Description

Rock Fibre Slabs

High-density Rockwool slabs with an intumescent coating on both main faces. Suitable for use as a permanent fire barrier in non-load bearing walls, floors and ceilings, as well as around services. Supplied with intumescent jointing compound which is ideal for use over door frames between the door edge and ceiling. Its pliable material makes it easy to cut or resize with a sharp blade to suit any void. It’s possible to paint or also decorate over slabs without impairing its fire protective properties.

Supplied in 60mm thickness to provide effective support and fire protection, making them suitable to fill large wall openings. Using thicker slabs in larger gaps seals off voids and spaces more effectively. Also suitable for floors, however for large floor openings, it is recommended to add additional support using chicken wire mesh to reinforce strength and durability. Intumescent slabs provide up to 4 hours fire rating dependant on thickness and also requirements. Where services and PVC pipes pass through walls or ceilings, Firoblok or intumescent wraps can be used for extra fire protection.

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

with the adhesive supplied, ensuring that Envirograf Wraps are fitted around any
PVC, copper or steel pipes and PVC electrical trunking.
For steel electrical trunking fit pads inside where passing through the slab. For cable
trays, then use Envirograf Product 29 cable tray pillows.
For floor openings 1m² without support. For hole sizes over 1m², firstly fit chicken
wire 1½” diameter, support around the perimeter with Envirograf FB/C1 Metal
Supports and wire mesh to services passing through the opening. For large openings
Product 4, ref: SUP Metal Supports can be used.

or steel trunking, fit Envirograf Pads and Cable Tray Pillows over cable trays or fit

IS60 slab – this is a slightly smaller slab in size but very high density. Ideally suited to
large openings or complete walls, where ladders may need to be leant against or
areas where the filled area needs to be extra strong. Again, all services passing
through the slab must have Wraps, etc., around the pipes and services.
The coated slab is ideal for under computer room raised floors as a firebreak.
