FIRESTOPPING KEEPS PATIENTS SAFE
In Critical Moments.
WE KNOW HEALTHCARE. THATS WHY WE’RE THE BEST CHOICE FOR HEALTHCARE FACILITIES.
Firestopping is a passive fire containment approach that compartmentalizes building components. Fire-rated walls, joints and floors are separated to contain fire, smoke and toxic gas and prevent the spread of fire within a building. Effective fire-stopping is essential not only to having a fire-safe facility but to staying compliant with the minimum Healthcare Life Safety requirements. With over 100 fire-stop projects under our belts, SHS has arguably the best track record in the industry. Our highly trained staff goes the extra mile to seal walls completely no matter how difficult that may be.

SHS has developed a meaningful benchmarking system that indicates the facilities relative performance in regards to Barrier Management. Using data from our own experience, we can compare hospitals, regardless of size. Our Benchmarking is simple, but effective. The higher the score, the better. A score of over 1,000 is the goal and our Quality Assurance Manager works closely with our field teams to ensure each project accomplishes this goal.
Our industry-leading reports provide detailed photo documentation and location information, the type of structure involved and the nature of the deficiency. Our Repair Log shows before and after photos and indicates the UL Rated system applied to each location. Our Locator Maps pinpoint each area serviced with a unique identifier which is noted on the maps and Finding Repair logs.
