Tridon Industries, a premier installer of fireproofing and insulation products, is proud to announce it has become a U.S. distributing agent for A/D FireBarrier Firestop Systems, a world leader in quality approved firestopping products.
Tridon's expansion into premier firestopping products enhances the firm's line of offerings to new and rehab building contractors in fireproofing, insulation and fire protection.
"There's a new fire stopping sheriff in town, and he is at Tridon Industries," said Mary Beth Yannessa, company owner and president. Yannessa said the need for better firestopping protection is evident both regionally and nationwide.
In 2007, a structure fire was reported every 59 seconds in the United States, resulting in $14.6 billion in property damage and 3,430 deaths. Fire safety experts are on record noting that much of this damage is caused by the spread of fires particularly in rehabbed construction.
A/D FireBarrier Firestop Systems prevent fires from spreading and limit a building owner's damages and liability. A/D FireBarrier Firestop Systems' products comprise of a complete line of firestopping applications, all independently certified and tested to assure rated fire protection. The products are especially adaptable for difficult penetrations and openings in fire-rated floors and walls.
"We believe these products are superior to anything currently on the market for stopping the spread of fire, particularly through penetrations where fire flows undetected," said Yannessa. "The devastation that we have seen in fire-damaged buildings, even though owners thought firewalls protected the spread of flames, is the reason we believe A/D FireBarrier Firestop Systems is essential for all construction and remodeling."
