Reinstate the fire resistance and acoustic performance

  • Fire Batts require no maintenance and is simple to install

SBS Limited have years of experience with such systems

Fire batts act as an air seal barrier to reinstate the fire resistance and acoustic performances following the creation of voids for the passage of services in concrete floors, masonry walls and dry wall systems. Tests have proved the capability of a single 60mm Batt to provide up to 4 hours fire resistance integrity, insulation ratings are dependent upon the service penetration. The system also requires no maintenance and is simple to install.

Batts are simply cut and a bead of sealant applied around the external edges. They are then friction fitted between the services and the wall or floor edges to completely seal the void. Coated Batts can also be used as a head-of-wall barrier to extend the fire resistance and acoustic performances of drywall or masonry walls that finish at suspended ceiling height, up to the concrete soffit above.
