VEDAFEU C Rope firestop system

Description

VEDAFEU C rope firestop system consists of a core of fireproof and rotproof mineral fibres bound by an outer braiding of fibreglass thread. They are resistant to water and humidity, as well as to most aggressive chemicals and micro-organisms. VEDAFEU C rope firestop system meets norms for horizontal and vertical joints: tested without sealant and with a movement of +20%, they come in diameters from 12 mm to 180 mm and are EI 240 (fire integrity and thermal insulation of 240 minutes without failure) rated for all joints with gaps from 10 mm to 120 mm.

Use

• Firestop in horizontal and vertical joints: floor, wall and ceiling joints, joints between prefabricated façade elements, joints between floor edges and prefabricated façades. • For fire partitions, conduit penetrations, services ducts, protection of neoprene supports. • Sealing of joints on masonry edges: fire barrier between floors and curtain walls (see Application Examples). For the installation of cords, refer to the Installation Instructions no. 1 and no. 2 that are validated by the relevant classification certifications. Suitable for any type of building: hospitals, office, industrial and residential buildings, hotels, shopping centres, car parks, schools, colleges, stations, airports, stadiums, etc.

Composing

VEDAFEU C firestop systems consist of a core of fireproof and rotproof mineral fibres bound by an outer braiding of fibreglass thread. Their specific weight varies with the diameter to ensure their flexibility and ease of compression.

Finishes and special pieces

VEDAFEU C ropes are suitably marked so that they can be easily identified and an inspection after installation can confirm that the correct product has been used. Waterproofing & protection: Some floor, wall and ceiling expansion joints might require additional protection. For a waterproof joint, the upper section of the joint must be filled with an elastomeric sealant (see data sheet Vedaflexsil), or a waterproof membrane must be applied to the joint (see data sheet EPDM-S Membrane). A joint cover, a flexible section or a mechanical joint can also close the expansion joint.
