1 to 2 Hour Fire Walls
The FireWall panel system we install has been developed with durability, structural and fire performance in mind.
FireWall panels consist of two galvanized polyester coated steel sheets and a structural insulation made of non-combustible mineral wool. All three layers are then bonded to form a composite element.
The panel is ideally suitable for the construction of non-loadbearing internal partition walls that require a tested fire resistance. When a partition wall is installed into a new or refurbished building, it may be required to contain a fire within a space [compartment] or to provide a means of escape for personnel into which a fire cannot readily penetrate.
The first concept is known as compartmentation and the latter is known as a protected corridor. When a non-loadbearing partition wall is providing such functions it will have to comply with the requirements of the Building Regulations and possibly insurance requirements.
The FireWall Panel System will meet all the requirements for compartmentation and protected zones in Building Regulation Approved Document B.
Fire Barriers for Fuel/Oil Storage Tanks
The legal requirement for fire protection of fuel oil storage vessels means that a fire barrier must be used to protect the tank from any potential source of ignition in the surrounding area.
30 Minute Barrier - Domestic
A 30 minute fire rated barrier is required where oil storage tanks of less than 3,500 litres capacity serving single family dwellings are sited:-
- Within 760mm of a combustible boundary
- Within 1800mm of a combustible wall of a building
- Within 1800mm of an opening in a non combustible wall (door, window, flue, etc.)
60 to 120 Minute Barrier - Comercial
A 60 to 120 minute fire rated barrier is required for commercial installations and tanks of over 3,500 litres capacity. For further information on 60 to 120 minute installations then call us.
Fire Boarding and Cladding
Fire boarding & cladding are used to
line the external walls of
steel framed industrial
buildings in situations where the wall is 1 metre or more from the
boundary. It can be used in most types of industrial property including factories, warehouses, and units.
Fire Rated Partitioning
1/2 hour & 1 hour fire rated partitioning systems are mainly used in locations where compartmentation is required, or to provide emergency fire routes. They are manufactured either from a plasterboard system, that can be painted, or have a wall cover.
The alternate system is a double skin steel system with insulation between the two steel panels. Both are highly versitile and suit any environment. Both systems have a wide range of doorways - single, double & sliding doors available, and a selection of window modules. Heights of up to 10m can be achieved. Just call us for more details.
