Provide confidence in firestop system installations by obtaining our inspection certification
An audit of your site-specific firestop installations can help determine compliance with our 10 Element Program Requirements. Firestop systems serve as critical safeguards against the spread of heat, fire, gases or smoke through breaches in floors and walls. We certify products being used in firestop installations because proper materials are required for system success and correct installation is critical. As an optional extension of our Qualified Firestop Contractor Program, we also provide a voluntary Qualified Firestop Contractor Program that holds contractors to our exacting quality management system. The MACC Program provides stakeholders the confidence that the firestop systems installation in their building was completed by a UL Qualified Firestop Contractor (UL QFCP) and audited to our stringent 10 Element Program Requirements. The MACC is a tool that can be requested by architects, contractors and building owners.
