Description

Ceiling Rose Gaskets

Innovative intumescent fire-rated ceiling rose gaskets for light fittings. Within this range we also manufacture gaskets suited for Marshall-Tufflex or dry lining boxes. Lightweight, flexible intumescent gasket placed between ceiling rose fittings and the ceiling. Manufactured in numerous sizes to fit various light fittings. Provides both acoustic and fire protection.

Circular shaped gaskets to place around light fittings. Ceiling rose gaskets fit over the ceiling rose or hook plate fits where more than two cables pass through the ceiling. A hole is made in the gasket through which the cables are passed. Designed with a self-adhesive backing to adhere onto the surface.

In the event of a fire, the intumescent expands to seal the light fitting, preventing fires from spreading out of control.

Intumescent fire barrier pads, meeting the requirements of BS7671:2008 IEE Wiring Regulations. 15mm thick acoustic sponge provide an effectual solution for building requiring sound insulation. Acoustic protection covers are tested in accordance with BS EN ISO 140-3 (1995) and rated to BS EN ISO 717/1 (1997). Tested to EN1364-1:2015.

Application Instructions

Intumescent gaskets are essential in metal or plastic boxes where
cables pass back through a wall. Gaskets must be fitted to all dry lining boxes in
partition walls. Without these gaskets fire can spread into the partition within 4-5
minutes. Where cables run through back to back boxes in brick or block walls, flames
can pass through within 6 minutes, resulting in a wall or partition only 6 minutes of
fire integrity.
Gaskets for use inside metal or plastic boxes are made to the size of the box and
come with self-adhesive fixing on the back. Once the backing paper has been peeled
off the fixing strip, the gasket can be adhered to the inside of the box. Holes can be
cut into the gasket with a sharp knife to receive cables, or the gasket can be cut to fit
the back of the box if cables are already fitted. Dry lining boxes in walls have two
pads per box, made to size and adhered top and bottom.
Plasterboard ceiling rose boxes can be protected by means of an intumescent cover
which folds up and is passed through the hole in the ceiling. A hole is then cut in the
cover to receive the cables, which are then pulled through the cover, box and ceiling
before connecting the ceiling rose.
Ceiling rose gaskets to fit over the ceiling rose or hook plate should be fitted where
more than two cables pass through the ceiling. A hole is made in the gasket through
which the cables are passed. The backing paper of the self adhesive fixing strip is
then peeled off and the gasket is adhered to the ceiling. The pendant or light fitting
can then be fitted.
