  • 3M Master Contractor

    Become a master contractor with 3M Fire Protection Products. We've trained more than 2,000 construction professionals at our fire test center in Minnesota.

    Firestopping is a complicated and serious business, installing "systems" rather than "products." Currently there are over 3,000 tested systems, from over 60 manufacturers. Unfortunately, there are currently no state licensing programs for "firestopping" installation. And with so many different products and systems to choose from, the potential for confusion, misapplication, and the associated risks, is a very real concern.

    The firestop certification designation "Certified 3M - Trained Master Contractor," says a lot about a contractor. It is a standard of quality, identifying the most highly trained professionals in firestopping installations. It is a sign of confidence in a properly and full trained professional – with the experience, resources, training and commitment to get the job done right.
