Fire Stop


I have areas that I know I need to add fire stop in, like where conduit runs between floors, or drops down through rock into sofit boxes to feed lights. I have used some great stuff, but know it isn't a fire stop material and will burn.

Can I use traditional plaster as a fire stop? When you use it on your walls, I know it qualifies as a fire stop material. It sure as heck doesn't burn.
Thanks
Jamie

Fire Stop


plaster must be finished which tightens and strengthens the surface, which makes it somewhat fire resistant. Placing in a hole will not be sufficient. Use rated materials only. like blocking, fire caulk, fire rated great stuff (orange), wool fibers, fire blocking mortar, 5/8" sheet rock The fire blocking is used to seal air flow inside a chase. It also must be rated to last 25 plus years.

I have some areas like where lots of tubes of smurf penetrate through the plaster ceiling (which will be built into sofit boxes). I was thinking about plastering right up to. I think I would use alot of tubes of fire stop caulk just around these ENT tubes.
