Application

Siderise BB Balcony Bracket provides a rapid solution for continuing compartmentation of cavity barriers and fire stops where interfacing with a balcony bracket in the cavity when abutted either side by Siderise Cavity Barriers and Fire Stops such as:

  • Siderise EW– Cavity Barriers and Firestops for use in external masonry wall build-ups
  • Siderise RH/RV – Cavity Barriers for use in ventilated facade build-ups
  • Siderise CW – Firestops for use in curtain wall facade build-ups

Siderise BB-FB has been tested in conjunction with CW-FS120 to EN 1366-4:2006+A1: 2010 (WF 426636/R) and achieved over two hours of fire resistance – 120 minutes Integrity / Insulation.

 

This product represents an ideal combination of qualified performance and practical installation.

 

Balcony bracket connectors come in a wide range of styles and sizes, therefore project-specific advice for your application should be sought from Technical Services.

 

The suitability of these products for a given Project Specific Detail depends upon many factors, primarily:

  • The size and geometry of the balcony connector and its associated base plate, fixing bolts, and thermal break.
  • The size and position of the balcony connector and its associated base plate relative to the thickness of the compartment slab.
  • Clearance around the connector and any potential clashes with surrounding elements.

In order to offer feedback on the suitability of these products within the Project Specific Detail, we would require detailed drawings of the connector which should be fully dimensioned and also show the relationship between the connector and the slab/compartment floor assembly (i.e. how much clearance there is to the top/ bottom of the floor). Any thermal break material should be shown and the nature of the material identified. Please provide architectural drawings in vertical section, horizontal section, and elevation. These should be dimensioned and indicate the proposed positioning of cavity barriers or firestops and their required fire resistance.

Siderise BB-FB should be fitted tightly around the baseplate and requires 50 mm (two layers of 25 mm) to the bottom and to either side of the baseplate, and a minimum of 15 mm to the top.

Description

Siderise BB-FB balcony bracket kit is supplied in board sheet form sizes of 25 x 2000 x1180 mm, and 15 x 1200 x 1000 mm (top board only) and cut on site to suit the project geometry.

The individual boards supplied are composed of non-combustible mineral wool with an aluminium foil facing to one side.


Siderise BB-FB has been tested in general accordance with EN 1366-4:2006+A1: 2010 and achieved 120 minutes Integrity and 120 minutes Insulation.  

Siderise BB-FB should be fitted tightly around the baseplate and requires 50 mm (two layers of 25 mm) to the bottom and to either side of the baseplate, and a minimum of 15 mm to the top.

The Siderise BB-FB must span the full width of the void between the slab edge and the façade, enveloping the base plate. Please note that the tested configuration included a 250 mm void width and a 250 x 250 mm stub base plate.

 

The fireboard layers are fixed together at corner joints using 40 mm long spiral screw fixings. All corners are to be sealed with Siderise RFT120 Tape.

Siderise BB-FB balcony bracket kit is to be discussed with Siderise technical services prior to ordering to review feasibility and full tested arrangement.


Siderise BB Cavity Barrier solutions should be installed in accordance with PD 6697:2019 - 'Recommendations for the design of masonry structures to BS EN 1996-1-1 and BS EN 1996-2' when used in conjunction with Siderise EW in external masonry wall build-ups:


• Must be installed with a DPC extending a minimum of 25 mm into the cavity either side of where the product contacts the brickwork unless the BB-FB is protected from moisture via other means (e.g. cavity tray). DPC to be sourced separately.


Features and benefits:

  • Tested generally in accordance with EN 1366-4:2006+A1: 2010 and achieved 120 minutes Integrity and 120 minutes Insulation (WarringtonFire Test Report No. 426636/R).
  • Flexibility to deal with site tolerances.
