Application Instructions

The under floor fire barrier is layed on top of the ceiling.

Individual sections of the barrier should be overlapped by 50mm.
For acoustic requirement to U value and to meet Document E (H in Scotland) a 40mm thick sponge is supplied for the width between the joists – simply push into place between joists once the barrier is fitted.
