When fire-resistance-rated walls and floors are breached by penetrating items such as ducts, pipes, cables, and joints, the fire- and smoke-resistance-rated qualities of these assemblies may be compromised.  To ensure continuity of protection, the best practice is to visually survey ALL of these assemblies annually.  In fact, some codes require it. Barrier Repair Contractors schedule and perform all of these required repairs, then document completed repairs in an inventory that the building owner and manager can manage for the building life cycle.
