> Product Description

Our fire pillows are manufactured from a hard wearing specially treated glass cloth filled with a mixture of mineral fibre and reactive expansion (intumescent) agents.

On exposure to high temperatures from a fire the intumescent material expands and then hardens to provide a complete and durable seal against the passage of fire, smoke and hot gases.

Intumescent Fire Pillows can be used for creating either temporary or permanent fire barriers. The fire pillows are Certifire approved for sealing Small, Medium and Large Cables, Cable Trays, Cable Ladders and suitable for cable trunking by UL assessment. Please review the data sheet download section.

Suitable for use in telephone exchanges, rooms and other areas where cable services are frequently modified.

*For specific details please refer to the test certification.

> Product Availability

Available in 4 standard sizes to enable effective sealing in whatever size or shape of opening either in walls or floors.

Large - 25 per pack. Medium / Small / Sausage - 50 per pack.

The level of competency required will be commensurate with the expected complexity of the building. All designers must eliminate, reduce or control foreseeable risks that may arise during installation, construction or maintenance when preparing or modifying designs.
