ez barrier, Inc., a privately-held small business recently was approved as a Woman-Owned Small Business. The designation offers ez barrier the ability to compete with larger companies in the construction industry.

ez barrier is a manufacturer of One-hour Fire-rated Enclosure used to protect buildings from electrical fire when used in a Ceiling-to-Floor, Ceiling-to-Roof Assembly or Fire-rated Wall, and are used to protect recessed lighting, exhaust fans, motors, DC wiring hubs, fire-retardant systems and more. ez barrier provides the most economical product on the market.

National Fire Codes: “Where floor-to-ceiling assemblies are required to have a minimum one-hour fire resistance rating, recessed fixtures shall be installed such that the required fire resistance of the ceiling will not be reduced.”
