New Testing Alert! Tenmat Socket Box Inserts achieve further approvals.
Although the Tenmat Socket Box Inserts have been a core product in the range for a while, we continue to listen to market needs and requirements as well as customer feedback. We recently conducted a further 4 full scale partition fire tests as well as some Project Specific testing.
This is one of the most extensively tested Firestopping Solutions for Socket Protection available on the market today. The new testing included:
- EI30 – 75mm thick Single Layer Partition Systems
- EI90 and EI120 – 100mm thick Double Layer Partition Systems
- EI60 Twin Wall/Double Stud 190mm thick Fire and Acoustic Rated Partition System
- Additional Back to Back sockets tested
- Multiple Cable Penetrations entering the box tested
- Further testing on both Plastic and Metal Back Boxes up to 47mm deep
- Metal Back Boxes recessed or set back into the wall tested
Putty pads are the alternative on the market however these can be fiddly to fit and don’t respond well to dusty environments. They also tend to be less cost effective than the Socket Box Inserts.
Pre-formed for fast fitting
Tenmat Socket Box Inserts are unique in that they are fully pre-formed to fit both single and double back boxes of different depths. Pre-forming ensures that fitting is fast with a minimum of skill and no special tools required, just slit or make holes to fit the cables, press into the back box and move on, job done in seconds. No moulding of putty, no mess and no guesswork.
Moulding putty is an artform – fire protection requires engineered products, not artists!
Pre-formed for optimum performance
The Tenmat Socket Box Inserts are also unique in that they do not just provide fire protection but are also extensively tested to provide acoustic and airtightness protection, the design of both the insert material and compressible edge seal ensures a secure fit every time.
Extensive fire testing
Unlike many other socket box protection products, the Tenmat Socket Box Inserts have been fire tested to the most onerous standards in a wide range of constructions and durations, providing the most comprehensive test data in the industry.
The latest batch of full scale fire tests has been driven by the development of novel wall constructions as well as some project specific testing for large volume projects. It is this willingness, by Tenmat, to continually add additional testing to meet customer needs which sets the product apart from many others.
To ensure optimum safety the Tenmat Socket Box Inserts are also classified as low smoke zero halogen, providing maximum peace of mind.
Quick and easy to fit, providing optimum fire, acoustic and airtightness performance backed by industry leading test data, the Tenmat Socket Box Insert makes affordable sense.
