Precast Concrete Firewall Panels
The ACP precast concrete firewall system is a fast track construction method for fire containment walls providing up to 4 hours fire rating.
Interlocking prestressed concrete panels span between building columns to produce foundation free, smooth, firewalls which in addition can perform the duties of security or retaining walls.
Alternatively the precast firewall units may be used vertically to produce fire containment compartments within clear spans of buildings.
Precast concrete panels are manufactured to suit individual requirements and are available in a range of widths (0.5m, 0.7m, 1m, 1.1m 1.2m, 1.5m) that can be combined to achieve the desired wall height. The flexibility of manufacture enables the precast wall panels to be produced to almost any size to suit the building layout.
The precast concrete firewall panels are manufactured in three standard thicknesses (design specification) and various fire exposure ratings. Most prestressed concrete panels have a standard fire rating of one hour exposure however for longer fire exposure our engineers can design the panels to increase this rating to four hours in the most extreme case.
