ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Abesco Fire Rated Boards are designed to prevent the spread of fire from one compartment to another where mechanical and electrical services penetrate separating walls and floors, and provide up to 4 hours fire resistance.
Abesco Fire Rated Boards consist of a high density mineral fibre slab which is factory pre-coated with a water based, fire resistant coating. When used in conjunction with Abesco fire rated coating and mastic, the baords provide an effective fire barrier for large multiple-service openings.
WHY USE ABESCO FIRE RATED BOARD?
- Ease of installation – dry trade
- Simple retro-fitting of additional services
- Tested for acoustic performance
HOW DOES ABESCO FIRE RATED BOARD WORK?
When exposed to the heat of a fire, the excellent thermal insulation properties of Abesco Fire Rated Boards provide an effective barrier, preventing the passage of fire and elevated temperatures.
The fire resistant coating and mastic seal around services and board joints provide a further barrier to the passage of cold smoke.
