The modern construction of buildings and industrial plants require passive fire protection measures to prevent fire spread or structural collapse.
Our market leading fire rated duct wraps (FireMaster®) stop the spread of fire by providing a high temperature, fire resistant barrier, preventing fire or toxic smoke breaking through. Our efficient high-temperature insulation is essential to the reduction of heat transfer across a wall or roof exposed to fire.
FireMaster prevents the ignition of combustible materials on the non-fire exposed side and protects structures against collapse. This is achieved by limiting the temperature in a fire to below the critical point at which load-bearing capacity is lost.
FireMaster Fire Rated Duct Wraps
FireMaster FastWrap® XL is specially-developed flexible encapsulated insulation wrap, designed for the fire protection of ductwork within all types of buildings. Our products meet international and national building code and fire test performance requirements.
Ductwork in buildings should be insulated to prevent fire spreading within a building and to ensure that the duct function is maintained when exposed to a fire. Our products continue to work regardless of whether a fire occurs inside or outside the duct.
FireMaster FastWrap® XL ductwork fire protection can be used for heating and ventilation, kitchen grease extraction and pressurisation ductwork. Ancillary products and systems are also available for access doors, venting ducts and plastic pipe protection.FireMaster Passive Fire Protection Industry Solutions
Cable Tray Fire Protection
FireMaster® products insulate cable trays carrying instrument control cables. This ensures the cables can operate long enough to allow process shut down during fires.
The FireMaster® cable tray wrap system provides 30 minutes of hydrocarbon fire protection to cable trays carrying control cable wiring.
The FireMaster® cable tray wrap consists of FireMaster® Marine Plus blanket, fully encapsulated in aluminium foil supplied and in a roll form. It is wrapped around the exterior of the cable tray and held in place with steel banding straps. Additional weather protection can be installed using corrugated aluminium sheeting.
Structural Steel Fire Protection
FireMaster® blanket and FireBarrier® products provide
fire insulation to steel beams and columns to ensure
they maintain load-bearing capacity in a fire. Ultimately preventing collapse of the structure they are supporting.
FireMaster® blanket is flexible enough so that it can easily be wrapped around the outer profile of I beams, columns and tubular sections.
The blanket can be applied in single or multiple layers, providing insulation which meets a variety of steel critical temperatures, from 150°C upwards.
Tubular sections can be protected against jet fires for fire durations of up to three hours, using FireMaster® blanket and microporous insulation.FireMaster FireBarrier 135
