Note to specifier: This specification section covers only “Through-Penetration Firestop Systems.” Most projects require protection of “Fire-resistive construction joints” as well; a companion section 07 84 43 “Joint Firestopping” should be issued in addition.
Should a Division 7 Specification Section for Firestop Systems not accompany the Project Manual, the Mechanical or Electrical Engineer may utilize this Specification Section and number it within a Division 21, 22, 23, or 26 Specification for “Through-Penetration Firestop Systems”.
