Fire barriers, or ‘Fire Batt’ as they may be known are used to provide fire and acoustic barriers for voids created by the passage of services in both dry wall systems and masonry walls and floors.


Types of penetrating services may include steel and copper pipes, PVC/HDPE/ABS cables often supported on ladders or trays or mechanical ducts. Most fire barriers are tested to provide the capability of up to 2 hours fire resistance and the same in heat insulation.
