Every building must be designed and constructed in such a way that in the event of fire, the spread of smoke and flame within concealed cavities is inhibited.
Our Rock Mineral Wool fire barriers are used to sub divide cavities to prevent smoke and flame from bypassing fire-resisting walls and partitions, and are required to be placed above fire resisting partitions.
The main reasons for insulating ductwork are acoustics, thermal and where necessary, fire protection. Product selection is dependent on duct shapes, levels of fire protection needed and whether the duct penetrates separating building elements.
