Compound mixed to form fire barrier
FR230 Fire Stopping Compound is a gypsum-based mortar used to reinstate the fire resistance performance of floor constructions where they have been provided with apertures for the penetration of single or multiple services. FR230 provides a safe working platform for loads up to 2.5 kN/m² when installed in full accordance with our recommendations.
FR230 is used to stop the spread of fire and smoke around services that pass-through compartment walls and floors, whilst providing an unsupported load bearing capacity (see Specification Information). The system also provides thermal, acoustic and air sealing performance.
FR230 is suitable for the following service penetrations; single and bunched cables, cable trays, cable ladders, trunking**, non-combustible pipes, ducting/damper penetrations* and combustible pipes**.
Typical areas of use include health and leisure facilities, schools, universities, hotels, commercial, retail, and industrial buildings.
* Damper manufacturer should be consulted prior to application
** A suitable closer device will be required
