Fire compartmentation is vital in any fire safety design. It basically means to divide a building into cells to prevent the passage of fire from one cell to another for a given period of time.
Compartmentation is also a passive fire prevention method meaning that it doesn't typically react or change in a fire condition. It is effectively a capital cost and can have little maintenance requirements however the integrity must be maintained for example a fire door that gets used on a regular basis.
Firestopping is the generic term given to various components that are used to seal openings in fire compartmentation.
