FB180 Ablative Batt 60mm Wall System

FIREFLY Stand: 5/B110

FIREFLY® FB180 Ablative Batt – 60mm Wall System provides a single layer EI60:E90 fire-rated compartmentation wall that can be installed free-standing or within timber or plasterboard applications.

The FIREFLY® FB180 Ablative Batt Wall System can be installed as a non-load bearing compartmentation wall into restricted areas such as lofts and roof voids

It can be friction-fitted into typical existing supporting timber frames and also used within a double layer plasterboard wall

In all instances, whether free-standing or working with existing timber/plasterboard structures, the FB180 60mm Batt Wall System provides an upgraded 90 minutes Integrity & 60 minutes Insulation

FIREFLY® FB180 Ablative Batt Wall System is tested with expected penetrations including the FIREFLY® Access Panel. See Installation Drawings/Manual for full details

A complementary FIREFLY® FB180 Ablative Batt 60mm Floor System is also available

Layers of mineral wool are combined to create a 60mm thick board product, with an ablative coating factory-applied to both sides. The board has a weight of 180kg/m3 with a rigidity that makes it suitable for friction fitting.

Batt is cut to size to friction fit between timber (min. 90 x 38mm C16 softwood) that must additionally be treated with FIREFLY® Ablative Coating to maintain the fire rating of the batt – EI60:E90
