Description

Intumescent acoustic putty pads designed to maintain the fire resistance of plasterboard partitions where they have been penetrated by plastic or metal electric socket boxes.

Under fire conditions, the pad expands to fill the void left by the burnt out electrical socket box, preventing the spread of fire through the plasterboard wall.

Features and benefits:

  • Suitable for plastic and metal electric socket boxes and switch boxes.
  • Pre-cut shapes, suitable for sealing both single and double socket boxes.
  • Mouldable, and easily installed by hand.
  • Contributes to the reduction of air leakage, helping reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.
  • Provides a cold smoke seal.
  • Manufactured in the UK, from an orange, non-setting silicone based intumescent polymer.
  • Acoustic rated, up to 70 dB reduction.
  • Can be retro-fitted.
  • Unaffected by moisture.
  • Expected to last the lifetime of the service installation.

Standards and approvals:

  • Up to two hour fire rating.
  • Tested to the principles of BS EN 1366-3: 2009 and assessed to BS EN 1363-1: 2012.
  • Acoustic tested to BS EN ISO 140-3: 1995.

Application/ installation:

The pad is inserted into a clean socket back box so that the pad completely covers the back and sides, with a slit to allow the wires to pass through the pad.
