Electrical socket boxes provide a fire risk and can act as a catalyst for
the passage of fire through fire rated constructions. ROCKWOOL®
Intumescent Putty Pads provide fire resistance for electrical socket
boxes which penetrate fire resisting constructions. Using the latest
technology, they can help to reduce noise transfer through the construction.
ROCKWOOL Intumescent Putty Pads are manufactured from a non-setting, flexible silicone-based intumescent polymer that possesses a low smoke emission. Should there be a fire, these Intumescent Putty Pads will activate at a temperature of 200°C where the pad will expand to fill the space left by burnt out socket boxes, creating a seal that will prevent the passage of fire and smoke.
ROCKWOOL Putty Pads provide an efficient and clean way to fulfil the requirements of current building regulations for noise transfer and fire stopping. Additionally, this product fully complies with BS476: Part 20 (1987) regulations.
Assured protection – ROCKWOOL Intumescent Putty Pads offer up to 2 hours fire resistance, ensuring protection against fire and smoke passage.
Available in small quantities - manufactured in pre-cut shapes and can be bought in small quantities, which ensures a simple and cost-effective installation process.
