Tenmat’s FF102/50, Ventilated Cavity Fire Barriers, are manufactured from a low smoke zero halogen high expansion intumescent material. They are designed to reinstate fire resisting performance to external wall cavities that are required to be ventilated (open-state) in non-fire conditions.
The FF102/50 is manufactured from a rigid intumescent material allowing it to be provided in a strip format, it is also covered with a protective layer of aluminium foil for ease of handling.
The products hold 3rd Party Certification after having undergone extensive fire testing following the principles of BS EN1363-1 and in accordance with ASFP TGD19 (Fire Resistance Test for ‘Open-State’ Cavity Barriers).
In the event of a fire the FF102/50 intumescent strips will expand to close the external wall cavity, providing effective fire resistance, for integrity and insulation for up to 120 minutes depending upon the construction of the external walls.
The FF102/50 is designed for use within cavities of up to 50mm and once installed will close the remaining free air gap in front of the 6mm cavity barrier of up to a maximum of 44mm (depending on construction type).
