Fire Boarding & Fire Barriers
Fire protective boards are particularly suitable where higher fire ratings, between 90 minutes and 4 hours, are required. They are fitted around steel columns and beams to form box encasement.
They provide a dry, clean solution where the programme is not affected by temperature. Fire board can provide an excellent finish that can be either directly decorated or skimmed with plaster.
Fire barriers provide resistance to the passage of fire and smoke within voids such as ceiling spaces and raised access floors, preventing ignition of combustible materials in adjacent areas.
Fire barriers possess both thermal insulation and acoustic properties. The system usually consists of vertically hung Fire Barrier Curtains that are fixed top and bottom and can achieve a fire rating of up to 120 minutes.
