A fire-rated coated for sealing of BOSS Batts and penetrations
Approved to AS1530.4:2005 and EN1366
Ablative Coating has been developed to seal BOSS Batts once installed in apertures. Once the Ablative Coating is applied it prevents the passage of fire and smoke between fire rated compartments, giving up to 4 hour fire resistance in blank openings and around metallic pipes, cables, cable trays, HVAC ducts and dampers. BOSS Ablative Coating is tested and approved to AS1530.4, AS4072.1 and BS/EN1366.3.
Ablative Coating is a water based acrylic coating, having excellent fire and electrometric properties. At normal temperatures, it remains flexible to permit thermal and mechanical movement of the services. The product is unaffected by oil, fungus, moisture, vermin, contain no halogens or asbestos and contains no VOCs.
BOSS Fire’s Bulkhead Batt is designed to provide simple and effective compartmentalisation and fire stopping in walls and floors.
It consists of high-density mineral fibre batt with an ablative fire resistant coating which can be used in conjuction with other high performance BOSS fire protection products to provide excellent thermal and acoustic insulation. The Bulkhead Batt prevents the passage of fire and smoke between compartment walls and floors whilst still allowing the insulation of services.
At normal temperatures, the Bulkhead Batt installed with FireMastic-300® fire rated sealant remains flexible enough to permit thermal and mechanical movement of services. Both products are unaffected by oil, fungus, moisture and contain no halogens or asbestos.
With today’s rigorous standards in fire safety for residential and commercial buildings, BOSS Fire & Safety offer the perfect solution for maintaining the integrity of Fire Rated ceiling when using downlights.
Traditionally, the installation of downlights means the ceiling’s fire rating would be compromised, and the previous options that exist to maintain the fire rating have been less than satisfactory. Many products on the market are known as ‘heat resistant’ which is not a compliant Fire Rated solution, or are approved only to foreign codes such as British Standard.
BOSS Fire & Safety now offer an effective and low-cost solution, specifically for downlights, that is approved for up to 2-hours Fire Rating. The Fire Rated Downlight Cover is an intumescent hood that is installed on top of the downlight to provide 2hr protection to the ceiling.
FireMastic-300 intumescent Fire-Rated Acrylic Sealant is a one part acrylic emulsion that is designed to resist the passage of fire, smoke and sound. FireMastic-300 will intumesce and form a char when exposed to the heat of a fire, which will prevent the passage of fire and smoke for up to 5 hours in both integrity and insulation. In normal use it will also maintain the sound reduction index of a structure.
FireMastic-300’s superior acoustic properties means it offers up to a 63dB sound reduction, making it ideal for high performance STC installation.
