Intumescent & Acoustic Sealants.

Intumescent and acoustic sealants are versatile materials used to fill small gaps and voids around doors, windows, tops of walls, and other openings in a building. These sealants create an effective barrier against smoke, fire, and noise, ensuring the safety and comfort of building occupants.

What sets intumescent and acoustic sealants apart is their ability to swell when exposed to high temperatures, typically above 150°C. This swelling action creates a dense, hard foam that seals the gaps and voids, preventing the passage of smoke and fire through openings around the building.

The importance of intumescent sealants in fire safety cannot be overstated. When a fire breaks out, it can spread quickly through the gaps and voids in a building, resulting in the loss of life, property damage, and business disruption. Using intumescent sealants can significantly reduce these risks by creating an effective barrier against the passage of smoke and fire.

Moreover, acoustic sealants are an essential component of modern building design as they prevent the transmission of noise from one room to another. Through their sound-absorbing properties, they create a comfortable and productive living and working environment.

Using intumescent and acoustic sealants not only provides reliable protection against fire and smoke but also contributes to the overall sustainability and energy efficiency of the building. By blocking these damaging elements, intumescent and acoustic sealants can help maintain a consistent temperature within the building.

“The Purpose of Passive Fire Protection is to contain or slow the spread of fire and smoke allowing sufficient time for evacuation and emergency response”

Fire Safety Legislation now requires that building owners take full
responsibility for all aspects of fire safety within their premises. They are required as part of their risk assessment process to ensure that the fire rating elements of the building
structure meet current legislation. Once a fire has started it is of paramount importance to stop the fire from spreading to other parts of the building. A fire can spread in many ways, but the correct installation of fire stopping materials can prevent this.
