Used to firestop profiles in roofing, cladding and composite floor decking.

Description

Firestopping blocks manufactured to suit the specific trapezoidal shape. The width is determined by the fire rating of the masonry wall. When firestopping steel beams or plasterboard partitions, the block must fill the full width of the beam or partition.

Features and benefits:

  • Supplied to suit floor decking, roofing or cladding profile.
  • Used for sealing partition heads. No need to scribe plasterboard into corrugations.
  • Used to seal top flanges of fire boarded structural steel and provide compartmentation.
  • Used in conjunction with C144 Firestop Strips to seal between top of blockwork and underside of profiled sheeting.
  • Individual blocks to suit depth of wall or continuous sections where corrugations run parallel with walls.
  • Airtight and smoke seal when used in conjunction with Fastight Coating.
  • Improved acoustic performance when applied with Fastight Coating.
  • Available shrink wrapped to prevent fibre migration.
  • Approved for use on London Underground/ Crossrail projects.
