FIRESTOP FOR CURTAIN WALL

Edge-of-slab fire barrier systems for single spandrel, zero spandrel, and steel back pan configurations

Generally, the model building codes require the void between a rated floor assembly and a non-rated exterior wall, such as a curtain wall, shall be protected by a listed firestop system.  But, the complexities of modern-day façades are pushing the limits of fire safety and forcing manufacturers to develop innovative firestop solutions to solve today’s design challenges.
