Cavity Fire Barriers systems are designed to prevent the spread of heat, smoke and fire, typically within ceilings and roof voids in a fire situation. Developed to maintain the required compartmentation of structures, these systems provide a benefit for quick and cost-effective solutions, whether mineral fibre or woven fabric products are used.
Design and installation of cavity fire barriers
The fire barriers are suitable for application into a vast range of buildings, from commercial offices and hospitals to airports and shopping centres. The cavity fire barriers can be installed as a hanging curtain or as a friction fitted slab. The installation of ceiling void fire barrier to provide separation of void ceiling is the most typical application. The fire barriers can also be installed¬† as a continuation within of void of a fire resistant walls/partitions. The¬† capability of maintaining them performance in void heights up to 10.5 metres¬† and in large spanning horizontal applications, the fire barrier systems, provide the specifiers, architects and installers flexible, cost-effective solutions to fire separation requirements.
