and foam to impede

Building code and the inspector require that we impede the possibility of fire and smoke traveling from one floor to another, one room to another, into and across the attic. Ron and Cris from Ranserve today applied fire-block foam to penetrations in the framing — where ducts travel between floors and attic, for example.

Above, the HVAC ducts in the master bath are now foamed with orange fire block.
