Fireplug Intumescent Strips are available white or brown, in standard 2100mm or 1050mm lengths and is supplied self adhesive.  Fireplug Intumescent Strips are also available in door sets.  Packed 5 x 1050mm for single doors and 10 x 1050mm for double doors.
Fireplug IF104, IFS104, IF154, IFS154, IF204 and IFS204 are Firestop intumescent strips encased in a PVC sleeve, acheiving a high degree of protection from mechanical and chemical damage.
Fireplug Profile ref IF - rectangular cross section 10 x 4mm (ref IF104) 15 x 4mm (ref IF154) for half hour doors* and 20 x 4mm (ref IF204) for one hour doors*.
Fireplug Profile ref IFS - rectangular cross section 10 x 4mm (ref IF104) 15 x 4mm (ref IF154) for half hour doors and 20 x 4mm (ref IF204) for one hour doors*. A 5mm brush seal for use where cold smoke stopping is required, which has been tested to BS31/1.

* Subject to some restrictions on maximum leaf size, mode of operation and latching.
Under the action of heat, the PVC profile softens as the intumescent core expands sealing the gap between the door and the door frame, through which fire and toxic gas could pass.  The amount of pressure developed by the expanding intumescent is dependent on the gap  to be sealed.  The wider the gap the lower the pressure..  The temperature at which Fireplug Intumescent strip starts to activate is 180 - 200 degrees centigrade. At this temperature no one would survive on the fireside of the door and in most cases the thermal shock would be fatal to anyone on the unexposed side opening the door.  However, despite the requisite that the pressure developed by the expanding intumescent is sufficient to keep the door closed it is possible to make the door open if required.
Fireplug strips have been tested to BS476 Pt22 &23 and are also Certifire Approved under certificate CF358 test documents available on request.
Fireplug intumescent strips are fitted into grooves nominally 10, 15 or 20mm wide x 4mm deep and are supplied with self adhesive backing tape. The groove can be routed either into the door or into the frame.  The rout is along the head of the door and down the jamb.  Intumescent is not required along the bottom as in a fire situation a negative pressure results making the air flow in the opposite direction to the top.

Where the groove is masked by hinges, locks or other door ironmongery we recommend that FIreplug Intumescent Strip is used in conjunction with Fireplug for Hinge and Lock.  If a smoke seal is required then the Fireplug IFS Profile can be used.  The recommended gap around the door is 4mm, this enables ease of opening and closing against the brush stroke seal.
N.B. i)  Never use brush seals in both sides of meeting stiles. ii)  Always fit the IFS brush directly opposite the IF profile.
Fireplug Surface Mount
Fireplug surface mount intumescent strip is available in most colours, or with a real wood veneer.  All seals are self adhesive.  These seals can be ordered made up into complete door sets.  A single door set consists of 3 lengths FP202 and 2 lengths FP102.  Ref: single door set FPSD A double door set consists of 4 lengths FP202 and 4 lengths FP102.  Ref: double door set FPDD.
The surface mounted intumescent fire and smoke seals are 25mm wide incorporating 20mm wide intumescent plus 5mm wide brush smoke seal, complete with polypropylene blade for use on door assemblies that incorporate a mechanical restraint.  FP202 is nominally 2mm thick, FR102 is nominally 1mm thick.  FP102 is used for ease of fitting to the hinge jamb, where you would expect a smaller gap in comparison to closing jamb or head.  All seals come self adhesive as standard.
Under the action of heat, the intumescent rapidly expands to seal around the door stopping the passage of fire and toxic gases.  The brush smoke is designed to inhibit the passage of cold smoke.
Fireplug FP202 and Fireplug FP102 have been tested by TRADA to British Standards BS476, Part 22, on April 20th 1993, test No. FR1687.
Fireplug Surface Mounted Fire and Smoke Seal is supplied in door sets.  The thicker pieces, Fireplug FP202, are installed on the closing lock jamb and the head of the door.  The thin pieces, Fireplug FP102, are installed on the hinge jamb, the surface mount strip is placed over the metal of the hinge, this is to absorb the heat off the metal and to prolong the efficiency of the hinge.  A gap of 3 - 4mm is required to the head and closing jamb prior to application.  A single door set will fit any door up to 2100mm x 1050mm wide.  if necessary additional strips can be supplied using the refs: FP202 and FP102.
