Fire and smoke stop for linear gaps or imperfections of fit in buildings.
AIM Fire Stop Strip is made from high density Rockwool stone wool and is permanently held in place by compression without the need for adhesive or intumescent mastic. It prevents the passage of flame and smoke through the void being fire stopped. For gaps greater than 100 mm above masonry walls and partitions use AIM Partition Head Barrier.
AIM Fire Stop Strips have been developed to prevent the passage of fire and smoke in narrow voids in constructions such as the junctions of compartment walls and floors. The Fire Stop Strip will accept deflection from the floor above and can be used to seal imperfections in the wall construction.
AIM Fire Stop Strip is manufactured in lengths of 1200 mm with depths and widths to suit the void size (with an additional 5% depth to allow for the compression fit).

Sound insulation rating
AIM Fire Stop Strip provides at least RW 14 dB sound reduction. The acoustic performance of the floor and wall systems must also be considered when assessing the room-to-room sound reduction figure.
75 mm long block: RW 14 db, 100 mm long block: RW 18 db, 140 mm long block: 23 db RW.
For voids 10 mm to 100 mm.
