Somerville, NJ (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
Specified Technologies, Inc. (STI) announces a dedicated firestop reference tool for architects, engineers, facility maintenance professionals, contractors, and installers involved in firestopping of healthcare facilities. The new website, healthcarefirestop.com is an online firestop system reference tool for information on applications, UL systems, codes and compliance issues, specification tools, technical support, product selection guidance and training and education. The information has been collected and vetted from a number of recognized authorities in the firestop and healthcare facility construction industry.
According to Ray Bruno, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for STI, "Nowhere in the construction industry is firestopping more critical to life safety than in the construction and maintenance of healthcare facilities where patient privacy, infection control, and ongoing compliance must all be considerations. The complexity of healthcare facility construction—along with the continued floor, wall and ceiling penetrations due to equipment moves, expansion and technology upgrades—makes the job of continued firestop compliance a constant challenge."
Engineers, specifiers and firestop contractors are encouraged to visit this online information center for installation tips, system recommendations, expert advice, and visit the library full of resource links, technical briefs, relevant literature and specification services.
