Description
CE ETA Label for Astro PFP FR Boards

The Astro PFP FR Board is designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke through openings in fire rated walls and floors where openings are formed to allow the installation of multiple building services. It will also maintain the acoustic design performance in fire rated walls and floors.

The Astro PFP FR Board consists of a high density stone wool core, over-coated with Astro PFP FR Coating. The top coating provides additional protection by significantly reducing the permeability of the stone wool core and preventing the passage of hot gases, thus reducing the temperature rise on the unexposed side and reducing heat conduction through the building services.

Astro PFP FR Board is available coated on one or two sides, depending on the seal design to provide the required fire resistance. On site, Astro PFP FR Board must be used together with Astro PFP Acrylic for sealing around building services, joints and edges of the FR Board and the surrounding construction.

Installation

We have technical representatives who provide assistance in the selection and specification of the products on this site and should be consulted for exact installation and product suitability. Ensure an early engagement with ourselves, designers, main contractor and specialist installers before any installation. Other trades and/or manufacturers may need to be consulted. For in-depth information, specification and technical advice please call our Head Office on:

Telephone: +44 (0)1329 844 500

Email: sales@astroflame.com

Maintenance

All interested parties, designer, specifier, main contractor and specialist installers should provide access to allow the fire stopping seals to be regularly inspected and maintained, as well as records kept of such maintenance at minimum periods of 12 months, as required by the Regulatory Reform Order, and repaired if necessary. Reference should be made to ASFP TGD 17 – Code of Practice for the Installation and Inspection of Fire Stopping.

Competency

It is vital that those entrusted to design or install a fire stopping product have the necessary levels of competence to undertake the task professionally and thoroughly. The level of competency required will be commensurate with the expected complexity of the building. All designers must eliminate, reduce or control foreseeable risks that may arise during installation, construction or maintenance when preparing or modifying designs. Clients should ensure that the principal designer and principal contractor carry out their duties under CDM regulations. The ASFP foundation course in passive fire protection provides essential knowledge as part of demonstrating competency and understanding in this key fire protection specialism.

Health and Safety

The product does not present any known health hazards during or after installation. Normal good industrial and personal hygiene practices should be observed. For further information on health and safety requirements please contact the technical team on:
