature acrylic or silicone, these sealants are used around penetrations such as pipes, around doors or at joints between adjoining surfaces to prevent smoke and gases from spreading.
Collars: These are installed on flues, pipes, ducts and similar assemblies to contain flames and prevent them from spreading to another room.

Are becoming an increasingly popular way of achieving a fire rating on exposed structural steel. Intumescent fireproofing are thin film coatings designed for exposed applications where appearance is of primary importance. This fireproofing comes in solvent and water based formulations and provides up to a three hour rating on beams and columns. These coatings can be used for both interior and exterior fireproofing applications providing the owner and architect with an aesthetically pleasing way to fireproof structural steel. The product can be top coated with a tinted coating to match almost any desired colo.

Coring concrete is the process of drilling or cutting through concrete. We use top-of-the-range diamond drills to cut cylinders of concrete from a structure. The diamond drills are attached to steel tubes that are secured to the surface with a bolt, anchor, or vacuum seal for better stability. The final step of coring concrete is removing the slug to leave a perfect hole with zero cosmetic damage and no after-care maintenance.
Our diamond bits and concrete drills can cut at any angle, whether horizontal or vertical. We cut holes in different sizes from 0.5 inches in diameter and drill to virtually any depth. The process is dust-free, non-percussive, and low-noise – making it the most popular choice for core concrete cutting. This is especially useful for structurally sensitive locations and confined spaces.
Application for Core Drilling:
ore drilling is commonly used for structural, electrical, and plumbing installations.
Our core drilling contractors perform these services for a range of applications including:
- Sewer drains
- HVAC openings
- Floor drains
- Sewer tie-ins
- Anchor holes
- Electrical, phone, fiber optic, and cable openings
- Pockets for post-tension tendons
- Roadway and slab holes for dowel drilling and rebar tie-ins
- Creation of manholes
Core drilling is also used to pull samples of concrete for testing and analysis.
