Where building services such as pipes, ducts and cable trays, penetrate fire rated walls and structures, the Fireplug slabs are appropriate for reinstating the integrity and fire rating of those structures. They can be easily cut to the size and shape of any aperture, using a knife or saw, and inserted into voids around the services to form a smoke tight seal that is capable of holding back fire for up to four hours.
 
  • Fire rated for up to four hours
  • Low smoke emission
  • High density board - will not delaminate during installation
  • Ablative - forms fire retardant crust on the board face
  • Halogen free - coating contains no solvent or toxic products
  • Water based coating that is easy to apply and clean off
  • Coating is overpaintable
  • Easy to penetrate - for adding further surfaces

Fireplug Intumescent Slabs are manufactured from a high density low resin content mineral fibre batt that has been coated with Fireplug fire retardant, ablative coating. The standard coating colour is white.
 
Under the action of heat the Fireplug coating expands to form an insulating layer on the mineral fibre slab. The slab in turn retains stability, holding back fire and heat as designated.
 
Tested following the principles of BS476, part 20 and 22 (1987). Loss Prevention Council Report Nos. TE82128 and TE82464 and SGS Yarsley report No. j85163/9. Tested for smoke emission to BS6401 (19830. The maximum optical density Ds obtained was 97. Loss Prevention Council Report No. TE82511.
 
The slabs should be cut to size and shape using a sharp knife or saw. The overall dimensions of the seal should allow a tight fit within the void. All penetrating services should be coated with Fireplug for a minimum of 150mm either side of the Fireplug FPS for insulating purposes.
 
Up to two hours integrity rating
A single Fireplug slab coated on both sides, friction fitted in voids up to 1 metre in any dimension. Over 1 metre the Fireplug slab should be supported using a single steel angle frame fixed in place using steel stud anchors at maximum 300mm centres. For insulation rating see the table (above). Where the fire can approach the Fireplug slab from only one direction, a single Fireplug slab coated on one side can be installed. For example - a void in a 150mm blockwork wall should have the coated sides facing outwards.
Up to four hours integrity rating
Two Fireplug slabs coated on both sides installed with a minimum of 40mm air gap between them, friction fitted in a void up to 1 metre in any dimension. Over 1 metre the Fireplug slab should be supported using a steel angle frame fixed in place using steel stud anchors at maximum 300mm centres. For insulation rating see the table above.
 
Skin over time 24 hours
Shore A Hardness 38 minimum
Service temperature -10°C to +30°C
Cure rate 2mm/24 hours @50% RH 23°C
 
Care must be taken to ensure that the Fireplug slab cannot be stepped on once installed in a horizontal plane such as a floor.
 
Does not emit Halogens or other toxic gases when exposed to flame.
