Typical Fire Stopping Installations

Intumescent-Coated-Batts

Intumescent Coated Batts

Intumescent Batts are a cost effective, lightweight answer to most fire stopping requirements and consist of a mineral fibre board coated with an elastomeric, ablative water based sealant for fire sealing temporary and permanent multiple-service openings in walls and floors. In the event of a fire, the correctly installed batts prevent the passage of fire and smoke from the compartment wall/floor when penetrated by building services.

Key Features:

  • Up to 4 hours fire resistance
  • Easy, fast installation
  • Thermal, air sealing & acoustic ratings up to 59Db
  • Can be used for cable trays, trunking, blank openings, ducting, metal & plastic pipes

 
 




Intumescent Compound

Intumescent compound is single part gypsum based material for sealing around service penetrations, steel pipes, steel ducts, cables & cable trays running through floors and is designed to re-instate the fire resistance of the compartment floor whilst providing an unsupported load-bearing system.

Key Features:

  • Up to 4 hours fire resistance
  • Easy, fast installation
  • Load bearing
  • Quick setting
  • Easy re-penetrable




Intumescent Mastic

Intumescent mastics can be used for all building & constructions joints and normally consist of a single part; water based acrylic, (silicone available upon request) and is used to provide fire protection to gaps & movement joints. It also provides fire protection around service penetrations when used in conjunction with the Intumescent batts.

Key Features:

  • Up to 4 hours fire resistance
  • Suitable for gaps up to 50mm wide
  • Maintains substrate acoustic & air seal ratings
  • Reduces air leakage
  • Accommodates movement

 
 


Pipe Collars / Wraps & Sleeves

Pipe-CollarsPipe collars are surface mounted whereas a pipe wrap /sleeve fits around the circumference of the pipe within the depth of the substrate. In the event of a fire both systems will prevent the passage of fire & smoke by closing off the aperture within the compartment wall/floor when penetrated with plastic pipes.

Key Features:

  • Up to 2 hours fire resistance
  • Lightweight, flexible & easy to install
  • High performance expansion rate
  • For, (but not limited to), UPVC,PVC, Metal and composite pipe penetrations

Putty Pads

Intumescent_Putty_PadsPutty pads are a non-setting, silicone based product which are designed to reinstate the fire integrity of the wall when penetrated by an electrical backing box, eliminating the requirement for a baffle box.

Key Features:

  • Up to 2 hours fire resistance
  • Easy to install
  • Maintains the acoustic integrity
  • Electrically non-conductive
