Code Compliance, Without All the Extra Steps

These firestopping, sound-abating solutions blaze past unreliable sealants and sprays to chart a new path forward for commercial construction.

The problem with typical code-compliant assemblies:

  1. Short-lived solutions
  2. Added backing materials
  3. Tons of time spent installing
We decided that the industry could do better.

Trim-Tex: Simpler, Faster, Better

Built to Last

Unlike traditional wet-applied firestopping, Trim-Tex engineered to remain permanently flexible, providing a resilient seal for the entire lifetime of your wall assembly.

More Efficient

Save on installation time and labor costs by eliminating the need for fire sealants and fire spray at the head of wall.

Easy to Inspect

Brightly colored vinyl makes it easy for inspectors to identify them, and since they install fully cured, they can be inspected the same day they're applied.
