Fireshield® is a vapour permeable membrane for use on walls behind cladding. The unique coating elimiates fire spread rather than just resisting it. It is installed and ﬁxed to the substrate in the same manner as standard breather membranes using mechanical ﬁxings.
Fire proof surface - unique composition actively reacts to prevent ﬁre taking hold
Vapour permeable walling underlay for use either directly onto sheathing or insulation
Class B, s1-d0 but performs differently to other similar class products
Complies with BS5250, BS4016 & NHBC requirements for vapour permeable walling underlays
Ideal for use in rainscreen / façade construction
Suitable for applications over 18m high
The development of Fireshield®, a new vapour permeable membrane, designed specifically to improve the fire protection behind cladding, leads the way in continuing to provide high quality membrane solutions for controlling the heat, air, moisture movement in buildings (HAMM).
Fireshield is the culmination of leading research to produce a vapour permeable membrane with a fire proof surface, which has a unique composition that actively reacts to prevent fire taking hold. The unique coating of Fireshield actively extinguishes fire rather than just resisting it, and significantly reduces the formation of droplets and smoke.
Fireshield is classified as Class B, s1 –d0 according to the Euroclass system, which classifies the reaction to fire performance of building products. The performance of Fireshield is in advance of the requirements of the current classification grading.
Fireshield complies with BS5250, BS4016 and NHBC requirements for vapour permeable walling underlays. It is installed and fixed to the substrate in the same manner as standard breather membranes using mechanical fixings. Applications include both commercial and residential buildings including apartments and student accommodation, as well as Rainscreen cladding and applications in multiple storey buildings.
