TENMAT offers Ventilated Fire Barriers suitable for a wide range of cavity sizes and constructions. Modern constructions often require external cladding, external facades and rainscreen systems to be held away from the building structure to allow ventilation and improve the building energy efficiency.
This resulting cavity creates a serious fire protection threat to structures and people. The void acts like an open chimney and allows the fire to spread quickly both vertically and horizontally around the building. TENMAT’s range of Intumescent Ventilated Fire Barriers or ‘Open State’ Cavity Fire Barriers are designed to maintain the ventilated cavity in normal conditions but will rapidly expand to seal off the gap in the event of a fire.
The Tenmat FF102 Ventilated Fire Barriers, available for 50mm or 25mm wide gaps, are high expansion intumescent seals offering industry leading performance as Ventilated Cavity Fire Barriers / ‘Open State’ Cavity Fire Barriers. The products have undergone extensive fire testing and are suitable for use within the majority of construction types, enabling the versatile system to be specified with confidence and provide the installer with a simple, time saving and site friendly solution. Rated for exposure to weather (including UV, rain, frost) and a 60year working life under NZ conditions.
The FF102 Ventilated Fire Barriers are rigid, high expansion intumescent strips encased in aluminium foil. The FF102 can be mechanically fixed within ventilated cavities behind rainscreen or cladding systems to act as a cavity fire barrier. Firestop Centre sells the correct sized stainless steel screws for these systems.
