Fireshield® vapour permeable membrane has been awarded certification from both LABC and LABSS confirming that the product meets Building Regulation approval in England, Wales and Scotland.
The culmination of leading research to produce a vapour permeable membrane with a fire proof surface, Fireshield has a unique intumescent composition that actively reacts to prevent fire taking hold. The unique intumescent coating extinguishes fire rather than just resisting it, and significantly reduces the formation of droplets and smoke.
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 over 18m high.
