HCC Fire Barrier Management provides the training and support to implement an effective in-house firestopping
barrier management program. Properly installing firestopping systems is a knowledge-based activity.
installation of most firestopping systems is relatively easy; the installation is typically as easy as filling
a hole. The hard part is knowing HOW to fill the hole. Simply filling a hole with a firestopping material is WRONG.
One needs to know many factors such as the type of penetrating items, size of the opening, spaces between the
penetrating item and the opening, etc.
HCC Fire Barrier Management develops customized and
easily understood procedures that allow in-house staff to complete most firestopping system installations.
Helping You to Do It Yourself
HCC Fire Barrier Management helps facilities manage its own fire barrier management program by providing
staff training and periodic oversight. Once a facility has completed an assessment of where its fire barriers
are located, HCC Fire Barrier Management provides staff training on how to properly firestop the most common
types of found unprotected penetrations. HCC Fire Barrier Management can also provide an installation matrix
guide that allows in-house staff to quickly locate the proper firestopping system for an applicable opening.
HCC Fire Barrier Management also provides off site support. A facility can simply send a picture and pertinent
information to HCC Fire Barrier Management, and we will provide the correct firestopping system that needs to
be installed. HCC Fire Barrier Management also provides periodic inspection and training.

facilities. The cost of outside contractors to install firestopping systems can become very expensive,
