Protecta Putty Pads have been designed to maintain the fire resistance of plasterboard walls where these are breached by electical switches and sockets, even when installed back-to-back.
The Putty Pad is a non-setting flexible intumescent pad based on a silicone polymer with additional fire retardant additives. The Putty Pad can be fitted inside or on the outside of the socket or switch box and in a fire they form a robust fire resistant char that prevents burn through at the location of electrical penetrations. Only 1 pad is required for each box and these can be any combination of internal/external fix to allow more flexibility when fixing plasterboard linings.
The Putty Pad can be supplied in sizes to suit electrical boxes or as a rectangle and are supplied on a quick release paper. The Putty Pad is also an ideal product for smoke-sealing around penetration openings.
