+44 (0)113 2529428 Website

Application

  • For fitting within a timber frame cavity.
  • Specified in semi-detached houses, apartments and major projects.
  • Ideally suited for providing a cavity barrier within the external wall cavity, in line with a separating wall or floor, and around window and door openings, as specified in Approved Document B.

Description

Cavity fire barrier designed to be compression fitted within a timber frame cavity. In vertical applications, both flanges are fixed; in horizontal applications, only the top flange should be fixed. The flanges are fixed to the frame using clout nails at 150 mm centres.


The polythene encapsulation offers on-site weather protection but can be cut away without affecting the barrier’s performance.


It restricts the spread of smoke and flames within timber frame cavity walls, as well as minimizing the effect of flanking noise pollution at wall junctions. It is manufactured from low-resin, non-combustible rock fibre mineral wool insulation and is sleeved in polythene for on-site protection.


This product restricts the spread of smoke and flames within the cavity of timber frame walls, while also minimizing the effect of flanking noise pollution. 


Features and benefits:

  • Up to 60 minutes of fire integrity.
  • Horizontal and vertical options.
  • Can be used around window and door openings.
  • Specified in terraced, semi-detached, apartments and major projects.
  • Meets requirements of Robust Detail Part E and Approved Document B.
  • Maximum cavity width available: 150 mm.
  • Easily installed.
  • Third-party certificated by IFC.
