+44 (0)161 924 1600 www.farrat.com
Application

Suitable for use anywhere a penetration or transition exists in a building envelope to improve building thermal and fire resistance performance, such as:

  • Facade system connections to primary frames.
  • Brise soleil and canopies.
  • Roof plant enclosures – columns.
  • Roof parapets.
  • Cladding systems.
  • Connection of external to internal primary building elements.
  • Balconies.
  • Staircases.
  • Isolation of sub-structure and basement elements.
  • Man-safe systems.
  • Connections to existing structures.

Description

High performance, A2 fire rated thermal insulator, used between horizontal and vertical connections of internal and external elements to prevent thermal or cold bridging. Constructed from materials with high compressive strength characteristics, combined with a low thermal conductivity.

They can be used in a wide variety of applications where there is a structural requirement for thermal insulation, such as steel to steel, steel to concrete/ masonry, steel to timber and concrete to concrete.

Benefits:

  • Rated A2-s1, d0 to EN 13501-1 as a limited combustibility material.
  • Maintains structural performance at high temperatures or in the event of fire.
  • An effective solution to meeting Building Regulations by reducing heat loss and internal condensation. Compliant for use under Document B Building Regulations for buildings above 18 m.
  • Warranted for life of the building structure.

Features:

  • High compressive strength.
  • Low thermal conductivity coefficient.
  • Remains intact under fire conditions, prevents passage of flame.
  • Capable of transferring load in moment and shear connections without creating significant rotation.
  • Available in a variety of thicknesses.
  • Manufactured to suit the connection detail (bespoke).
