Cavity Fire Barrier on a Roll visual

Description:

The Astro Cavity Fire Barrier on a Roll provides overall cost savings compared with the traditional method of using Cavity Trays, Cavity Socks, and Weep Holes. Astro Cavity Barrier on a Roll is a fire rated solution for timber frame and masonry cavities. It is designed to replace more traditional cavity barriers such as mineral wool cavity barriers or cavity socks or timber battens which are prone to poor installation which can render them ineffective in a fire situation.

The low profile intumescent design ensures that the cavity remains open allowing brickwork to be laid unobstructed. In addition, the Astro Cavity Fire Barrier on a Roll also limits damage caused by falling masonry and moisture bridging whilst aiding ventilation. Particularly suited for Timber Frame Construction the Astro Cavity Fire Barrier is supplied in 6.3 metre lengths improving installation time and reducing storage requirements.

Specification:

  • 75mm wide x 4mm thick x 6.3 metre long roll. Red only.

It is vital that those entrusted to design or install a fire stopping product have the necessary levels of competence to undertake the task professionally and thoroughly. The level of competency required will be commensurate with the expected complexity of the building. All designers must eliminate, reduce or control foreseeable risks that may arise during installation, construction or maintenance when preparing or modifying designs.
