FSPG Firebatt

FSPG Batt is a coated stone wool board used to reinstate the fire resistance performance of flexible & rigid wall and rigid floor constructions where apertures are penetrated by single or multiple services. The FSPG Batt is tested with a variety of services including multi composite pipes, metallic pipes, plastic pipes, all with or without insulation, cable trays and cables, as well as smoke extract and fire resistant ducts. The FSPG range of reactive products has been tested for use with the FSPG Batt. FSPG Batts are supplied coated in both single and double side versions in 50mm and 60mm thickness.

Key Installation Points

  • For good adhesion the surfaces of the building elements shall be free of any dust or grease and may need to be primed. On good, clean virgin concrete & masonry, no priming required.

  • Ensure that the aperture and services in question are tested with FSPG Batt and the site conditions are within the application specification.

  • Measure the size of the opening, relevant position and size of the services. Mask all surfaces where necessary to ensure the aesthetics of FSPG Fire & Acoustic Acrylic.

  • Draw these details onto the FSPG Batt and cut out using a suitable saw.

  • Using a trowel or pallet knife apply a thick layer of FSPG Fire & Acoustic Acrylic to all areas of contact around the opening and services. Apply a similar thickness of FSPG Fire & Acoustic Acrylic to the all edges of the cut FSPG Batt.

  • Fit the cut FSPG Batt into the opening, ensuring a tight friction fit.

  • Push the FSPG Batt firmly in to the opening using the flat of the hand. Continue the above procedure to fill the opening ensuring that a layer of FSPG Fire & Acoustic Acrylic is applied to all areas of contact between the boards. The seal should be made up from as few pieces of FSPG Batt as practicable.

  • Any small gaps in the seal left when all cut pieces have been installed should be tightly packed with off -cuts and coated with FSPG Fire & Acoustic Acrylic. A layer of FSPG Fire & Acoustic Acrylic should be applied to all joint lines formed.

  • To complete the installation a small bead of FSPG Fire & Acoustic Acrylic should be applied around the extremities of the opening and services. Whatever the edges of the seal line with the wall / floor surface, the bead of FSPG Fire & Acoustic Acrylic should be smoothed to overlap the wall / floor surface by approximately 5mm.

  • A FSPG double Batt system may have a requirement for structural supports, they should be steel back to back angles circa 40mm x 40mm x 1.2mm thickness. All joints to be off-set or staggered.

When cable trunking pass through the seal ensure that the inside is filled with FSPG Pillows.
