The fire stop and sealing work completed for the Tauranga Hospital east wing extension has set the construction industry alight with its precision and certification standards.

Every single one of the 2750 holes made through the walls, fl oors and ceilings for services such as plumbing, electricity and heating has been sealed against fi re, smoke, gas and water using specialist products supplied by CSD Sealing Systems Ltd.

Its certifi ed installer, Fire Stop & Sealing NZ Ltd, has given every hole – referred to as penetrations – a unique identity number and recorded the specifi c product used to seal it on an online database provided by certifi cation experts CID International Ltd.

As a fi nal safeguard, the installation work has been audited by RedCo NZ Ltd, providing cast-iron certainty that every fi re or smoke-stop wall complies with the hospital’s fire rating.

Greg Hand at CSD, says this is the fi rst time in New Zealand that any public building project has seen fire stopping to this sophistication, and all parties are amazed at the results.
