Recessed ceiling fans and ventilation ducts are widely used in both domestic and commercial buildings. Ceilings are subject to fire regulations and must be fire protected in accordance with Approved Document B of the Building Regulations.

Once a hole is made in the ceiling for a polymeric fan or vent, the integrity of the construction and its ability to perform in a fire is reduced significantly. This must be firestopped to reinstate the original fire rating of the ceiling.

The popularity of forced / controlled ventilation is on the rise as it can be more energy efficient than traditional ventilation methods. The use of centralised ventilation units and heat recovery units results in the building being subjected to penetration holes both horizontally and vertically through the structure, creating pathways for the passage of both fire and smoke.

Unlike downlights, which are generally all fire protected, fans and vents are often left unprotected. A 100mm diameter fan of vent has several times the open area of a downlight and does not even have a metal 'can' to slow the spread of fire. This coupled with the ability of the fire to move all around the building via the ventilation system, makes it ever more important to fire protect all ceiling mounted fans and vents.

FF109 RECESSED CEILING FAN AND VENT SLEEVES
 
The FIREFLY 109 sleeve has been developed to provide maximum protection for holes created by the introduction of the most popular sizes of polymeric recessed ceiling fans and vents with minimal installation time. In a fire situation, the sleeve expands internally to crush the spigot of the fan / vent and create an effective barrier against both heat and flames. Unlike other "intumescent" materials the FIREFLY 109 Sleeves do not need additional support and will only expand inwards.
 
Fitting Instructions
 
Step One
Use OD of sleeve as template and cut a hole in ceiling to provide a snug fit.
  Step Two
