Application

Installed by compressing the strip by hand and sliding into place.

Provides a reliable, easily fixed fire seal to resist the passage of fire through all structural joints and gaps including:

  • Expansion, contraction, flexible and seismic movement joints. The foam's compression and recovery allows movement to take place without affecting the fire seal.
  • The junction of separating and compartment walls with floors or roof. Suitable for both horizontal and vertical junctions.
  • Cavity barriers. Will form a cavity barrier within all concealed areas, such as above suspended ceilings or within cavity walls.

Description

Versatile, fire resistant expansion joint fire seal providing a fire stop seal for movement joints, at the junction of compartment floors and walls or wherever a cavity barrier is required. The compressible foam core accommodates different joint widths whilst allowing for structural movement.

Manufactured from specially treated urethane type compressible foam, impregnated with fire retardant chemicals. The foam is then bonded to a graphite based intumescent material to form a composite seal. In the event of fire this expands to maintain the fire stop seal for up to six hours.

Features and benefits:

  • Lightweight and easy to handle.
  • Unaffected by moisture or water.
  • Suitable for gaps up to 120 mm.
  • Manufactured in the UK.
  • Expected to last the lifetime of the building.

Standards and approvals:

  • Up to six hour fire rating.
  • Tested to BS 476: Part 20: 1987.
