Fire Pillow

Fire Pillow

A fire pillow is a form of passive fire protection designed and subsequently installed to maintain the fire resistance of a fire resisting wall, floor or other structure and help prevent the spread of fire and smoke between two or more fire resisting compartments where an opening or penetration through a fire resisting wall or structure exists.

Fire pillows are available in an array of different sizes (typically small, medium and large) and fire resistance ratings to suit different applications.
