Fire Protection Solutions That Can Protect Your Home Or Building
Structural fire protection is accomplish via what’s known as “passive protection” for example line boards that are fire resistant and/or active protection through smoke ventilation and alarm systems as well as sprinklers.
For structural engineers the choice of the material use in the structural solution will impact the active and passive strategy for fire protection.
The Testing Of Products And Certification
Y-Walls are test according against BS 476 Part 4.
Y-Wall complies with the BS EN12467
Y-Walls tested in Warrington Fire research
Fire-rated through wall solution for BS 476 Part 21 BS 476 part 22
Fire Rating A1 Non-Combustible Classification
To show the fact that we as a business RCM is completely commit to delivering reliable products, our range of products includes products that are CE Mark. CE Marking ensures a product is compliant with European safety, health and environmental protection laws.
It is a declaration by the manufacturer that the product is in compliance with strict standards and assures that it is in compliance with the most important specifications, such as the dimensions of the product, its thermal performance, and reaction to the fire classification.
Webersil Tf is also BBA certifie. It is a complete technical approval for building products as well as systems. It is also recognise by building control authorities, government departments as well as local authorities, architects as well as specifiers and insurance companies for buildings.
BBA Approval provides reassurance to contractors, architects, and designers when they design or install the building products.
Multipurpose TF – Tried and Tried for Timber Applications
The test was conduct through BRE Global; our new Multipurpose TF Board has be specifically design to meet the needs of the timber industry for structural use. With BBA Certification in the process our A1 non-combustible multipurpose TF made of cellulose fibre cement, 8mm board.

The timber-frame constructions are expect to be among the most innovative advancements within the UK in regards to sustainability. The PS 190 million, 18,000m2 project includes 2,511 bedrooms, brand new athletic fields as well as a gym for the campus.
Y-Wall was chose because of its fire-resistant capability and its superior levels of structural stability. The new buildings are expect to attain a “True Zero Carbon” accreditation and also meet BREEAM Outstanding requirements under the regulations of 2011.
Check out the solutions for fire protection and the brands that will help protect your home
Thermal insulation can be use as an option to protect the residential and commercial areas from the risk of fire.
Products such as Rockwool System can be use to create a penetration seal or a linear joint seals, which ensure it is that the seals the structure, protecting it from fire-relate injuries. These products are to protect structures against fires.
The Sheffield insulation firm offers a variety of options to choose from to thermally insulate your home. They also have a team of experts to assist you in finding the most efficient thermal insulation that meet your requirements.
Mulcol Multimastic FB1
It is important to note that the Multi Mastic FB1 and Multimastic FB2 are from rock wool that has greater density. These fire boards can also be coat by applying Multimastic C coating on either one or both fire board’s sides.
Both of them can limit and stop the flame and also create an atmosphere of smoke and zones of protection from fire to rooms which are connect.
Rockwool Ablative Batts With Coated 50mm And 60mm
The Rockwool Ablative Coat Batts provide fire protection options for floors and walls. The Batts are available in two sizes: 50mm and 60mm batts which are able to seal the spaces.
Coated Batt is an insulation from mineral wool. It is coat both sides with a high-performance ablative coat. The coat batts with ablative coating can easily be to shape and size according to your requirements.
But the cuts that you create to batts must be limit to a minimal amount. You can achieve great fire resistance from just a single thickness of batt. Tests have shown that coated batts can provide up to two hours of protection against fire.
Collars And Compounds
Collars are fire-proof solutions that allow you to protect the pipework’s pipework holes with plastic to protect them from flames. Pipe Collars, such as those made by Rockwool Firepro Pipe Collar provide an effective means to prevent the flame from moving through the pipework.
Their carl weber painting can also provide up to four hours of protection from fire in the event of an accident. Compounds are the barrier that stops the fire from exiting through the openings by sealing the openings.
These are specially create to prevent flame from entering the structure by creating cavities that stop fires from entering the structures. Rockwool SP Firestop Fixing Brackets allows lateral compression of the buildings, which allows for sealing between the building substrates.
Discs such as discs like the Mulcol Multi Disc are simple solutions to protect against fire. They are tiny, self-adhesive disks that can be position around smaller holes. They’re CE-certified, and don’t require additional cost for installation and they are reusable.
The sheathing boards are items like the RCM-Y Walls that offer fire-resistant partitions for structures. They are lightweight steel and timber-framed boards which find use as exterior sheathing.
The weber sil paint solutions are offered in the form of barrier system angle supports and barrier slabs that stop the spread of fire into the hidden building spaces. The Rockwool TCB cavity barriers provide an airborne sound reduction, and can also be use to seal spaces.
