Firestop Slide Show starts below

(linkbar on each page too)

I have tried to keep this slide show non-partisan, not trying to push or diss any one product, although I'm not immune to having my own personal biases. Please be patient. Some of the pages have over a dozen pictures, which take some time to download. If the topic interests you, it's worth the wait. You may have to hit 'reload' or 'refresh' now and then to get all the pix to show.

The links below follow a logical sequence. You're best advised to follow them in the sequence laid out because one page builds upon the next. There are many links within the text of most pages. Some are intended to bring levity to otherwise dry subject matter. Also, if you're an engineer, please don't be offended, but experience has taught me that for new construction projects, firestopping is best handled by the architect. If you keep an open mind and go through the information, you will probably agree with me.

Any comments, criticisms, encouragement, bellyaching, please mail me.

Don't be bashful. I don't know everything and would love to learn more. I will not open attachments other than JPG or GIF pics though. I prefer that you attach, rather than embed them.

Just click 'NEXT' at the bottom or top of each page, or come back here and pick and choose. The link bars on the top and bottom of each page will allow you to navigate also.
