ROCKWOOL® Fire Barrier Systems
Fire Barrier Systems are essential to prevent the rapid spread of fire in concealed spaces within a building. The ROCKWOOL Fire Barrier and Fire Barrier Slab have been specially developed to offer easy to install solutions which effectively prevent the spread of fire and smoke within unseen roof and ceiling voids.
As a labour saving, easy to install fire resistant insulation product, the ROCKWOOL Fire Barrier systems offer essential prevention against fire and smoke in hidden spaces. As part of the comprehensive ROCKWOOL FIREPRO® range of products, the ROCKWOOL Fire Barrier systems feature a patented ‘Quick Fix’ support system, which offers a quick, cost effective solution for fire resistant periods of up to 60 minutes. The ease of installation significantly reduces the risk of error, whilst extended drops can be catered for as the system has been tested to perform in void heights of up to 10.5 metres. As vertically hung Fire Barriers, they are able to offer integrity and insulation protection periods from 15 to 120 minutes, in addition to the friction fitted Fire Barrier Slab which also provides 60 minutes integrity and insulation. It is ROCKWOOL’s essential insulation performance, that effectively limits heat transfer through the barriers. This ensures that the heat transfer to the non-fire side is minimised to prevent the ignition of any combustible materials in close proximity to the barrier.
