Steel Structures can have their Fire Rating upgraded with this highly versatile, Class A1 and Class 0, Gypsum board, suitable for constructing all forms of partition and ceilings, including curved applications, giving high-levels of fire and impact protection.
Slab Edge Fire Protection
Designed to form cavity fire stops within buildings, they can be installed horizontally or vertically and are suitable for cavity widths between both masonry and curtain wall constructions. The Slab Edge Fire Protection resists the passage of smoke and is easy to install. A fire rating of up to 4hrs can be achieved with their installation.
Where services pass through fire compartment walls, the aperture must be sealed with ‘approved products’ that have been tested to BS 476: Pt. 20/22: 1987. The most common and versatile of such products is Fire batt and Intumescent Mastic. All combustible services are to be sealed with either graphite mastic, an intumescent wrap or an intumescent collar. With such materials, a fire rating of up to 4hrs can be achieved.
Cavity Barriers or “Fire Barrier”, can be used to create compartmentation in roof/loft voids and above ceiling grids. Achieving a fire rating of up to 4hrs and being very versatile, they can be used to create both small and large barriers.
