Where specifications call for the use of flame retardant boxing to conceal surface mounted fire sprinkler system pipework installations, Versa FR is the perfect solution, as it is manufactured from Euroclass B standard compliant board.
Fabricated from flame retardant FSC© ‘Chain of Custody’ certified material, Versa FR incorporates a white painted finish to present a joint-less and easy to clean surface, which integrates easily with the interiors of flats, as well as communal areas.
Versa FR can be easily cut to length on site and drilled to accommodate fire sprinkler heads and the boxing is secured simply by screw fixing to timber battens or aluminium angles, which also allows easy access for inspection and routine sprinkler maintenance.
A range of dedicated Versa FR accessories is also available including internal and external corners, as well as stop ends. When running lengths are butted end to end or where they join Versa FR internal and external corners, it is recommended that an intumescent mastic sealant is used to ensure the integrity of the boxing.
Where the Versa FR boxing’s vertical and horizontal legs abut the fabric of the building (ceiling & wall), please consult the fire officer for guidance and to obtain the correct mastic specification.
