Rockwool Fire Barrier Systems - prevent fire and inhibit smoke spread within roof and ceiling voids. The products are quick and easy to fit and also have thermal insulation and acoustic properties.
The system consists of vertically hung Fire Barrier Curtains and the friction fitted Fire Barrier Slabs measuring 1000mm x 600mm x 100mm. Extended drops can be protected using the fire barrier curtain as the system maintains its performance in voids up to 10.5m high.
The Rockwool Fire Barrier Curtain has a 25mm galvanised wire mesh stitched with wire to one face as standard. Rockwool Fire Barrier Slabs have a factory applied foil finish to both faces as standard.
By protecting the structural frame of the building from destruction by fire, it is possible to give occupants more time to escape, and to limit the damage to the building.
Stone wool offers ‘best-in-class’ fire protection
UK Timber Frame Association (UKTFA) guidance shows stone wool offers ‘best-in-class’ fire protection for timber frame projects.
A new classification system for insulation products, launched by the UKTFA and backed by the Health & Safety Executive, has identified Stone Wool as the only insulation product to achieve its highest ‘Type 3’ rating.
The system uses independent test results included as part of the UKTFA guidance ‘Design Guide to Separating Distances During Construction’ which has been created to help building designers to mitigate the potential for fire spread between buildings during the building phase of timber frame project
The Rockwool Fire Barrier System
The vertically hung Fire Barriers are capable of achieving both integrity and insulation protection periods from 15 to 120 minutes. It is Rockwool’s essential insulation performance that limits the heat transfer through the barriers, preventing ignition of combustible materials in adjacent areas.
The ‘Quick Fit’ support system is patented (grant number is GB2393119B) and offers a quick, cost effective installation method for the Fire Barriers for periods of up to 60 minutes. This focus on ease of construction and installation has the added benefit of reducing the risks of installation errors.
Ninety and 120 minute systems are also available using the traditional support methods (see section on 1½ and 2 hour barriers for typical specification).
Extended drops are easily catered for, with the system capable of maintaining its performance in void heights up to 10.5 metres
