Description

Fire Mortar

An asbestos-free dry mix, add water and then mixed like plaster. Shuttering boards are not required. Lay Rockwool slabs into the opening, leaving the required depth for the mortar. Upon setting, the mortar is load-bearing. Drilled with wood bits to allow for the installation of services. Used in conjunction with either intumescent slabs or also non-fibrous slabs, the mortar provides a permanent fire stopping solution for load-bearing floors, walls and ceilings. For areas over 600 x 900mm, it’s essential to reinforce with 30mm chicken wire mesh, fixed with FB/C straps and support battens. Refer to the Technical Data Sheets for full details of the correct installation of mortar.

In the case where pipes, services or cables pass through the surface of a wall or floor, it is essential to fit Intumescent Wraps, Firoblok or Intumescent Collars to reinforce fire protection.

Available in dark grey, however also available in pink to identify mortar as fire-rated if required. Should you wish, we can supply a light aggregate to add to the Fire Mortar in 6.25kg bags.


Fire barriers provide an effective solution for gaps as well as voids within buildings that require fire protection. Browse our full range of fire barrier products.
